Small Talk


Have you ever been paid a "backwards" compliment and found it so very hard not to laugh at the person giving you the compliment? Last night's conversation with Nathan was one of those moments in a parents life when biting your tongue was necessary. While at my desk he came over to make small talk (literally as it's hard to understand most of his language) ... but he used his best "doggy-ism" with me, patted my head and lovingly looked into my eyes while saying, "Good Dog"! Of course, I was excited to be able to understand his speech ... but then it hit me what he was saying and I nearly rolled off my chair ... but quickly regained my best motherly composure and thanked him for the "compliment" ;)

Quote of the day: "Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. and let us not neglect our meeting together ..." Hebrews 10:25
