I need to forget--and laugh

8. I need to forget--and laugh.

"I Love to Laugh" is a song from one of my favorite Disney movies Mary Poppins. If you know me you know I use humor a lot in my life. I truly love to laugh. Please help me forget my troubles if only for a few moments by talking about something other than my cancer. Cancer doesn't rule me or my family. It is part of me, but only part. I'm still a human who has other needs. I'm still a mom, a teacher, a coach, an athlete, a friend, a sister, a wife and a person. I have other things going on in my life. Why not ask about those things? I would be more than happy to talk about them. If you can't think of anything, just ask, "Let's talk about something other than cancer. What do you want to talk about?" I would even love to talk about you. But first find a good joke to tell me and let's laugh together!
