the miracle of humor

LAUGHTER

"We are all here for a spell, get
all the good laughs you can."
-- Will Rogers


When I first heard recovering alcoholics laughing, I thought I was in the wrong place. I was angry that they treated the disease so lightly. Then slowly I began to see that laughter is part of joy --- a deep joy that comes from personal healing. Laughter is spiritual because it is a positive response to life. It is the noise of optimism.


And there is so much in life to laugh about --- not only the funny things we did, but also the "humor" that abounds in living. How funny is our self-righteousness! How amusing we are in courtship. How ridiculous we appear when we pretend to be serious and "in charge".


Laughter is the conversation of angels.

Let me see the miracle of humor in the gift of life --- and let me be prepared to share it. :D
