Let Us Have a Sense of Humor

Let us have a sense of humor in good times and in bad times,
in times of plenty and in times of want,
in times of sickness and in times of health,
in times of joy and in times of sorrow,
in times of failure and in times of triumph
in boom times and in bust times,
before the holidays and after them!

I'd like to give credit to the author of the photograph, but he/she is unknown to me
Just in case: what does DITTO mean?
"The same, me too, I agree"

  11. Some people are just so clever. You just have to smile.Sometimes I see clever little things and say " now why didn't I think of that".

    Once again, it's Christmas -
    that delightful time of year
    When hearts are filled with gratitude
    and homes are bright with cheer.

    When everyone's remembering
    good friends and loved ones too -
    So naturally, the warmest thoughts
    and wishes go to you.

    May your home be filled
    with happiness,
    your hearts with love,
    your days with joy -
    at Christmas and always.

    Merry Christmas and have a wonderful holiday,
    With love,
    Merry Christamas and a Happy new Year,
