Lots of fun and laughter...

... was (were) had in the LoneStar Antiques Mall tea room Saturday.
(at 5605 Denton Highway, Haltom City, TX)

Here is the Halloween group....

and here is the Red Hat Society group....
Lots and lots of laughter was going on.... so much so that folks at other tables (who didn't get the costume memo) were laughing at the others laughing. (I'm laughing just thinking about it all.)

Oh, and I found the LISTEN TO LAUGHTER (videos and audio of people laughing) website. It's pretty entertaining.... and healthy, according to lots of people.

Laughter's healing effect was written about in ANATOMY OF AN ILLNESS by Norman Cousins.


In my Google search of 'laughter as medicine' I found many good articles.  One of them is "Laughter is the Best Medicine" in HELPGUIDE.org.

  

--------------
'Course you may not feel like laughing.
Well, sometimes life gives us days that are not for laughing, but for crying.
And believe-you-me, I'm all for crying when you need do.
Oh yes.
Oh yes.


But I love to laugh.

And I love these two Bible verses ...

"... the cheerful heart has a continual feast."
- Proverbs 15:15

and

"A cheerful heart is good medicine,
    but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."
-Proverbs 17:22 



and along that line, here is a super quote....
The Christian is a (person) of joy...A gloomy Christian is a contradiction of terms, and nothing in all religious history has done Christianity more harm than its connection with black clothes and long faces.
- William Barclay
