As I peered into the smears of paint stains, looking for hints of shapes, suggestions of lines and, in general, subjects of delight, I 'saw' this hilarious little fellow. When his form came into focus, I chuckled out loud. He was the perfect reminder to keep smiling and looking on the brighter side of life!
Laughter and humor are cheap medicines, with a time worn record. It's no wonder that the wisdom of the ancient sage, Solomon, still holds true.
"A cheerful heart is a good medicine...." Prov. 17:22
A smile can change an entire day's outcome and laughter can help transform our physical state. (No Joke: Humor Therapy Helps Patients Heal | Fox News)
Here's an amazing list of ways laughter helps us humans:
Physical Health Benefits:
Mental Health Benefits:
So.....with all these benefits, I wonder why we laugh as seldom as we do!
I love to laugh, but sometimes I just get stuck in life's trenches. Do you? This little painting is a 'note to self:' Smile more.LAUGH more! How do you remind yourself to have some laughs?
