Some days you just need to laugh. Today as I put out our fall decorations I was reminded of that. One day several years ago now when our son-in-law was still alive suffering with cancer my daughter and I made a run to Michaels craft store. As we left this is what we saw:
It made us laugh out loud. And as I remember that day, we needed to laugh. To my surprise that Christmas I opened a large but lightweight package marked To Mom, From Amber. Yep, you guessed it. She went back another day and got all the supplies and made me a silly pumpkin. I LOVE IT! It makes me laugh every year when I get it out. Is is a gorgeous, sophisticated craft? No! Was it super detailed and intricate? No! Is is something that makes me smile and/or laugh every single time I see it.
We all need to laugh, lighten up and realize the blessings around us.
