The Name Of Your Game

Barb at A Chelsea Morning was the second blog I discovered and I read her first thing every morning! She is asking fellow bloggers what inspired their blog name. I have enjoyed reading everybody else's because I have always been curious too! Thanks Barb for asking this question!

I've always been the first one to laugh at a joke or see the humor in things when other people don't. I can make fun of myself easily and, in fact, I jump at the chance to do so. When I was picking out my blog name I thought of the time that I was in my bedroom and I fell. My first thought, of course, was Ouch! Then I started giggling because I realized I was going to be able to yell, "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up!" Does anybody remember that commercial? When my husband came to the rescue I could barely get the words out because I was laughing so hard. I told my sis-in-law about it and she, too, thought it was funny, but said, "Only you would be able to laugh through your tears."


My name probably describes me best. Sometimes the tears just flow when it hurts so bad, but I can always see the brighter side of things. Oh, that would have been a good name too~The Brighter Side of Things! Oh well. Where was I? Oh yeah, I do love to laugh even when I'm crying if that makes any sense!

It's not clever or exciting, but that's my story and I am sticking to it.

Amy~ Being able to LAUGH at ourselves and our predicaments is a GIFT from the Lord.

Saw in your profile that you own a Mustang restoration shop...my 10 year old daughter's dream job! She is a Mustang nut!

What a wonderful opptimistic way to live life. It is so refreshing and uplifting! Thanks for sharing and I'll come back.

You SHOULD stick to it - it's a great story. And being able to laugh through tears is a great quality to have, too. I have to tell you I thought maybe your title came from Steel Magnolias when Truvey said, "Laughter through tears ... that's my favorite emotion."

Yep. I remember those help I've fallen commercials. Believe it or not, I still see one from time to time.

Hi Amy,
This is my first visit to your blog. I am so happy to meet you. I can easily identify with you name. We know first hand the joy and sorrow of dealing with a difficult illness day in and day out. You are so right about laughter. It makes the heart light.

It's great that your blog describes you to a T. I like it (the attitude and the title).
