Hi and welcome to Good for a Laugh.

Are you as weary as I am of the doom and gloom that permeates our society today? Do you like to find the humor in everyday life situations? Do you like clean humor? Then join me as I poke fun at the mundane, the ridiculous, and most of all, at myself.

Sometimes I believe we take life too seriously. The constant bombardment of negativity wears us down, causes anxiety, stress, and depression.  If we can learn to take simple moments in our day-to-day life and look for the humor, it will lighten our mood and lift our spirits. Laughter is good for the body, as well as the soul. Studies have shown that people who laugh a lot generally feel better and tend to be in better health. Laughter releases endorphins, a natural chemical that decreases the feelings of stress, as well as reducing the level of stress hormones. Laughter produces a rush similar to a physical workout and changes our perceptive of situations that can trigger negative emotions.

Other People's Children CoverIf you are looking for a good laugh, in addition to my blog, pick up a copy of my novel, Other People’s Children, a humorous look at the life of a foster parent. It is loosely based on my husband’s and my ten years as foster parents. I would love your feedback in the form of a review on Amazon.

New Book:  Save the Date

I am excited to announce the release of my second novel, Save the Date, through Winged Publications. It is available on Amazon in print or kindle form. I will also have some copies available from the trunk of my car. 😊

If you read the book, I would greatly appreciate your posting a review on Amazon.

Synopsis:

What if you were given the chance to rekindle the flame with your first love? What happened to all those girls who were mean to you in school? Should Hannah Jensen take the chance of attending her high school reunion to find out?

Hannah hasn’t been back to her hometown in more than twenty years. Now, a widow, raising a teenaged daughter, she has the opportunity to go home for her twenty-fifth high school reunion. The invitation to the reunion stirs up a lot of old memories at the same time she is dealing with loneliness, the challenges of single-parenting a teenager, people who want to “set her up” with eligible men, her own insecurities, and her eccentric family.

The story interweaves the present with scenes from Hannah’s past and her fantasy of “happily ever after” with her high school boyfriend in a humorous and entertaining manner. Her feelings from being “shunned” by the cool kids resurface as she reflects back on her time as a teenager. There are several roadblocks on Hannah’s journey from a teenager through her present. The growing pains and amusing situations in which she finds herself are ones to which we all can relate. As she walks the path of self-discovery, she also discovers the most important life lesson of all–her relationship to God.
