So…it has been ALOT harder than I thought to post everyday. Not that I don’t follow through on my commitments. Rather, there was so much life to live this past weekend, I didn’t have time to sit down and chronicle my thoughts. But today, I am trying to get back on track so I am sharing the #HappyActs for today – “I will share my favorite joke.”
Now this is an easy one for me. I love to laugh and to make others laugh. I truly believe it is the best medicine and does wonders for the soul. I was thinking about the many jokes I have heard over the years and the one that sticks out is a simple one. It is one that is familiar to many I am sure. It’s that simple knock-knock jokes our kids love to tell us –
“Knock-knock…who’s there?…banana…banana who?…knock-knock…who’s there?… banana… banana who?…knock-knock…who’s there?… orange…orange who? Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?”
I remember when both of my daughters reached the age when they could tell that joke. But most importantly, I remember the joy and laughter it brought us all as they proudly told it. It’s a simple joke, yet I am sure it brought us some much needed laughter when we heard it.
Life can be full of heartache, pain, sadness and worry. Let’s all be grateful for laughter. Make it a point to make someone laugh today!
