Thoughts - December 20, 2016

“Really, for a man who had been out of practice for so many years it was a splendid laugh!”
― Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol.
I don't think there's anyone out there who doesn't know of the value of laughter - even for healing (so the studies show). But I always loved the part in A Christmas Carol when Dickens goes nuts with laughter. Suddenly, life was filled with light. He truly saw the beauty and connectedness of it all. I once dated a man simply because he made me laugh (not reason enough, but I do appreciate those memories at a time when laughter was much needed). I'm from a family who laughs loud and often (anyone who knows my brother can appreciate this!). So, here's a big Ho Ho Ho to all of you (I think that's how Santa laughs....)! - Beth Almond Ford
