Medicine




A dad found a letter from his 15-year-old son on his pillow. It read:

 

Dad,


I've decided to run away with my new girlfriend. She's older, has had many struggles, and she's pregnant. She needs me. We're moving into her trailer in the woods, where we have enough firewood for the winter. We dream of having many more children together.


She's shown me that drugs aren't as harmful as you taught me. We plan to grow marijuana and trade it for ecstasy and cocaine. I'm confident that science will eventually cure all her illnesses. She has been so good to me, Dad.


I can't wait to come back home with your grandchildren.


Love, John


PS: None of this is true. I am at Tommy's house. I just wanted to remind you there are worse things in life than a report card. It's in my center drawer. Love you, Dad. Call when it's safe to come home.

 

This letter had me laughing out loud! I got so caught up in the story that the ending surprised me. What a clever letter! It reminds me of Reader's Digest's "Laughter is the Best Medicine." There are countless things to laugh about if we take the time to find or create them.

 

Have you noticed how laughter is contagious? It's a social glue that strengthens people and relationships and enhances teamwork. Sharing a laugh with friends or coworkers can build a sense of connection.

 

Laughter isn't just a response to humor; it's a powerful antidote to stress, pain, and conflict. It can boost your mood, enhance your immune system, and improve your overall well-being. When you laugh, your body undergoes physiological changes incredibly beneficial to your health.

 

Whenever I feel down or stressed, I look for something that makes me laugh. Whether it's a funny movie, a joke, or a chat with a friend, remember that laughter is a great medicine. It is a highly effective way to boost your health and happiness.

 

How about you? Is laughter a medicine you can use to lift your spirits?

 

Watch for the blind spots.
