of what she said was a little bit exaggerated. Believe me, I am not the 
only one in the family that exaggerates. 

However, it worked. It got her away from the heaviness of the insane
world around us to the hilarious world of great-grandsons. Nothing is 
funnier than a great-grandson. 

There is a song out in the world that says, “What this world needs is
love, sweet love.” I am not sure who sang it, but there is a message to 
that. I think it goes much further than that. If I was a songwriter or 
a singer (don't worry, I'm not going to sing) I would write a song 
called “What the world needs is laughter, hilarious laughter.” 

Love can be rather complicated but laughter opens all the floodgates of
real joy. 

After a half-hour of laughing about her great-grandson, my wife was back
to her normal, jolly self. Laughter makes all the difference in the 
world. You can tell a lot about a person by what it takes to make him 
or her laugh. 

Solomon understood this better than anyone when he wrote, “All the days
of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a 
continual feast” (Proverbs 15:15). And, “A merry heart doeth good like 
a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones” (Proverbs 17:22). 

If I were a doctor, this would be my prescription. Laugh three times,
and then call me in the morning with a new joke.
