Prime example: I had a terrible week. One of those weeks that was so busy and full of stuff that I couldn't even enjoy it. Makenna overheard me saying that to one of my friends. When I got off the phone, she looked at me and said, "That's not true. You had a great week. A lot of good stuff happened. We did good practicing for rodeo. Your mom and dad came to visit us twice. Degnan is roping. I am riding again. Josie is doing good at school. Chaney hasn't peed anywhere she isn't supposed to." You know what? She was right. All of that stuff was good but she made it sound great. She does this kind of thing all the time. Just last week, she called me from school. With a giggle in her voice she informed me that I needed to get to town with some new pants. It seems that she busted a move during gym and split her pants from front to back. She wasn't embarrassed. She wasn't put out. She just laughed at her self and kept going. Yesterday, she told me that was sure a good thing she split her pants and had to sit in the office because she was able to help the secretary remember where he principal went when they were looking for him.
I don't think they are many chocolate fountains in the world. I think God sprinkles them sparingly and waits to see if we notice. I am sure glad I have a chocolate fountain.
