Just prior to his death, Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles taught us how to laugh at life. In the October 2008 General Conference, Elder Wirthlin shared personal anecdotes of how he approached the challenges and awkward moments of life. Whether driving to the wrong state or having his daughter mistaking a husband for her date, Elder Wirthlin knew how to laugh at life where others might have cried in embarrassment or anger.
I haven't come close to laughing at all of life's trials, but when a trial comes I often think of Elder Wirthlin.
Because of the timing of this sermon, there is more weight to his words of "Come What May and Love It."
How have you learned to laugh at life and love it?
