Comical Discoveries

I love this quote here below and the book that it came from for that matter. I read it a couple of years ago while living in Provo. The book is entitled Invincible Louisa by Cornelia Meigs. It's a biography of Louisa May Alcott and it won the Newberry Medal in 1934. The book was simple, revealing, quick, and very enjoyable. As I read along, I was so fascinated by their lives and extreme circumstances of living. The quote/comment made in the book was stated in reference to the attitudes and living of the Alcott family during those times of hardship. It can be found on page 146. It is simply stated as thus:

There is no place where something comic cannot be discovered.

So true. So true. Don't some of the funniest moments happen in some of the most trying times? If you've ever seen the movie Steel Magnolias the phrase "Here. Hit Wheezer!" is a prime example of what I'm talking about. Do have a funny moment from a serious/trying time to share? Don't be shy. Say it via comment!

  1. Soon after my third son was born......besides being anxious and tired....I found the adjustment to be quite trial some...especially since my social support system is very includes my husband and pretty much it. I was sitting on the couch nursing the baby when my middle child tells me he's gone poop and needs a diaper change and at exactly the same time my oldest, who was sitting on the pot, called out to be wiped. And if you know anything about nursing.....everything else has to wait. That experience pretty much sums up my life then...and now I can laugh about it. Haven't had to buy diapers in a long time and it's very nice.
