Shadows That Bring A Smile!

Here's a motto, just your fit--Laugh a little bit.
When you think you're trouble hit,
Laugh a little bit.
Look misfortune in the face.
Brave the beldam's rude grimace;
Ten to one 'twill yield its place,
If you have the wit and grit
Just to laugh a little bit.
Keep your face with sunshine lit,
Laugh a little bit.
All the shadows off will flit,
If you have the grit and wit
Just to laugh a little bit.
Cherish this as sacred writ--Laugh a little bit.
Keep it with you, sample it,Laugh a little bit.
Little ills will sure betide you,
Fortune may not sit beside you,
Men may mock and fame deride you,
But you'll mind them not a whit
If you laugh a little bit.

~Edmund Vance Cooke


We have some good times at The Summer Kitchen, most of the times it is because of laughter! We saw this shadow our "laugh" sign was casting in the store & thought of something else that makes us smile.....Shadow Shot Sunday, with our friends all over the world!

Come on along with us and see all of the other shadows posted on Hey Harriet - and see why we look forward every week to our Shadow fix!

Your shadows always bring a smile! Especially this one! Love that sign!!! Your shop must be the most fun place to visit. I wish it wasn't so far away so I could hang out there. I could be the coffee girl :) Have a wonderful week!

Laughter is what it's all about!!!

Shadowy laugh sign
holds court on kitchen table—
mirth in the morning.

Thanks for reminding us that word.

Easy to forget though too easy to do.
That makes a big difference, right? Just laugh awhile makes hundreds of muscles in our face more healthy.

Great job ladies.

Nice reminder. At first I thought you were going to quote the lyrics to the song "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life" from Monty Python's "Life of Brian". That always makes me laugh too!
