    Laughter Through Tears

    One of my favorite movie lines is from "Steel Magnolias," where Dolly Parton's character says, "Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion." This experience really resonates with me; to feel deep sorrow over a lost loved one, tears streaming down your face...

    It Actually Works..

    If laughter did not exist, I would be a very miserable person and my life would be pointless to be living. I'm always stressed out and depressed but my sense of humor and laughter is what keeps me sane!!
