Some Morning Humor…

I needed a chuckle this morning and Benjamin just provided me with one. Don’t you just love the things that kids come out with?! I love the way they think, the way they view the world, their innocence.

Mom….why do killer whales eat seals?

Well, I guess they get hungry and need something to eat too.

Oh.        I like seals…                  Can’t they eat bananas?

This is probably one of those “had to be there” things but I thought I’d share as it brightened my day. :) It is always a good thing to take a few moments out of the business of life and enjoy a child or look at the world with their sense of wonder and joy. Take the time today to lie on the grass, watch a butterfly, eat a popsicle, blow some bubbles, smell the flowers. I’d love to hear back from you here if you did!

Updates & Links…

First of all an update on my mom and mother-in-law for those of you who are interested. My mother-in-law came came through her lumpectomy well. They removed a couple of lymph nodes as well but did not have to remove them all so we were quite grateful. The surgeon feels that it was very successful and after some radiation treatments, she will be healthy again.

My mom has been having a rough time. On Saturday she was hospitalized again due to complications of the Melanoma. Please continue to pray for her as she truly needs your prayers right now.

Our “little” family….Benjamin is feeling much better and over his Strep Throat. James is currently on antibiotics for Strep and Bronchitis and now Heather seems to be coming down with something as well. Yikes! If I take a while to get back to you, please bear with me…we have a lot going on right now!
