  1. I thought 8 & 14 were really funny. 9 & 15 were very thoughtful. My quote is from a Shoe funny strip. There is not intelligent life on other planets. Why should they be different from ours?

    My daughter in-law likes to read. I told her about your books. I’m sure before long you will have a new fan.

  2. “No pressure, no diamond
    No struggle, no strength!” Dr. Jerry Fowler I think?
    Thank you for the awesome quotes DiAnn! They are so encouraging and can change a mind set quickly for a better day! 🥰

  3. Oh and I love to laugh out loud, and #7 did just that. I saw myself and my hubby in that one, however we got married before we had the internet otherwise we’d probably be single.

  4. Number 3 and 14 made me laugh out loud.
    I needed a laugh tonight. Tomorrow I’m having a total shoulder replacement and I covet prayers for myself and my surgeon. Thank you.

  5. My daughter and I just finished a DIY project. It was a slow process. We took our time, but the medley of laughter and reassuring nods throughout the process made our time together extra special. The console legs are crooked, but its one-of-a-kind😄

  6. Psalm 118:24……..”This is the day the Lord has made, I will REJOICE and be glad in it.”

    Strong’s Concordance…Rejoice—–to spin around under the influence of any violent emotion…be glad, be joyful

  7. Reading the jokes as I sit in the waiting room waiting to see the surgeon after my sisters cornea transplant- I read the jokes to her and she laughed aloud!
    We needed that- truly laughter is a medicine.

  8. Truly the best medicine.
    Thank you for the reminder and the smile.
    Nothing beats a good belly laugh.
    Keep smiling.
