Making People Happy

Depression has been on my mind lately. Not because I'm depressed, but because I know some of you are and I've read your posts and I feel for you and am praying for you that something will cross your path and make you happy and put a smile on your face. I know that isn't always easy. I remember a Bugs Bunny cartoon where he was tasked with making the owner of the mansion laugh. Everyone who didn't make him laugh died. Well Bugs set to work and when he thought all was lost, something he said or did quite unexpectedly caused the person to laugh uncontrollably. We never know what in life is going to lift our spirits and make us smile or laugh, but I thought I would share this song with you. It's been on my mind this morning and I thought and hoped it would put a smile on your face. For you young people you might never have heard of Jimmy Durante, but he was a great actor and also sang a few songs too. This is one of them. If the link doesn't pop like I hope it will and most of them haven't, I hope you will copy and paste it to the address bar and enjoy Make Someone Happy. Thanks for reading and I hope it put a smile on your face.

It's so tough dealing with it that I truly pray from day to day that it gets better.

@jaboUK He's a lot of people's favorites. He played a clown in the movie Jumbo and was super good in it with making people laugh.

There's people going through tough times all over the world. We never know what one could be going through. Feeling sad from time to time isn't considered depression but there's people who were diagnosed as having depression and they really need support. One of my sons was diagnosed but with Faith, God, and Jesus. He is so much better now and he found something that he really enjoys. Be blessed everyone and remember to be kind.

that's a OLD one but it's a good one too we all do what we can to make others happy but sometimes it takes a lot for them to take the action to be happy in their lives. then sometimes all it takes a good word of I'm here for you to make them happy.

@Drosophila I've never had that combination. I've had a poached egg, and smoked salmon, not together and never had black peppers.

Many people these days are suffering from some form of depression. Lack of money is one major cause of depression, and loneliness is another major cause of depression.

I agree. That's why it's important to make people happy if we can. Just a smile for a few minutes can be worth a lifetime.

I have met some people going through depression over here too. It is not as easy to deal with as we all think it to be. I hope they fight it off though... Thanks for the link....

It isn't easy. The few times I've been depressed enough to wonder when I'm going to pull out of it, lets me know it's serious. I'm glad you enjoyed the link.

I want to say it sounds familiar, but I'm not 100% sure. I almost feel like I've heard pieces of it before. It's a nice song to hear tonight. Thank you for sharing it with us. :)

Laughter really is the best medicine. Whenever I'd get down, Britt would do his best to make me laugh. And sometimes I'd get angry at him because I didn't feel like laughing. But he'd keep trying and eventually he'd get a laugh out of me and it really would make a difference. So these days, when I'm really down, I find something to watch to try and lighten things up. And yes, I remember Jimmy Durante! Always saying goodnight to Mrs Calabash, wherever she was! lol

What a lovely topic. It's a shame that there are so many suffering with so many illnesses. My parents loved Jimmy Durante, and I know that song so well. What a blast from the past!

sometimes I spend time on icanhazcheeseburgers they have funny cat and dog photos. Also there is a reddit threaded called eye bleach, all cute and sweet things that help one to forget whatever horror they just saw but yes, the depression is strong many days.

I have also noticed a few people who seem more depressed than usual. Jimmy Durante was a good comic and could make lots of people laugh.

So kind of you to bring a bit of happy into the lives of those who may be feeling down. For those with major clinical depression, the climb out is a mighty struggle that requires the help of the pros.
