You Tube Tuesday - Laughter Therapy

Laugh Me Tall
by Rachel Hoyt

A laugh a day
To keep pain away?
Sometimes I need more
But it isn't really a chore.
Just a laugh, or two, or three, or four,
And I'm standing taller than I've stood before.

Josh from "Its Tiger Time" invented You Tube Tuesday so we could each share one video a week which we found to be fun, inspiring or otherwise noteworthy. If you choose to participate, don't forget to leave your links in my comments section (so I can come visit you) and on Josh's page (so you can be part of the contest). I hope you enjoyed this week's selection!
