Laughter is good medicine. Whether you burn the turkey, or re-gift the same gift to the person who gave it to you last year, or don’t finish the Christmas cards until Dec 27th – you have a choice in the way you respond. When frustrations happen, you can fall apart and declare, “Everything is going wrong!” Or you can laugh and see the humor in life.
Certainly there are times when we need to cry and grieve, but there are also times when we need to let out a good hearty guffaw.
Keep the laughter flowing throughout the holidays with funny movies, games, playing in snow or simply telling old stories. Remember, never laugh at another person’s expense. Laughter should elevate others’ hearts, not hurt them. Be deliberate about choosing laughter during this season and throughout the year.
