The Power of Words-my slice of life
We have had a brilliant Christmas and we aren't completely done yet. Christmas day was spent at home relaxing and eating Tex-Mex, then we picked up and drove to Austin for Christmas celebrations with my side of the fam. My little one LOVES time with her cousins and it is always so sweet to see them play together. Hubby's family will head this direction in a couple of days, and then our holidays will be well and truly complete.
While at my mom's house, I started making a list of funny things that were said. I am a collector of the weird & unique---words, objects, & some would say, people. I find that life is so very interesting, and I particularly enjoy the little oddities that make me smile & think.
Some of my favorites from the trip:
1, We do NOT lick things and throw them.
2. My breath smells like skunks and peaches.
3. I'm done. There's only so much booger I can take.
Yes, these are funny---but are also a reminder that words have power. I've spent time reading several posts from Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life today that speak of the writer's 2015 "one little word." I've thought about having my own OLW, and am feeling that perhaps 2016 is my year to begin the journey. Hmmm...now to ponder and choose my word!
Have a joyous New Year, y'all!
