...still the best medicine. working in foster care brings with it some of the most horrific stories...abuse, neglect, abandonment, loss, mental illness...there are moments of joy when children are reunited with parents who've made positive changes or when children are adopted...but overall, the work is emotionally challenging to say the least.
so to remedy the weight of the stories safely locked in my heart for the kids' sake, i look for humor as often as possible. laughing reduces stress, releases endorphins, makes me smile, lightens the mood. grandma was right, it is good medicine.

or how about a little:
happy wednesday. have a laugh.
