We have a big, holiday weekend in front of us but don’t panic…I’ve got your back. Here are 4 funny jokes to keep you laughing:
Q: What’s the difference between love and marriage?
A: Love is blind and marriage is an eye-opener.
All my life I thought air was free…until I bought a bag of chips.
After waiting two hours for her date, Sarah concluded she’d been stood up. So, she changed into pajamas, made some popcorn and flopped down in front of the TV. Then the doorbell rang–it was her date. He took one look at Sarah and gasped, “You’re still not ready?”
Mom: Your great-aunt just passed away. LOL.
Son: Why is that funny?
Mom: It’s not funny, David. What do you mean?
Son: Mom, LOL means Laughing Out Loud.
Mom: I thought it meant Lots Of Love. I have to call everyone back.

To all our military people and families — Thank you!!
Everyone loves Spring, even with the high pollen levels that come with it.
You’ve just survived a long winter of snow and brown, leafless trees. Those first flowers and tender green leaves popping from the trees are like an espresso on the morning after a really late night. You smile, your energy increases and (if you’re like me) you itch to get out to work in the garden/yard.
We all know life is hard, full of trials and tribulations.
- They can be health issues, financial troubles, emotional trials or even grief from the loss of a loved one or a broken relationship.
- They can last a few days, a few weeks or even a few years.
- They may even occur together or overlap each other.
But, one thing they all have in common is that eventually the issue will be resolved.
- Financial troubles — you get a new job, you refinance your mortgage or maybe you sell a few items to get ready cash.
- Health issues — you get cured, get on the correct medicine or recuperate from a surgery.
- Emotional trials — you get a new therapist, you adjust to a new medication or you get some much-needed support.
- Grief — you “learn to live” without the loved one (that’s about all you can do), you get back into the dating pool or you rebuild your self-esteem damaged after an abusive or bad relationship.
Since the trials and tribulations are so rough getting through, it makes the upswing afterwards like Spring after a tough Winter. The sun feels warmer, the trees are budding out and early flowers are popping up everywhere. Rejoice!
So whenever you are going through a rough patch in your life, keep in mind that a Spring is on the horizon. Sooner or later, this trouble will be resolved and you will be celebrating a Spring.
Here are a couple inspirational quotes that may help:
“This too, shall pass.” (Bible)
“The sun will come out…tomorrow…” (Annie)
“Keep your face always toward the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.” (Walt Whitman)
This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is smile. Boy, that’s an easy one because so many things can put a smile on my face. Some that top the list would be nature, my family, gurgling babies and cats. There’s a very good reason why there are so many funny and adorable cat photos and videos online. It’s to make people like me laugh and smile, boosting our mood and lowering our stress level.
So here are a few photos of my two, adorable smile-makers. I hope they give you a big smile, too.
Have a great day and share a smile with someone else today. A smile is universally understood. 🙂 🙂 🙂
