Benefits of Laughter...


Thank you for taking the time to add a pep to your step, a smile to your day, a laugh to a moment, a whistle on your lips, and whatever else these gatherings of laughter items brought your way. 

I have really enjoyed finding these, reading these, watching them, approving them, as it has really cheered up my world which has made people around me smile because seeing me smile (smiles are contagious, you know) has made them smile. 

So what are you waiting for? 

Go and have yourself a laughter party and change that frown upside down and take a moment to fill your life with some happiness and joy.
