Coping mechanisms are healthy. My coping mechanism is humor.. sometimes funny.. sometimes silly.. sometimes super dark. In a very scary world.. right now, my friends who pass me anything that will make me laugh.. are my favorite friends. I had a friend in junior high who sent me a card once that read, “The one who laughs- lasts.” I concur.
Please skip by if you are not amused. Definitely not for everyone.. but covid19 .. eat it.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
