AWRIGHT DEN: Good news, laughter
Over the last few weeks, I have been having some very “low” days and I am sure some of you have been as well. Life can be challenging at times and can present many storms that have the ability to slow us down and depress us. Although this may be true, there are so many things we can celebrate and be grateful for as we wait for these storms to pass.
One of the things we do have that we all must be thankful for is laughter and great friends. Laughter brings a sense of calm, relaxation and relief and great friends can also inspire and motivate you.
On Monday evening, a friend sent me an email and it came at the right time as I was in a grumpy mood and it immediately lifted me. I hope if your day or week or month was low that it also brings some joy and laughter to your life
