Having Fun=Making Memories

Year 5-Day 328: Today...I am grateful for all the memories made by having fun. 

This quote is full of truth. 

"We didn't realize we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun."

Our babies are now all young adults. They are grown. Last night, when the extended family was gone and we were down to just our immediate family, our grown up kids decided to play a cooperative game. It required their phones... but the game was full of interaction. 

While we sat relaxing, watching a movie. The "kids" were in the theater room playing Space Team. Occasionally, we would hear someone shout "asteroid". The rest of what they were calling out was unclear at times. Still, we could hear the laughter, camaraderie  and the fun. 

Cousins and friends... they are both. What a gift it is to be together. We are so grateful they have relationship. We are blessed that two hours is not too far to travel. We smile to think of the years they have ahead of them to be cousins and friends. 

I had to laugh when Matt looked up and said, "I think they were quieter when they were little." We laughed because no one of us thought they were too loud. We savored the sound. 

Psalm 126 is a Psalm of ascent for Pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. It is a song of a dream come true and giving thanks to God for his goodness and glorious ways. It speaks of being so happy the laughter joyfully bubbles. 

"We were filled with laughter, and we sang for joy. And the other nations said, “What amazing things the Lord has done for them.”-Psalm 126:2

Hearing the laughter of our adult children is just as sweet as the giggles when they were wee ones. I am so grateful that having fun together is a great way to build memories. 

Today...I am grateful for all the memories made by having fun.
