    ~~~~~A Few Other Things About Laughter~~~~~~
    You laugh, I laugh...you cry, I cry.
    You fall, I laugh, then fall too, because I was laughing too hard.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    I laugh even harder when I try to explain why I'm laughing.

    My favorite pain is in my stomach when my friends make me laugh too hard.
    Nothing compares with the stomach ache I get from laughing with my best friend.

    That awkward moment when you can't stop laughing while telling a joke, and you're finally done, your friend doesn't even get it.

    emoticon Laughter... a tranquilizer with no side effects, so please take it regularly emoticon

    emoticon emoticon emoticon ~ IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER ~ emoticon emoticon emoticon
    ~~Erma Bombeck~~~(written after she found out she was dying from cancer).

    I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth
    would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for the day.
    I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.
    I would have talked less and listened more.
    I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.
    I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried much less
    about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.
    I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.
    I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.
    I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day
    because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.
    I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.
    I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.
    I would never have bought anything just because it was practical,
    wouldn't show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.
    Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment
    and realized that the wonderment growing inside me
    was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.
    When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said,
    "Later. Now go get washed up for dinner."
    There would have been more "I love you's." More "I'm sorry's."
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute...
    look at it and really see it, live it .and never give it back. I would stop sweating the small stuff.
    I wouldn't worry about who doesn't like me, who has more, or who's doing what. Instead,
    I would cherish the relationships I have with those who love me.
    I would think about what God HAS blessed me with, and what I am doing each day
    to promote myself mentally, physically, emotionally.

    After reading this, I realized how many more "I would" add to this list.
    "I would" share this with my friends, because my life is pretty wonderful with them in it.

    Hey you......yes you,
    Stop being unhappy with yourself,
    Stop wishing you looked like someone else
    or wishing people liked you as much as they like someone else,
    Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you,
    Stop hating your body, your face, your face, your quirks..
    love them for without those things you wouldn't be you
    and why would you want to be anyone else? be confident
    with who you are, smile..it'll draw people in.
    If anyone hates you because you are happy with yourself,
    then just say "screw it, my happiness will not depend on others anymore.
    I'm happy because I love who I am. I love my flaws..I love my imperfections..
    they make me "me" and "me" is pretty amazing"
