(I am the one on the end in the scarf enjoying a good laugh =) 

 I see laughter as a gift from God! When I laugh with my family and my friends and it makes our time together even better!! You may not feel like laughing or think you have anything to laugh about because of circumstances in your life BUT I have found laughter even for just a moment brings a sense of peace, relief and joy and it’s worth it even for just that moment.  I love laughing and I feel very blessed if I can bring laughter to others!! I hope that you enjoy laughter in your life on a regular basis!!!

Humor and laughter strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress. Best of all, this priceless medicine is fun, free, and easy to use. Read More HERE
