My four-legged fur children have no clue what day it is and my Mom died nearly a decade ago, so Mother’s Day is just another Sunday for me.
But this year, as I was looking for a card for the Boyfriend’s mother, I saw one that made me think of Mom and laugh.
I’d like to thank the makers of this card, because they get it. They know that not all mothers need sappy sentiment. My Mom would have assumed I was ill had I given her one of those “wishing you all the happiness in the world” cards.
In my family, laughter truly is the best medicine. We even told stories and laughed during visiting hours before my parents’ funerals.
Whether you laugh until it hurts or laugh to keep from crying, it’s good to throw back your head and have a good chortle every so often.
After all, you have to have a sense of humor to get through this joke we call life, right?
