One of My Many Talents...

is being able to burp so loud it shows on the Richter scale. Thankfully, that is not what this post is about. It's about another special talent of mine. Or maybe I should call it a fun quirk. Caleb, well, he just calls it torture.

I love to make up songs.

I love to get lost in worship with the Lord and sing to Him. Being led by Holy Spirit in abandoned adoration and praise to my King. I also like to challenge myself by making up songs about the every day and especially about my kids. (So much for the spirituality, right? *grin/wink*)

This would be the part that Caleb defines as torture. He doesn't understand the full gifting it takes to be able to make up a song about Abigail to the Star Spangled Banner on the fly. Okay, he did look a little impressed after he dealt that challenge to me one day, but most days he just wants me to be quiet.

Well, while little man is away soaking up the 85 degree weather, the mommy will play. (Yeah, it was 85 degrees when they called me today to rub it, I mean, to let me know they safely arrived.) The best part is that Samuel loves it. I love to have an enthusiastic audience!

So, in light of this revelation and the fact that my sisters are threatening bodily harm if I don't post funny, happy stuff *evil grin*, here's an older video of Anita Renfroe doing her mom song to the William Tell overture. An artistic piece of work I happen to admire... And well, if you don't enjoy it, maybe you learned how to spell Richter scale like I did today.

Thank you, the bodily harm threat has been withdrawn.

That song always cracks me up!
