find the humor

Who knows Brian from Bonnywood Manor?

If you have not visited his blog, please do so – you will not be disappointed.

So, why am I mentioning Brian and his blog in this post?  Well you see, I leave comments on other’s blog posts and I truly appreciate the communication that takes place with these comments and the comments left on my blog posts.  I do not always leave a comment, but many times I do.  There was a post Brian published titled ’10 More Signs That Your Body Just Isn’t What It Used To Be’.

I read this post and could relate to it, so I left the following comment –

LOL, so very funny & true. I can relate to many of these Brian.

Brian responded with this comment –

Terry, I honestly hesitated before posting this, wondering if you might find it a bit offensive that I would be whining about such things when you have a much more challenging situation, but I knew in the end you would be fine with it. We’re both here to help others get through the bigs and the smalls by trying to find the humor and the shared humanity in both. Hope you’re doing well…

I responded with the following comment –

You are a good man, and please don’t ever hesitate on posting because of what I or others might think. I always find humor and laughter here on your blog – it helps me a great deal. Yes, we are here to help others – thanks friend – Happy Friday.

When visiting Brian’s blog, I laugh a lot, I mean where I am holding my belly and laughing.  I have to hold my belly right now because I continue to be a little sore from surgery.  But the laughing is good for me and is great medicine for recovery.

My friends, I am not offended by much and I appreciate we have a platform here to express our thoughts.

Brian’s sensitivity toward me and my struggles shows what a good man he is.  Thank you Brian and others for writing, posting and publishing your thoughts.  As Brian indicated in his response comment ‘We’re both here to help others get through the bigs and the smalls by trying to find the humor and the shared humanity in both.

I read many posts by other bloggers and find many different emotions from them.

And many of them I find the humor.

  6. Terry, as one who prides himself on having at least a minimal grasp of words, this post is initially leaving me speechless. But I’ll try to slug it out. I can’t adequately begin to tell you how much this means to me. It’s a wonderful, warming shaft of sunlight that lit up everything in me. In my quiet little room at my quiet little desk, when everyone else has tottered off to bed, I sit here and stir-fry my thoughts and add little ingredients here and there and try to come up with a recipe that has a decent taste for those who stumble my way and wish to sample something from the menu. To see you do this post, an unexpected but delightful thing, well, this is where the word-failure comes into play. If I were in Florida right now, you’d be in the middle of a chaste bear-hug that would physically convey what I can’t carve out of language right now. Thank you.

    P.S. Prepare yourself for an onslaught of “like” notifications as I work my way through the comments.

    • You are welcome Brian. As you remember, I wrote a comment on your blog, that I like you – you make me laugh (a lot), and there are few that do that. I appreciate your blog, your writing and you. Someday I will make it back your way, maybe we can do lunch? Happy Friday my friend. 🙂
