Things have been crazier than usual at my house of late. With so many sick kids it was inevitable that I get it too. I took my sickness with me to a women’s retreat, left the retreat early to go to a family reunion, came home and crash cleaned the house until I fell into bed. Then I had family staying with me for several days. I even managed to make someone mad in the middle of all this which did not help my stress level one bit. I haven’t had a chance to sit down and write, but I plan to soon when I get a chance.
This week I was reminded of our visit last year when my parents came by. My parents were leaving and we realized that we hadn’t taken any pictures. I had just gotten out of bed and thrown some clothes on so that I could say goodbye. Mom insisted on some pictures. “I haven’t even brushed my hair,” I protested, but to no avail. Someone took the picture. My mom looked at the result and said:
“Esther, you’re so photogenic you look better in the picture than you do in real life!” Thanks Mom!
Finding things to laugh about makes my home sing!
