Day 46: Story Time

A year or so ago I told my kids some stories from my life. They loved these stories and frequently ask me to retell them.

They asked for one of their favorites during dinner tonight. I must admit, sometimes I get tired of telling these stories over and over again. Tonight I really just wanted to eat dinner. So, I informed them that their daddy also had some exciting stories from his youth.

HH then began to tell them how he earned different scars on his body from various adventures and mishaps.

Then Sweet P remembered some of her exciting stories and shared a couple of those.

Little M didn't want to be left out and proceeded to tell us some very entertaining (very made up) stories from his life.

It was so fun listening to them juice up their stories with suspenseful voices and facial expressions. And it was a wonderful Joyful Moment shared together. With plenty of laughter for HH and I as we listened to their stories and watched their faces as they listened to HH's stories.

I can't wait to do it again, only this time I'll have the video camera ready!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments worthy of be retold again and again!

I just love it when we go no where on a Saturday. This week was a killer in the demands department..and it was nice to just no step out the front door before 7am for once.

We had a joyful time eating dinner at a friend's. The conversation afterward was full of wisdom and advice that I think will be very valuable. I also found joy in a phone call from my husband at what I thought was 7:45 a.m., informing me that is was actually 8:45 a.m. And our church begins at 9 a.m.
