You need a respite.
Watch this 7 1/2 minute video and laugh while Mary Maxwell delivers the invocation at the 2009 Home Instead annual convention.
“How can this woman be funny?” you ask.
“I don’t have time for this,” you mutter as she gives the opening prayer.
Stick around. Her deadpan delivery and her one-liners such as, “This is the first time I’ve ever been old… it just sort of crept up on me” get better and better.
Laughter is indeed the best Rx.
Thanks to caregivers, Beth Hurzeler and Sandy Mason, for bringing this to my attention.
