I have wanted to join in on Tamar’s Monday meme for a loooong time. However, my brain cells are annoyingly uncooperative at times. Oh well. What was I talking about? Oh! I remember! Tamar writes her blog Random-osity over at http://goodrandomfun.blogspot.com , and, as far as I can see, that is the way she lives her life -looking for the good, the random and the fun. So, here is my first offering.
The Good: Thanksgiving at darling stepdaughter’s house which included, among others, Ray (her dad and my husband-in white shirt), Ray’s first wife, Valerie -the one bending over, and her second husband, Andy-the one standing, and Andy’s father, Charles -far right with me hugging him. Apparently, when we blend a family, we REALLY blend it! And I cannot begin to tell you what love and healing has come out of this.
The Random: The snake that happened to cross the walkway just as the Pastor’s wife was leaving my house. I said, “Oh, look! A snake!” and she grabbed me and was literally trying to get her feet off the ground. Really. “Ok, now what?” would Not have been her reaction had she been eaten by said snake. (See top pix.)
The Fun: Same Thanksgiving dinner. Ray was trying to take a photo of the kids and me, and this is what he got. I am thoroughly enjoying my second childhood with them. This is a great blessing since my first childhood was not so hot.
