Then after church we were sitting at the table eating lunch. Jon had to run down to school to take care of a situation. Tate, Gracie, Allie and Annabelle and I were eating our lunches silently. And then, breaking the silence was THE BEST SOUND I HAVE HEARD IN A WHILE! Allie and I burst into uncontrollable laughter. Annabelle was throwing macaroni on the innocent kitten lurking under her high chair and she was CRACKING HERSELF UP like I have never heard. She was in hysterics. AND, we were in hysterics. And like that, the heavy wet blanket of burdens was lifted. Well, hello there JOY!
Thank you, Lord, for all that you have blessed me with, and for even the little things like the hysterical laughter of a 1 year old sweet pea, that remind me of your truths.
