When I was younger and had lots of responsibilities, I took life too seriously. Livin' life now on the flip side of 50 , to me means giving it the opposite response! So the first thing I look for in the Readers Digest is the joke pages , and the funnier the better! A cousin of mine is a constant source of humor each day -in his emails - he makes my day! Life is a little sweeter after a good laugh!
There's a little market near our home which my husband and I visit regularly. He heads straight for the stand that sells these funny little plaques that are all about life, and we laugh together. Now everyone who knows my husband knows he is a very opinionated person - goodhearted but opinionated! So without his knowing it, I purchased one of the plaques he laughed at that read: "The opinions expressed by the husband in this house are not necessarily those of the Management" ! I hung it on the wall near our breakfast table at a very conspicuous spot. This morning when I walked into the room I found the plaque turned around with the reading facing the wall. His comment when I mentioned it : I AM management ! Now you know as well as I do that if your husband is "management" it's because you the wife, allow him to be!
My favorite plaque is this one: "I'm on a thirty day diet - and so far I've lost 10 days!" They say laughter is good for the soul - so keep on laughing! - find a little humor in life and you'll last longer!
