Gift of Laughter

You ever have those days when you have so much to say but, at the same time, you have nothing to say.

Welcome to my present world.

It has been such an amazing week. There have been so many things that have gone on that have left me simply speechless…although, obviously not speechless enough to miss writing this blog entry.

I desperately wanted to start this week off with a blast of the funny, but I can not seem to ignore the reflective state that I’ve been in recently.

Now, I will be the first to admit that I am not always “on”, which is kind of a disappointing reality for some people.

But, this is one of those moments. Hopefully, no one is disappointed enough to stop reading.

I love making people laugh. It is a deep passion. So deep, in fact, that I’m pretty sure it is what makes me…me.

I am often reminded, by my mother, that over 30 years ago, I was the first person to make my little sister laugh. And, to this day, that thought brings much joy to my heart.

Whenever, I am able to give someone the gift of laughter, it is like receiving a gift, my self.

And, it really doesn’t matter how I accomplish the task. Whether I’m sitting in a living room, performing on stage or even writing this blog, if something I have said or done has brought a smile to someone’s face…I am equally satisfied.

Obviously, whenever anyone does something that they love doing, it is incredibly encouraging, and appreciated, when that thing gets acknowledged.

That is why I’m reflective today.

You see, over the last few days, I have received some awesome words of encouragement. They’ve been words that have not only affirmed my belief that I am good at what I’m doing (blogging and performing), but also that what I am doing is of worth.

These words have left me humbled, grateful and…feeling all warm and fuzzy.

The amazing thing is that the comments all came in this one particular wave. I find it very cool when stuff like that happens.

A single remark, although appreciated, can easily get forgotten, but when a few get packaged together and delivered, one after the other - from completely different and unexpected sources – it is difficult to ignore.

In fact, I really do believe that it has been gift from God. It was his way of telling my wife and I that we are moving in the right direction.

Well, that’s it for now. Thanks for listening. Now, that I got that off my chest, I can start trying to bring the funny again.

Keep on smiling and
Have a good one,
