Add a Touch of Laughter to Life...



This is a pretty chaotic world in which most of us live.

A lot of people are hurting. Others are in poor health or in states of depression.

It's all part of the human condition, I guess.



One thing each of has the ability to do is add a touch a laughter to life.

That means not only our own lives, but to others' lives as well.

Several years ago, I picked up a rickety old reindeer in a thrift shop.

He had me smiling even before I got to the cash register to pay for him.

He's a little bit ridiculous looking with small colored balls and a tin star hanging from his wiry antlers.

Poor fellow's leg came off a couple years ago but I still didn't have the heart to throw him away.

So he just got tucked away in a Christmas bin and lived in the attic until this year.

Out he came for Christmas 2016. His leg got glued and he's on a downstairs counter.

It's hard not to crack up when one sees him. He's just so doggone cute.

He also makes most people smile the minute they see him.

HOW DO YOU ADD A BIT OF HUMOR TO LIFE?

I want that reindeer - I LOVE HIM - where did you get him?

Oh, yeah! You really CAN'T help smiling when you see him.
You're right. Laughing and sharing laughter is a HUGE gift -- to give AND receive.
(I'm trying to come up with a way I help other people laugh and am having a bit of difficulty to be specific....)

I am not good at adding humor to my life or anyone else's. I guess that is a trait you have to inherit and I didn't get it. Glad you did though.

He is cute indeed, good that you managed to rehab him :))
Thanks for spreading the joy! Much needed energy at this time of the year and when so many people are going through pain, losses...

I always tell my sister that you have to have a little fun every day. I guess I am the less serious of the two of us.

Your reindeer is a cutie. Glad he brightens your day.

My friend had an animated snowman that sang, "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas." I just loved it. Of course, her grandchildren played it until the adults were ready to scream. LOL!
