I'm looking forward to my "LAUGH THERAPY" at 4pm.
Here in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
I laughed so hard at his description of his "Family" Holiday.The man is undeniably Witty & Honest. I know when he's on the show, the laughter is multiplied by 1,000. I LOVED IT !!!
AMAZING WHAT FUNNY CAN DO...
You asked-so I'm answering:
*Do I know someone who needs a reliable car?
YES, that would be my Father who helps me so much & just lost his job.
*Do I know someone in need?
YES, my best friend Robin who has given & given & given & is now needing a BIG giveback for basic needs as she's doing ALL she can to re-build her life.
*Am I worried about gifts?
YES, I wish to bless my Mother & my Father & give back to thenumerous "heartbeats" that have given to me so generously.
*Do I know someone who has shown a MAJOR act of KINDNESS?
YES. That would be everyone who has "been there" for me during6 years of epilepsy & other health challenges...bringing food, helping w/DRs appts, cleaning, making me laugh & giving me hope in my toughestmoments.
*** There is so much kindness that goes UN-noticed or gets forgotten about. I wish for that NOT to happen in my life & thelives of those I love *** ~ Happy Christmas Ellen To You & Yours ~
= Gerard Butler =YES, I will be WATCHING him.
It's getting hot in here.
An Update:I'VE HAD DOCTOR APPTS TO GO TO IN THE LAST WEEK. MY DAD IS MY CAREGIVER AS I HAVE EPILEPSY & AM UNABLE TO LIVE ALONE. HE HAS BEEN TAKING THE BUS, WALKING & RUNNING (sometimes)TO GET THE BASIC THINGS DONE...YESTERDAY, HE PAID A TAXI TO GET ME TO MY APPT ON TIME. THE DRIVERS NAME RHYMED WITH "BUSTIN BEAVER". IT MADE ME LAUGH-MY DAD TOO. *We need a car Ellen*Not for trips to the mall or vacations but to get to the grocery store, get to my Dr appts & so my Dad can get to work.That's It.
so once again I submit my awesome poem to you:
