We each travel this globe on our own quest. As we travel, we cross paths of fellow travelers who touch our lives. As some leave us, we shake our heads and wonder why they were placed into our paths. With others, the journey together has been rich and rewarding and each are better for having been a so-journer.

May each be blessed with finding persons who will help them on their journey so that they reach their goals.

    Thank you for reading my Friday Happy Hour blog, "Walking A Thin Line".

    Eugene Bertin once said, "There is a purifying power in laughter. It is truth in palatable form. It is instant vacation. Seeing the comical side of many situations makes life a great deal easier. It's like riding through life on sensitive springs that ease every jolt."

    Yes, I wholeheartedly agree that laughter is one of the best forms of medicine. So, I hope you'll join me once again for some more laughter and giggles as we take a lighter look at life later today at the next Friday Happy Hour.
