Sometimes It's Good to Laugh

Not everything turns out exactly the way we plan.

We might go to great extremes to get one political candidate nominated by our party, only to have to accept another in his stead. We might work very hard, anyway, to try to help the nominee get into the debates, even though he was not our first choice. We might then learn that our party and all its ideals will be kept out of the national debates altogether. 

It might rain all day long almost every day, so that we cannot go out to play.

And then when we do finally go out to play, the pollen may be so high that it does crazy things to our system.

But if we have a sense of humor about it, and someone to laugh with, it is always better.

This will all blow over soon. Hang on in there and remember to laugh.

We just might survive it all, anyway. Who knows, there might be a meteor coming.

    1. Hi, Charla. Yes. Sometimes that's the best thing we can do.

  2. Great picture of you and Bow laughing together, Aya! At the absolute worst of times, it is indeed good to laugh. You've definitely had a tough go of it with the pollen this year! Nikki is battling its effects too and we're having to bathe her often to combat the pollen. Good to see you laugh! Your post made me laugh too. :-)

    1. Thanks, Kathy. Bow and I have been laughing together a lot lately. It does a body good! Sorry to hear that Nikki is suffering from allergies, too. Pollen season is almost over, I hope! Now if we could somehow turn around the national political scene, then maybe all our troubles would be over.

  3. Things can be disappointing, but at least you and Bow continue to work for the things you believe in. Very few individuals do that.

    1. Thanks, Julia. I actually do know many others who are working for what they believe in. It's just hard to accept that none of us count for anything in the big picture. Not giving up, though!
