Mom knows best

My mom has this saying that she pulls out from time to time. "Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying." When I was younger I rolled my eyes and questioned how that made any sense. As I have gotten older, I have come to realize how true it is. Lately, I have been thinking about that a lot. Granted, I cry too much enough as it is, but sometimes laughing is the approriate reaction.

Yesterday I told my husband we should go out and get a lottery ticket. Why? Because a couple months ago he said that things could only go up from where we were. "As least they can't get worse," he said. (I know, I know. Worst thing to say, ever!) But, things got worse. So, they can only go up from here. Our luck has to change. Hence, the reason I thought we should buy a lottery ticket.

My husband's response? Laughter. Nothing but laughter. Followed by me cracking up.

Sometimes you just have to laugh to keep from crying.
