Laughing at Me

This afternoon I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things and while I was in the store I noticed two young couples pushing a cart with a baby in it.  I just love babies so as I passed I peeked into the cart hoping to catch a glimpse of the baby.

I could just barely see the top of the baby’s teeny tiny little head sticking out from under the blankets. “Awww! how sweet, a brand new one!” I said. They all looked at me oddly and nobody said anything back to me. Feeling a little bit uncomfortable I just kept moving on down the aisle hoping they didn’t think I was some sort of baby-napper who had plans of stealing their baby.

When I reached the end of the aisle I heard them all burst out laughing.

Suddenly I had a feeling they were laughing at me.

As I continued down the next aisle I could still hear them laughing in the aisle next to me.

Soooo….  as you know I just couldn’t help myself from eavesdropping on their conversation. After all, if they were laughing at me I needed to know what is was they were laughing about.

It wasn’t long before I knew the answer….

The baby wasn’t real!

Yep you guessed it! … The teeny tiny little baby head I’d seen sticking out from under the blanket just so happened to be one of those learning dolls that they use in school to teach teenagers what it’s like to be a parent.

For a moment I felt embarrassed but then suddenly I couldn’t help but laugh at me too 🙂 🙂 🙂

Silly me 😀

I usually consider it a pretty good day if I can make just one person laugh each day.  Today I made 4 people laugh.

Five if I count myself.

I hope it made you laugh too 😀

Have a great day,

Beautiful Little People Who Will Make You Smile

Here are some of the beautiful little people I met last week while on a mission trip in Haiti.  These children live in a little village called Babaco on the edge of a dried up river bed.  We were told that after a hurricane the river just went away.  We actually drove down the middle of the river bed to get to their church/school. The smiling faces and laughter of these children brought so much joy to my heart and I know that these pictures will make you smile too 🙂

He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Mark 10:14

Have a wonderful day!
