a laughing place


The weekend was crazy, which is not that unusual.  But it was crazy good, which made it okay.  And these people made me laugh, which was perfect.  It made the running here and there and everywhere all worth it. I wish we could have stayed there on the beach and celebrated longer... but there were glasses to pick up...


You can only expect your husband to superglue his glasses together for so long... and really, he glued them together five months longer than I expected.  And he'd probably still be gluing the temples on if one hadn't fallen out of his grasp and into the storm drain!  This falls into the most-used category of our life- you have to laugh.  {Did I ever tell you about the other time glasses went down the drain?  Itty bitty pink prescription sunglasses, only a week old... right down the toilet.  My fault... and it was days before I could really laugh about it!}

Laughter... it is always a gift I am thankful for.

Love the watermelon "cake". We haven't sung that song in church in quite a while. Now I'm singing it while melting in the heat. It's a good diversion. Coughing? Hope you're better. And I want to hear all about Disney when you get back. Love and hugs.

I have never heard of As the Deer referred to as a hymn! That is interesting. I first heard As the Deer when I went to Baptist Bible College in Clarks Summit, PA for my first year of college. I thought it was so lovely. My very conservative church growing up did not sing that song ever. I think it is a classic worship song.

I am glad you let your husband get some new glasses!

Have a great week, Dawn!

Laughter makes it all worth while; always!
