March Madness - Day 3

Laugh until your cheeks hurt!

(Hey....get your mind out the gutter. Keep it clean 😜)

Many people look at me and see a super serious person. I tend to be straight-forward and to the point. I do smile at times. I actually love to smile. A smile can brighten someone's day. So why not smile?!

The catch is transitioning that smile into laughter.

I know you've heard the old saying "Laughter is good for your soul."

Well, it's not just a cliche. It's a fact!

Who do you surround yourself with that allows you to release tension, let go, shred hurts and pain, let your hair down, and just be?

That's probably the same person, or group of people, who brings a smile to your face. Makes you laugh. Makes your side ache with pain. Makes your cheeks hurt.

If you don't have at least one of those people in your life, go out and find them. Pray that such a person be sent your way. Begin to be that person for someone else.

Life has it's ups and downs. Be sure to keep laughter in the midst of everything in order to control just how low your downs take you.

Surround yourself with laughter.
          It will give you hope.
               It will give you energy.
                    It can make you feel on top of the world.

What will you do today to make someone laugh until their cheeks hurt?

I landed in Florida on Sunday, July 16, 2006. Since I didn't start classes until August, I had a month or so to get acclimated to the area and to run errands. I needed to find a daycare, drive by schools, and establish residency. All of this was to be done with three kids in toe, all under the age of five.

I was up to the challenge. One afternoon in August, we were headed out for errands. Once I got to the car, I realized that I didn't have any water. I ran back upstairs to our apartment. When I opened the freezer to reach for a bottle of ice cold water, I was stopped in my tracks by a ring box and a note.

Yes! This man left his family behind for me.
