Well, we are all fighting illness around here. I am trying to follow my own advice and fight feeling bad with laughter. It really works! From making up silly rhymes to laughing with Alyssa as she walks around with her washcloth on her head, I am finding a lot of reasons to laugh. Of course, Chase is thrilled. He is at the age where if we could be silly all day, he would be very content. I am reminded of a study that showed that children up to the age of 4 laugh about 400 times a day while adults only laugh an average of 15 times a day.
Starting today, we will laugh, laugh, laugh our way to health!
Proverbs 17:22 (NIV)
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
Thank you for giving us laughter. Laughter is another one of your wondrous creations that is so complicated that even scientists can not fully comprehend it. Remind me to be cheerful always, no matter the circumstance, for that will only help whatever situation I am dealing with. Help me to be a cheerful role model for my children that they will never forget to laugh. In Jesus name I pray.
