Just random thoughts about the craziness that pops into my head. I mean I hang out with kids all day, there is bound to be some craziness somewhere.
You're going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it's always their actions you should judge them by. It's actions, not words, that matter. Nicholas Sparks - The Rescue

Family Christmas Parties
Don’t you just love them?
Here I was sitting at my aunt’s house waiting on the party to start. My sister's somehow managed to weasel their way out of this event (one was working, one left early, the other may not have even known). Relatives I see once a year are coming in and out the door with their kiddos. (I unfortunately am missing mine as they are MIA this week).
Everyone is catching up and, thanks to the invention of facebook this doesn’t take long. The conversation takes a turn that I wasn’t expecting….couponing.Really? At our Christmas party.As I text my BFF to kill me and save me from myself the day turns to prayer and food and the couponing stories are over. I am now thinking this is something I should look into though.
But….the conversation after dinner takes another unsuspecting turn. My parents, along with the other more mature adults in the room, start talking about all those people who they know who have had heart attacks, lost limbs, or met Jesus this past year. I start giggling uncontrollably and my cousin, who I love dearly looks at me and tells me to hush. I reply that I can’t as I am picturing us in 20 to 30 years having the same kinds of conversations as they are while my kids and grandkids sit back and laugh at us.
What a great circle of life. JChristmas parties…..do you have some great stories?
