my family is weird!
We probably seem like a nice, normal, quiet family out there in the public's eye. If I had a plaque to give my family, this would be it. . .
But the truth of it is. . .we are nice but normal. . .well. . .
When my boys were little, #1 son would always laugh as we were with our extended family, saying, "We are so weird." His grandmother, my mother, would say through her laughter, "I'm sorry, our family just has the weird gene and you inherited it."
Those were the good ol' days. . .lots of silliness, laughter, and weirdness all around.
Life can throw a curve ball and hit you right in the gut. For a time I thought that curve ball took away the silliness and laughter and weirdness, but as God would have it, He brought healing to some of our hearts.
There is still a pocket full of sadness in there, but the funnies have come back and I'm glad!
If you don't believe me, just take a look. . .
No Wendy's employee would dress up as Wendy except MY son
Notice my mother is holding a leaf. You ask why? I. Don't. Know!
And we can't make faces for long. . .
I giggle more with her than anyone:)
Wish she wasn't over 700 miles away!!!
But you know what? The silliness carries over the phone lines. Just about every time my mother and I talk on the phone, the sillies will come out and we have at least one good laugh before it's time to hang up.
Thank you Father for giving us laughter, silliness, and goofyness in spite of whatever is going on around us. It is such a gift to laugh and let loose. And I pray that next time my husband shows his silliness, I am the one holding the camera. (He is always holding the camera and we miss his goofyness on film). I know you will take care of that Lord, because you are always in the details and you desire to give us the desires of our heart. I know you smile when we all smile. And so I fully expect a pic of hubby in the midst of his silliness too in the photo album soon:)
Thank you Father for all the giggles, smiles, and laughter. . .and even that weird gene.
And may NO ONE see through our windows when we are dancin' around like fools!
In Jesus Name
