Silliness that counts!

Sweet family are in town visiting from the States. Today Auntie introduced a song she used to sing when she was a teacher called, "Fried Ham". (*this video is not my child... just an adorable video illustrating the song)

...truly one of the most silly and random songs I have ever heard!!

Dancing around the kitchen, cleaning up after dinner, we sang, "Fried Ham, Fried Ham, Cheese and Bologna and Pretzels and Pickles and after the macaroni that we all had Fried Ham"

And, to add to the silliness of the song... we sang it over and over in different "versions". We sang it slowly, then again loudly, then again in a British accent, then again we sang the song with a squeaky "mouse" voice and on and on the singing went.

We would finish one version and my daughter would yell out, "Now what, Mommy?"

Uh... okay... like a... dog. And we would bark our way through the song.

"Now what, Mommy?!" Um.. like a baby. We would cry and whine our way through the Fried Ham song.

Silliness. Complete silliness.

And, a definite highlight of my entire week! I can't remember laughing that hard in a long time.

Father's gifts of music...

His sweet gifts of sister-in-laws. ...And, aunties. ...And, silly songs!

These are the moments I am thankful for!

These are the sweet, the holy, and the good-gifts for which I am grateful. I am counting and saying "thank-you" to my Father in Heaven.

I continue to count the blessings of God with others at www.aholyexperience.com. I am counting my way toward 1,000!! What fun! Come join us or pop over and read a few other lists... it is a good reminder of "all good and perfect gifts are from our Father above!"
