My $.02: The quought and the explanation are just fantastic. We are all at loss of words when something bad happens to someone close to us. If you have faced that problem, think about Christine’s question and you may have an answer.

Christine’s Quought for the Day:

How can I bring laughter into the lives of others facing adversity?

Christine’s thoughts on the Quought:
When friends and family learn that someone is facing adversity, they often don’t know what to say. They don’t want to say the wrong thing, so they often end up saying nothing. Humor is a great connector of people. It breaks down communication barriers and puts people at ease. So the next time you hear bad news from someone you care about, ask yourself, “Is there a way to make this person laugh, if even for a moment?” A shared gift of laughter is a priceless gift to the spirit.
