I recently watched “Steel Magnolias” again. That was one of the movies that could have me laughing so hard and then crying a minute later, or vice versa. And I recognized that the humor and the sadness were around things over which there was no control. It was about the vagaries of life.

It seems like when I look at what is going on in the world, there is little room for either the grieving or the joy. It seems things happen so fast and the potential for further tragedy looms largely. But there are still those who, even when they seem overwhelmed, persevere. I only have to look at many of the survivors of Katrina. And I have talked with several wounded veterans who are back from Iraq and am astonished at their sense of humor and their perspectives.

To me these are all winners and champions. To laugh with them certainly relieves a lot of my tension over the minor catastrophes I endure. I believe a really deep belly laugh should be prescribed for everyone, especially our politicians. It would certainly improve the health of each individual and the country and the world as a whole.

I hope you each find that sense of humor in your life and are able to celebrate the joy and the grief which life brings.

There is something so exquisitely right about mourning the loss of a loved one and simultaneously laughing about all the funny things we remember about them.
