Overheard at a Stake Conference:
"Angels will go before you on your right hand and your left."
Overheard at a writing critique group:
"I'm thriving in my new energy." When this statement was met with blank stares, the person added, "That's code for 'I'm having a bad day.'"
A little girl talking to her mother. Her mother was holding a brand new baby:
"Momma, you are not a good sharer."
Overheard in a restaurant:
“I don’t know how she continues to live. She talks so much she never takes a breath."
In a parking lot—enjoying a relationship with a disease, I guess:
“I’m doing so well with my diarrhea.”
A sign seen in a store:
If you want breakfast in bed sleep in the kitchen.
On a televised training conference:
Perfect love of the Lord casteth out fear.
Two young mother’s talking:
“My kids have been violent since school let out.”
A little boy talking a mile a minute to his mother:
“Today, on the trampoline we played fetch with raisins.”
Husband, talking to his wife about her gallivanting--with a friend--for several hours when she said it would be just ONE hour!
"You two can't see each other anymore. You're a bad influence on each other. You're supposed to lift each other up. Maybe you two should be grounded."
Then there was much laughter.
Talking to a friend on the phone when she said:
“I’ve got to go now. My phone’s hot.”
And so, it goes. At this time in my life I'm too old to be grounded, I might or might not be thriving in my new energy, and my phone might be the only hot thing about me. But, on the more optimistic side, I have angels going before me on my right hand and my left. What more could anyone ask?
