I am so happy to host my friend, Ane Mulligan, again to share with you something she is an expert in—laughter! One of the best gifts we can give!I love to laugh. Even more, I love to make people laugh. The Bible tells us a merry heart is good medicine, Prov 17:22. And a merry heart comes from laughing.
Laughing and smiling use fewer muscles than frowning. Laugh lines are softer than frown lines.
From HelpGuid.org: Humor is infectious. The sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle, or sneeze. When laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy. Laughter also triggers healthy physical changes in the body.
The Mayo Clinic tells us: When it comes to relieving stress, more giggles and guffaws are just what the doctor ordered.
So, for the sake of your readers’ health, I’m offering the Gift of Laughter as the perfect Christmas gift!
With a friend like Claire, you’ll need a gurney, a mop, and a guardian angel.
Everybody in the small town of Chapel Springs, Georgia, knows best friends Claire and Patsy. It’s impossible not to, what with Claire’s zany antics and Patsy’s self-appointed mission to keep her friend out of trouble. And trouble abounds. Chapel Springs has grown dilapidated and the tourist trade has slackened. With their livelihoods threatened, they join forces to revitalize the town. No one could have guessed the real issue needing restoration is their marriages. Claire and Patsy embark on a mission of mishaps and miscommunication, determined to restore warmth to Chapel Springs —and their lives.
