"A happy family is but an earlier heaven."
-Sir John Bowring
This afternoon, as I was preparing to blow my straw paper toward the back of the car at SC, I was struck by a wave of gladness that we are the type of family who blows straw paper at each other. We are the type of family that makes funny faces at each other, and plays in the rain, and digs in the dirt, and spends endless time tickling. We are the type of family that dyes our hair semi-permanent pink or purple "just to see how it looks." To me, that means we stick together, no matter what (we blow straw paper at nice restaurants, too), and can take a break from the stress of life to just enjoy life with each other. I am thankful that I have been blessed with a family with a great collective sense of humor, and that we have such a good time just being together. I am thankful that God knows just what I need in my life, from the goofy-and-smart husband who indulges my football whims, right down to the beautiful little girl He has blessed us with.
