I sent Ella in

As South Africans we sure know how to laugh about ourselves. Bringing humour into our trying lives makes life a little easier. And things are tough here in South Africa. The Springboks are out of the Rugby World Cup due to a useless coach who had no game plan. The economy is on a downward spiral. Violent crime is becoming an everyday occurrence as if it is simply part of life. Our government are not for the people but themselves only. And I am not getting much sleep lately.

Oh well at least Oscar got to go home. I had to send Ella into the ladies restrooms to put up these signs to warn the ladies that Oscar is out on bail. We actually need to change the "Occupied" signs to "Don’t Shoot!"

The author Alysha Speer wrote once,
"Laugh, even when you feel too sick or too worn out or tired.
Smile, even when you're trying not to cry and the tears are blurring your vision.
Sing, even when people stare at you and tell you your voice is crappy.
Trust, even when your heart begs you not to.
Twirl, even when your mind makes no sense of what you see.
Frolick, even when you are made fun of.
Kiss, even when others are watching.
Sleep, even when you're afraid of what the dreams might bring.
Run, even when it feels like you can't run any more."

"And, always, remember, even when the memories pinch your heart. Because the pain of all your experience is what makes you the person you are now. And without your experience - you are an empty page, a blank notebook, a missing lyric. What makes you brave is your willingness to live through your terrible life and hold your head up high the next day. So don't live life in fear. Because you are stronger now, after all the crap has happened, than you ever were back before it started."

So laugh until your belly hurts and just a little bit more!
