I loved to hear the anecdotes from the late President Gordon B. Hinckley; he knew how to balance the serious with having a sense of good humor.
We need to have a little humor in our lives. We better take seriously that which should be taken seriously, but at the same time we can bring in a touch of humor now and again. If the time ever comes when we can't smile at ourselves, it will be a sad time.
