"I suppose if we couldn't laugh at things that don't make sense, we couldn't react to a lot of life." Hobbes

This is my Calvin & Hobbes quote of the day. I completely agree with it! We experience things every day that don't make much sense to our mortal minds. Actually, I don't know about you, but most of life doesn't make sense to me. Everything confuses me...such as: Why all the tv shows I want to watch are on at the exact same time?, Why I feel bonded to the stars of those shows when they pass out on live tv?, Why changes have to be made right when I really need things to stay the same?, and Why stress has to affect every aspect of your life? However, even though I don't understand it all, life really is so much easier when we can smile and laugh at it all. When we are having days that are just super rough and we don't understand why we have to go through them, if we just smile and giggle a bit the rain clouds start to disappear. I love the saying, "It's easy enough to be happy when the sun shines on the town, but the man worthwhile is the man who can smile when his pants are falling down"

Here's to hoping we all find something to smile about today...even if it's just the fact that we have absolutely nothing to smile about!
