Laughter is the best medicine

We’ve all heard that laughter is the best medicine, but in the midst of battling cancer, sometimes it’s the hardest medicine to come by.

Luckily, Emily “Stitch” Love has always been good for a laugh or two…or ten.

Since coming off her daily steroid and earning a brief break in chemotherapy treatments, Emily has perked right up – offering goofy grins and ear-piercing laughter for family and friends.

Since all of us walking this road with Emily likely need some medicine of our own, we decided to share some of her laughter with all of you!

Be warned, what lies ahead is pure grin-inducing, laughter producing FUN (and at times may cause dizziness)…

To start us off, here’s Emily coming out of her “shell”:

Peek-a-BOO!

Here, she’s enjoying hanging out with her Aunts:

Grinning with Auntie Plum

That's as close to a smile as you get with a mouthful of chips!

A post wouldn’t be complete without a food picture, so here’s Emily grinning from ear to ear over her platter of snacks:

Now for some video! Emily asked to swing and Auntie Gaby valiantly volunteered to do the honors of being her safety belt. Below is a video captured by brother William (aka Pirate Guillermo). It’s a bit shaky because Will’s enthusiasm over entertaining his sister is just too much to contain!

And to close us out, a minute and a half of pure Stitch laughter.

We hope Emily’s laughter is infectious today. Despite the fear and worry in all our lives over so many concerns, we don’t want to miss out on the blessings God is giving us each new day. Take a moment, in honor of Emily, to share some laughter with your family or friends or a smile with a complete stranger! Let’s spread Emily’s cheer and show the world the joy Christ can put in each of our hearts no matter the challenges we face.
