Just saying. . .

Sometimes there's just too much to say!

I must tell myself ten times a day, "that would be a good blog!"  But by the time I can sit down to write, the wonderful, imaginative, clever topic has left my mind altogether.

Not that I"m always clever and witty - but I have my moments.

I can also embarrass my kids pretty good, too!

Take for instance last week in Wal-Mart, a major social hub of Durango, CO - right behind the theatre and the rec center.  My children and I had been out all day.  Granted they are teen and pre-teen, however long days make them goofy.  Beats when they cried for hours!

We had been shopping for our Christmas boxes for Samaritan's Purse plus picking up some odds and ends.  On the candy aisle, one was pulling my basket in one direction while the other child (I say that with much love) was pulling it in the opposite.  I finally said, "Noooo!!  Why me?  Whhhhhyyyyy?" as I melted to the floor.  Still hanging on to the basket handle I began to push it down the aisle while duck-walking behind it.  My giggeling children sprinted down the row away from me.

Suddenly, from the corner of my eye, I see another basket.  I slow stand up straight and announce, "it's time to go."  Tears were flowing down my cheeks from laughter as I struggled to regain my composure.

I promise there was no one on that aisle when we started this tantrum.  But, hey, someone has a great story to tell at family dinner.

No real great lesson here.  OH, maybe one.

Go ahead and laugh!  Make a fool of yourself!  Enjoy each moment.
