Monday Musings

“The love of a family is life's greatest blessing”

A day spend with my niece, sister, or mother always reminds me of the truth of  this quote.  And today I got to spend the whole day with my sister and niece.  Combine all the great holidays together and that is how I feel when I get to spend a day them.  The day is always filled with laughter, love, happiness, and joy.  Of course there is always a funny moment or two which seems to leave us laughing our butts off.

Like today my dog decided to poo in the middle of my niece watering the flowers.  So my sister goes to get a bag so I can pick it up, and I'm left to make sure no one steps on the poo nuggets she is dropping.  My dog walks around aimlessly as she poos, it is the only way she can get it out. 

Anyway, my sister walked back a lot faster than I was ready for, and before I turned around to say watch out there is some over there....she had stepped in it!  Barefoot I might add.  Well that left us laughing hysterically!  (I know many would be grossed out and maybe we have an odd sense of humor but we laughed)

It is just moments like that which mean so much.  In our family we get each other, the littlest quirkest things can make us laugh when we are together.  And it's something I don't share with many others.  And so over the years I really have come to appreciate my family for who they are, what they mean to me, and those little moments we share together that not many others would understand.

If only people got to spend more time with their families.  Mondays always remind me of how little time we truly get to spend with those we love.  Monday through Friday always seems so filled with work, work and more work.  And by the time everyone is done working there isn't much time left for families. 

Anyway....as far as Mondays well this one was the bestest!
