Grandpa Clyde used to say, “You had to laugh!” whenever he told stories about something that had happened.
I’m not sure he was laughing when the thing was actually happening, but he knew you had to laugh when he looked back on it.
How many tough situations, crises, or plain old everyday events do you experience in a day, a week, a month…a lifetime?
What if we could pull ourselves out of these situations just long enough to hear the story we would tell? It won’t get us out of the situation, but might help us find the reason to laugh.
