Girls just want to have fun

When I hear that song....."Girls Just Want To Have Fun" Cyndi are never going to believe who I think of?!?!?!
My mother-in-law....she loved Cyndi Lauper.
Can you even believe that?!?
How much fun is that?!?!?

I hope that someday people can look back over my life and be able to say that I had a fun side. I love to laugh....I laugh a lot when I'm with the boys. There's nothing like laughter. Jess can make me laugh about as well as anybody. Pappy does this thing where he says "turn that frown upside down", and he tries to twist my mouth around...which aggravates me more than makes me laugh....ha! ha!
But, Pappy and I laugh a lot, too....especially when we're telling each other something about our boys!!! I remember when Jess was little and we would lay in bed and talk at night and would get tickled about of us would always say, "if you wake up Jess, you have to rock her"....
precious, sweet memories!!!

Do you ever wish you could be one of those people who just seem to laugh and cut up and find humor in everything??? I've decided that I am wwwaaayyy too serious most of the time. My dear friend told me when we first became friends....way back when she didn't know me nearly as well as she does now, so I'm not even gonna ask her what her opinion of me is now...but...she told me that I'm a deep thinker. I'm just kidding, because I know she loves me dearly!!! I had never thought of myself like that, but after much thought (after much deep thinking) and looking back over some of my posts and how serious I always am....well, maybe I do think deep. Now, I'm not saying that's a bad thing because I want to be like "Merrill Lynch" know those old commercials that say "When Merrill Lynch speaks, people listen!" I know the things that I write about I truly try to let God speak to my heart. I want to know that you all are touched by them, and you let me know that and you encourage me...but...I think God even has a sense of humor...because I had in my head (yes there is still some gray matter left up there)....that I would write about depression for today...okay, now I am actually laughing to myself...and I'm alone!!! So, you see that what I thought He wanted me to say....was nothing like what He wanted me to say....He wanted me to write about laughter....something in the total opposite direction!!!'s what the Bible has to say:
Proverbs 17:22 (KJV)
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
Here's the New Living Translation:
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.
And, besides....
So...this girl just wants to have fun today....
and hopefully many more fun years ahead!!!
In His Love...and with mine!!!
