Laughter is the best medicine

I was sitting with some friends last night waiting to go out and meet up for our friend’s going away party, and we were just watching America’s Funniest Home Videos.  I didn’t know that show was still on or they even still played reruns.  But we’re all sitting their cracking up and having a good time.
This morning I’m rudely awoken but an awful stomach ache and excruciating side pain at 5:30am.  It was so terrible that I was nearly in tears.  I laid in bed trying to distract myself from the pain because falling back asleep wasn’t working.  Someone posted a Jimmy Kimmel video where parents told their kids they ate all of their Halloween candy.  I burst out laughing.  And in that moment,I forgot about the pain and discomfort that was radiating through my body.

Sometimes laughter really is the best medicine.  Now that’s something to be grateful for.

**After reading my good friend’s blog the other evening, she decided that for the month of November, she’s posting something she’s grateful for; something as simple as a picture or quote or possibly something lengthy.  In the month that we come together and share what we’re grateful and thankful for, there seems to be no better way.  And it’s with that that I have decided to join her.  Will you join us? #gratefulseason
