I am too prideful
Monday I lost seven pounds
Tuesday I found them
Source Of All Blessings
You bless us
With humor – ours and others’.
Laughter at ourselves, our predicaments,
Laughter at our situation, its dangers,
With guffaws, chuckles, winces
We physically relax and let go.
Our worries of the moment
For a moment
Are replaced with re-connection
to the human joy
Thank you for the gift of humor.
May we laugh in difficult times,
at difficult times,
and at my bad jokes.*
