It’s been a tough week. I found myself thinking back, to the tough times faced by my family during hard times. In the Depression Era, the harder it got, the more people turned to humor, to moments of relief in a laugh, to get through. So many classic comedians got their start in the hardest times.
So today, in the midst of prayers for those who are suffering, I’d like to also thank all the people who try to cheer us up when the only option is to go through the hard times. My dad is really good at that. I probably get my dark sense of humor from him (he grew up in the Depression).
Do you sometimes use humor to deal with intense stress? All comments are entered into my monthly drawing for $10 AnaBanana gift card. Winner is announced in the first blog post of the new month.
