L is for Laugh
Everyone need to laugh now and then. There's a saying - "a good laughter prolongs life", and I think it's true in many ways. To laugh is good for both body and mind, and it's contagious in the way that if one or two is laughing it's hard to not join them.
Today is no day for laughs, most would say. My mother-in-law died yesterday (read: Tuesday). It did not come totally unecpected. She's been ill for a long time, better for a time then worse again. Not that that matters. She will still be missed, probably more than she ever could have imagined.
I stuck to the theme of laughter, because we need it. Now, in times of sorrow and mourning, we need it more than ever. We will not give in, will not give up, will not stop laughing.
She would not want us to.
