An Awesome Smoothie and a Reluctant Storyteller

Today's favorite moments included . . .

. . . husband hugs.

. . . eating sweet potato casserole.  That stuff is so yummy.

. . . playing with the kids.

. . . taking a nap.

. . . Phillip making a delicious smoothie at dinner time.  It was so well-received that he had to make a second batch.

And another thing . . .

. . . is there anything that you love doing but hate starting? Whenever we get in the car, Joy asks me to tell a story. I tend to enjoy the stories while I’m telling them, but I hate thinking them up. Sometimes the job is fairly easy—Joy just asks me to relate a specific scripture story, or part of a movie—but other times she asks me to make up a story about a character or two, and that’s challenge for me. I try to say yes most of the time because I want to support my daughter, and I really do enjoy the stories once I start telling them, but I also strictly enforce my “only tell stories in the car” rule because I don’t want to spend my entire life making up new tales, especially when I need a substantial part of my brain to work on something else.
