A Day With Kids Around, Is Quite The Day!

Mercy likes Papa's shoes :)

Mercy has this game, something along the lines of, "Bonk Papa on the head and laugh really hard!" :D

She is such a joy!

I went to check on the boys at nap time, and all I could find was Carter...
Then I figured out that Parker was under there too, with just a little breathing hole. =]
Funny thing is, that's how I often sleep. =)

I Peter 4:12

Beloved, think not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you. 13. But rejoice, insomuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that when his glory shall be reveled, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

Old Newspaper Clipping

I couldn't find a date, but I hope you enjoy! =] I sure did.

I was feeling quite philosophical this morning. I was lying in bed after sleeping in on my first day off in three months, and realized several remarkable things.

Of course the most logical thought I had was that lazy people why sleep a lot are the most philosophical people around. I suppose they just have more time to think than you or I.

I was in deep thought about that great philosopher Murphy. He is the one who said, "If anything can go wrong it will." (Murphy must have slept in a lot.) Ol' Murphy was my kind of guy. I was lying there reflecting on that great law of his when the realism became quite evident. It produced the following philosophies.

Why is it that when you want to sleep in, no one else wants you to sleep in? Does the whole world became jealous because they want to but can't? I wondered why my daughters tried extra hard to get me up this morning and on days I accidentally oversleep and am late for work, there is not a sound from them? I also wondered why the people next door, the ones who haven't mowed their yard in five weeks, make this their day to get up early and do it?

Why is it the only time your editor decides to call your home, to make sure your article makes the deadline, is when you are in deep sleep and can't remember your name, much less your article? And the last thought I had before I got up was: "How come philosophers always ask questions but never have an answer to their questions?

I don't know the answer to that one either, but I could probably think up another question or two this morning. Couldn't You? See? I told you so.
