Humor and laughter are not necessarily the same thing. Humor permits us to see into life from a fresh and gracious perspective. We learn to take ourselves more lightly in the presence of good humor. Humor gives us the strength to bear what cannot be changed, and the sight to see the human under the pompous.

I weep a lot. I thank God I laugh a lot, too. The main thing in one's own private world is to try to laugh as much as you cry.

The Post Office

As I drove through here today, I remembered the countless times this spot has connected me to my far away family and friends.

I do enjoy the old fashion way of communicating through the post office.

Creative Campaigning

I ran across this over the weekend...  

She's a candidate for a local school board.

I call it creative campaigning at the farmer's market.
