I love to laugh, don't you? Proverbs 17:22 says that "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine..." and I really believe that is true. When you keep a smile on your face, and laughter in your mouth, you somehow seem to be a happier person. I don't like taking medicine either, so I would rather LAUGH. I don't even have to go see a doctor to get a prescription either. I'd get sick too if I was grumpy all the time.
I made my card with some October Afternoon, Simple Stories, ribbons, and a Making Memories rub-on for the sentiment. I kept it pretty simple. There's a young girl in my 3rd period English class who has been going through a rough time (family problems, divorce, etc.) and she got into a little bit of trouble on Thursday for laughing in class. It was really hard for me to get on her about being loud, because the sound of her laughter was such a joy to my ears. I am going to give her this card on Monday. While she has to follow the rules, I do want to encourage her to continue to giggle and laugh because that's something that I know will bring her a lot of happiness as she goes through this rough time.
I'm going to share this card in some challenges that I love. I don't get to create cards very often during the school year, but when I do I really like to enter them in some challenges, and these are a few of my favorites.
