Today started off pretty early for our family. Both boys woke up before 7 and they were so whiny. I just don’t understand why children just don’t sleep when they are sleepy. In about ten years, I am not going to be able to drag them out of the bed at 7:00 a.m.
Well, since we were up so early, Jim was a little bit ill. After breakfast I looked at our calendar and saw that today is his brother Dan’s birthday. I turned to Jim and said, “Hey, It’s Dan’s Birthday.” Jim in his best early morning humor typed his very funny email to Dan.
“For a special gift on your birthday, I decided NOT to call you at 6:45 this morning when the boys woke up. I thought about you again at 7:30 and decided I would give you another gift and wait to call. Now, it is after 8:30 and, once again, I’m showering you with love and appreciation as I am still waiting to call you and wish you a Happy Birthday. So, know that you are thought of and that (even though you might not realize it) you have received multiple gifts from me today!!!
Love you bro,
This may not be as funny to you as it is to me, but I lived through this morning and I am glad that we can still find humor in the midst of turmoil.
