How She Loves Him

After my mom did her Parkinson’s exercise class online, the group had a social time. The leader asked how everyone celebrated Valentine’s day. My mom told them about the family getting together on Zoom and opening funny cards. One of the men said his wife of 44 years wrote a list of all the reasons […]

COVID Crazy

Today my sister shared a funny story with me that was in the newspaper. A woman who was normally mild-mannered found herself to be a germophobic lunatic. She described her experience needing to purchase a vehicle in the middle of a pandemic. It was hysterical. It was likely more hilarious because I could so identify […]

Christian Horse

When I was sitting outside this afternoon, I could hear my mom telling jokes to my dad in the house. Then they would laugh and laugh. At dinner, my mom tried to remember one that she wanted to tell to me. They both tried to remember the details, but couldn’t, so after dinner my mom […]

Named Second Chance

One of the men in my prayer group has been battling cancer and the effects of treatments for over a year now. He was hospitalized recently once again. We had our prayer group tonight and it was a pleasant surprise to see him participate. We looked at the upcoming Gospel for this Sunday. It tells […]

Humor Me

My mom’s friend came over today and brought along a couple pages of funny puns. There were several eye-rollers, but all of them made us laugh. Here is one of my favorites, “I changed my iPad’s name to Titanic. It’s syncing now.” Laughter really does feel good. I Found God today in laughter.

Earworms

My dad often comes to breakfast with a song in his head from many, many years ago in his youth. Today, one popped into my head that I learned as a child. It seemed to come out of nowhere. It was, “Mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy, a kid’ll […]

Environmental Entertainment

We returned home today after spending a few days in the beauty and serenity of the mountains. We never even turned on the TV. Instead, there was plenty to view just outside. The birds at the feeders were not as plentiful as usual, but we enjoyed identifying those who came for a visit. On the […]

Funny Memories

I was happy to get together with my sister today. As she was driving, she was thinking of all the fond memories she had at the cabin. One time, she was putting her son to bed and saw a bear on the deck. She yelled and my mom ran and got a pot and a […]

Back to Bartering

The other day I ordered groceries and went to pick them up in lieu of shopping in a crowded store, likely with people not respecting boundaries – particularly in preparation for the long weekend. I had planned on trying a new recipe for a cauliflower salad. However, in my groceries, there were 2 ingredients omitted […]

Purple Booties

Knowing that it was going to be very frigid weather here, my brother got some purple rubber booties to protect his dog’s paws. This morning he got her all layered up with a shirt, coat, and the new purple booties. Before they headed out, she walked all around lifting her feet way up off the […]
