Please contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.

Is your bucket full or empty? Humor is an incredibly powerful tool that can brighten up even the gloomiest of days. Whether you’re feeling down and need a pick-me-up or want to bring some laughter into someone else’s life, there’s no denying the power of a little bit of humor. Of course, it’s important to remember that timing and appropriateness are key when it comes to using humor – as my dad always said, there’s a time and place for everything.

If humor is used correctly, it can be a fantastic way to create a positive atmosphere and improve your own mood as well as those around you. As my mom used to say, we have the choice between laughing and crying – so why not choose laughter? In my experience, taking life seriously but still finding reasons to laugh has been one of the best ways to stay happy and healthy. So go ahead – embrace your sense of humor! ~ Bill Greguska

What Does It Mean To Have A Sense Of Humor?

A good sense of humor makes life so much better! NeedEncouioragement.com

Always have one good clean joke available to share with others. Having a sense of humor makes a great icebreaker!

There is a difference between being funny and having a sense of humor. Both are very important, and it’s often usually challenging to have one without the other—but it’s not impossible.


  • I have always felt that being funny means expressing humor with a witty pun or a good joke that is characteristically well-timed. You do need to have a sense of humor to be funny.


  • I believe that having a sense of humor means laughing at or seeing the humor in life’s everyday ups and downs. Although to have a sense of humor, you do not need to be funny.


  • It is beautiful to have a sense of humor; I have had one since I was a little boy. But trying to be funny without a sense of humor is often seen as inappropriate and sarcastic and can quickly turn people off. Warning, be careful of how you use your sense of humor.

A Song Of Humor By Tim Hawkins




Do twins ever realize that one of them is unplanned?

Why is the letter W, in English, called double U? Shouldn’t it be called double V?

Maybe oxygen is slowly killing you; it just takes 75-100 years to work fully.
Every time you clean something, you make something else dirty.
The word “swims” upside-down and backward is still “swims.”
One hundred years ago, everyone owned a horse, and only the rich had cars. Today everyone has cars and only the rich own horses.
If a poison use-by date expires, is it more poisonous, or is it no longer poisonous?
At a movie theater, which armrest is yours?
If people evolved from monkeys, why are monkeys still around?
Why is there a ‘D’ in the word fridge but not in the word refrigerator?
Who knew what time it was when the first clock was made?
Why does the word “Funeral” start with the word FUN?
Why isn’t a fireman called a waterman?
How come Lipstick doesn’t do what it says?
If money doesn’t grow on trees, how come banks have branches?
If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?
How do you ever get off of a non-stop flight?
Why are goods sent by a ship called CARGO and those sent by truck SHIPMENT?
Why is it called “Rush Hour” when traffic moves at its slowest then?
How come noses run and feet smell? Were you built upside down??
Why do they call it a TV “set” when only one exists?




Humor can increase how much you can get done and make it more enjoyable to be around you. Sharing laughter is an excellent way to bond with others, make adverse situations more bearable, and even make tedious tasks much less annoying or enjoyable. Do you realize that humor can often be the oil that makes relationships run smoother?

Most everyone enjoys laughing; bottom line, it is excellent for your overall health and well-being. You can add to this list and understand laughter’s benefits! My Mom taught me the benefits of laughter! My Mom gave me some advice during some hard times in my life. I will never forget it. She told me I had a choice of how to look at things. I could either deal with the situation and laugh about it or let it get me down and end up crying about it.

The bottom line, sometimes we have a choice, as my mom said, to laugh about it or cry about it. ~ Bill Greguska
