Gift of Laughter...

I grew up in a home that laughter was a very big part of life. My mom's dad was a prankster... you might say he saw things from a strange perspective. Grandpa Floyd loved us kids to pieces and he especially loved to see our reactions when he would pull a joke on us. So that is where I get my "unique" sense of humor from which in turn makes me laugh... at some of the most inopportune times might I add. I am so grateFUL for the gift of laughter... some days that is what gets me through... this God-given part of me that He knew would be a main-stay in my life. Hey, I enjoy a good cry, but if I can laugh 'til I cry now that is a true blessing!
I actually have a card to share with you today... this is a card from a set I did for an order... I saw a similar card on the web some place but I can't remember where... of course I changed it a little with my own touches. I found that iridescent ribbon at Michael's & a little diamond stickles for sure! Hope you like it... hope my customer liked it too!

We have been dealing with a little snow the last couple days here in northern Michigan... by little I mean 8-10 inches, so it is putting us in the Christmas spirit. In fact I finally got my tree up yesterday... I will try to post a picture later.

"These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full." -John 15:11

So for today I share with you the gift of laughter... hope it brightened your day a little.

with a grateFUL HEART, carin

We have a "little" snow down here in southwest Michigan too!
I loved reading about your grandpa. I grew up in the sane kind of household, with lots of practical jokes and teasing going on.

You made my heart overflow with joyful memories as I thought back to my own grandpa...the family card. Gosh I miss him so. How blessed we are to have been loved by the best.
