Electric stand fan packing box - “Edison failed 10, 000 times before he made the electric light. Do not be discouraged if you fail a few times.”

In a restroom at IBM's Watson Center, a supervisor had placed a sign directly above the sink. It had a single word on it: "THINK!"

The next day, when he went to the restroom, he looked at the sign and right below, immediately above the soap dispenser, someone had carefully lettered another sign that which read: "THOAP!"

Humor can make a serious difference. In the all areas of life. A sense of humor helps us to cope with the difficult times, enjoy the good times and manage even the scariest times.

Case in point: Six-year-old Hannah. She was diagnosed with cancer, lost all her hair during chemotherapy and sometimes wore a wig. One day while shopping with her mother, Hannah donned a ball cap with a fake pony tail sewn into the back.

Before long, Hannah noticed a small boy staring at her. She tried to ignore him, but he followed her. Finally, she ripped off her cap revealing her shiny, hairless head and said emphatically, "This is what happens when you don't eat your vegetables."

I don't know what became of the boy, but as for Hannah, her sense of humor helped get her through some of life's scariest times. And it no doubt aids her healing process, too.

Like entertainer Bob Hope once said, "I've seen what a good laugh can do. It can transform tears into hope." And sometimes, a little more hope is all we need.
