“Like a welcome

Summer rain,

humor may suddenly

cleanse and cool

the earth, the air

and you.”


~ Langston Hughes


What a beautiful metaphor, the summer rain and humor.

Laughter is the best medicine, learning to laugh at ourselves

and with others, not at others.

There is a fellowship that has a rule #62 that states,

“Don’t take yourself too damn seriously.”

Today, be the person your Higher Power wants you to be,

be kind, be loving and be happy.

Happiness is the summer rain that cleanses the soul.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
