In “She Laughs” by Carolanne Miljavac, humor keeps us focused on what really matters, by rubbing off all our corners, dusting the cobwebs away. Laughter lifts us up. It is truly the best medicine. The ability to laugh is a gift of God. It helps us to lift up our faith and conquer fear. Laughter, the gift of a profound sense of humor, helps us to endure the hardest days. It helps us to persevere against all odds, even when everything is against us. Laughter gives us beauty when we are ashen and gray. “She laughs without fear of the future.” There is always hope for us at the end of the tunnel, as long as humor knocks at the door of our hearts, requesting to be allowed in.
Laughter fills us with a beautiful sense of esteem and self-worth. It makes us feel good about ourselves, and in spite of ourselves. The lady who laughs is dignified and victorious, empowered to succeed, against all the odds aligned against her. Laughter fills us with faith and shows fear the door. Faith keeps our hearts rooted in the truth that God is good all the time. A lady who laughs is at peace, even with an unknown future before her. She does not need to know the whys and wherefores. The gift of laughter is precious. Cherish it like a priceless jewel. Laughter embues us with hope. It gives hope a voice and speaks life into our spirits. Faith, laughter, humor and hope go hand in hand. Laughter fills us with hope and joy for the future God plans for us.
Losing her little niece to cancer taught Carolanne to surrender to God, and in doing so, she found herself and God. Carolanne’s authentic life reflects beauty for ashes. She pulls heartstrings with love and laughter. Her life’s purpose is to spread love and joy, honestly and truthfully. I highly recommend “She Laughs” for all those who opt to choose faith over fear.
