Ever just wanted to pause life just for a moment and really and I mean really take it all in? I had one of those special 'can I just pause this and enjoy for a moment' moments yesterday as I was preparing our weekly Sunday Breakfast at Dinner meal after church. I heard laughing and playing from all three kids coming from the living room and couldn't believe my ears. I sneaked a peak from the dining room to see what they were doing and they were playing together very nicely. I couldn't believe it. It seems like it has been a long time since real genuine playing and laughter has filled our home and I am loving it. I don't ever want it to stop.
Mr. Jewels and I had a few good laughs over the weekend as well. We just about hopped into a minivan in a dark parking lot that wasn't ours, but looked a lot like ours. Another moment we had was when I was rubbing my eye and of course to get the full pleasure out of rubbing one's eye is that the mouth needs to be open as well. Mr. Jewels was making fun of me and I asked him if he opened his mouth while rubbing his eyes and his response was "I don't rub my eyes, not since I stopped drinking milk". I couldn't stop laughing at what he said. It did not make any sense to me, but it sure gave us a good laugh.
