The 1 Minute laugh

Husband and wife are on the 9th green when suddenly she collapses from a heart attack. "Help me dear," she groans to her husband.

The husband calls 000 on his cell phone, talks for a few minutes, picks up his putter, and lines up his putt.

His wife raises her head off the green and stares at him. "I'm dying here and you are putting?"

"Don't worry dear, says the husband calmly, they found a doctor on the second hole and he's coming to help you.

"Well how long will it take for him to get here?" she asks feebly.

"No time at all." says her husband. "Everybody's already agreed to let him play through.

Kids are funny!

"Okay Travis," said the teacher. "What comes after three?" "Four," answered Travis.

"Good," she continued. "What comes after six?" "Seven," was the reply.

How can families achieve happiness?

Humor and laughter are important ingredients of happy and healthy family life.

Don't take yourself too seriously. It is easy to distort things. So take a step back and take a less serious view of things.

Resolve to look for a bit of humor even when times are a bit tough. In tough times, it is even more urgent to find humor. A good laugh can help chase away stress.

Humor and laughter can also keep your marriage and family together when things become unglued.

Look for the humor around you. People are funny! Everyday life is full of humorous situations and events.

Discover what makes your spouse and children laugh and find ways to develop and nurture this.

Learn to poke fun at one another in a light-hearted, healthy, affirming and non-derogatory way.

In a good relationship and in the proper context, some good- natured 'teasing' can actually increase good feelings among family members. Just make sure that one person's joke doesn't become the other person's sore point.
