Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves;
they will have no end of fun.
Blessed are those who can tell a mountain from a molehill;
they will be saved a lot of bother.
Blessed are those who know how to relax
without needing an excuse.
Blessed are those who are sane enough
not to take themselves too seriously;
they will be valued by those about them.
Happy are you if you can appreciate a smile and forget a frown;
you will walk on the sunny side of the street.
Happy are you if you know how to hold your tongue and smile,
even when people interrupt and contradict you or tread on your toes;
blessed are you who recognize the Lord in all whom you meet,
for you have found true wisdom.
Joseph Folliet 1903 -1972
