Laughter





I often assisted my dad in whatever he was doing. I loved my dad and loved being around him. Don't get me wrong; he could sometimes be as tough as nails. I recall laughter as a boy as a release of stress and tension. I was a pretty anxious young boy. I was perceptive and could read situations easily. I knew when to engage or escape, depending on the circumstances around me.

 

I recall a time when we were moving to Lake Nasworthy. The house was incomplete, and Dad was a handyman. He decided to place the sheetrock, and I was his helper. The walls were easy. When we did the ceilings, it was very different. Dad had built a scaffold that was just tall enough for me to stand on my tip toes and get my end of the sheetrock high enough to nail it in. When I would get tired, I would begin to laugh, which caused Dad to laugh. We dropped several sheets of sheetrock that day. This was not a laughing matter, but working with him was so much fun. If he were here today, we could talk and laugh about that time many years later. This is a great memory. I recall he or I would accidentally bang our finger or hand with the hammer, and it would cause us to laugh. Sound crazy? Perhaps it was, but it was better than crying and just as relieving. Dad and I had many wonderful experiences.

 

I love to laugh, especially with friends and family. I rarely get off the phone with my two sisters or a great friend that we haven't talked about old times with a crazy amount of laughter. I have so many funny memories.

 

Laughter is often considered good for the soul due to its psychological, physical, and social benefits. Its ability to reduce stress, connect people, and create a positive outlook on life makes it a powerful mechanism for improving overall quality of life and enhancing one's sense of soulful well-being.

 

How about you? Are you laughing enough?

 

Watch for the blind spots.
