Need a laugh?

Yeah, well, so do I.

The 23-year-old daughter of my friend Stephanie from church was killed in a wreck last night. She leaves the most adorable 3-year-old daughter this side of Anna Marie at that age.

(I never met my friend's daughter, but she brought her granddaughter to church with her on a pretty regular basis.)

And, I got some reminders about Anna Marie's upcoming summer camp trip in the mail today, so I was reminded that MY KID IS GOING TO OKLAHOMA FOR A WEEK THIS SUMMER. WITHOUT ME.

And, well, there's just a lot of funky junk going on in the world in general, and in my life in particular.

So, in honor of Stephanie, I present you with a YouTube video we all watched during a break in choir practice about a month ago. (Stephanie is one of the altos, like I am, and we rely HEAVILY on her leadership of our section.)

Our music pastor referenced this video in conversation, and when we took a break, Stephanie went into his office and found it so we could all watch.

Enjoy. And I hope that you aren't in such need of a laugh today as I am - and that if you are, this little clip will provide it for you.

Stop. Hammer time!

I'm sorry to hear about your daughter's friend. And so young too. I'm always curious to know what those souls do who leave here after such a short stay.

They must be mighty important to the work on the other side of the veil to be called back home so quickly.

Thanks for the video clip. Do you know about the Potter Puppet Pals? I have a link to them at the bottom of today's post. Those little skits are hilarious! And occasionally irreverent so screen them before you share them with AM.

re: AM going to Oklahoma

. . .. hang in there! You'll be fine.

You can watch "The Office" and go to the gym. :)

I am so sorry to hear about this young woman. How awful for your friend and that sweet little girl.
Bless them all...
You just hug that little angel of will smile. I am sure of that. : )
