Sharing A Laughter Break September 8, 2012 – Posted by denisemj
It was a rainy day and I noticed that the lady coming into the senior center had holes in both shoes. Her toes were sticking through the shoes!

It wasn’t really time for a break but I decided to take one so I could chat with this lady.

She told me that she does have other shoes but they are not as comfortable as the old ones. She also told me she was going blind and could barely see, and that she has a friend who took her in and helps care for her. Her children live in other states and can’t afford to visit.

She started sharing some jokes and we both laughed. Laughter is good for the soul!

When it was time for lunch, she said, "Thank You for taking the time to sit with me and listen to my jokes!"

We all need someone, sometimes, to just sit and listen and let us know we are important.

That was the best break I have taken in a long time!
