The word this week is LAUGH or LAUGHTER
What I am thinking of more than "derision" is "amusement". Sometimes we just need amusement or laughter to distract us from the sorrows of life. Halloween just seems to be a time for me to notice the smiles and the humor in others, from the faces carved in a pumpkin to the sheet pulled over the head.
A friend went to a party this weekend and I loved her simple humor in her costume. She was a deviled egg and also took deviled eggs to the potluck. All she did was wear devil horns and a shirt with an egg painted on it. That just made me smile; so simple, but creative.
Driving in the country recently I found this farm with smiles all around the grounds. Again I smiled.
Yes, there is so much sorrow and hurt happening in the world that for today I need to notice the smiles.
Sometimes even the scary picture or a scary costume can make me smile when balanced with a smiling pumpkin.
Have a great week, dear friends!
