Communication: No Kidding

Communication: No Kidding

When Franicia and I were courting and then when we were newlyweds, we would kid around with each other from time to time. Personally, I figured that I was showing my love to Franicia when I would kid around like I showed my love to my brothers growing up. Something interesting would happen when we would joke with one another, though -- often, one of us would get our feelings hurt.

Good Morning Song: Memories of Late Mother Anicia

Mom in Saipan used to sing this to us as little children at times. I miss her.

The past couple of months I've been greeting our children this way before we start our day and when I'm out of my room. If Tim and I are up early we'll greet our children together.

I still get my snuggles and kisses in bed when the early ones come to me in the morning, but this is something I can tell they really enjoy hearing every day even in the midst of challenging times.

Song Lyrics Added by Request

Good morning! Good morning! 
Good morning! How are you?
Good morning! Good morning!
I'm fine. Thank you!
(repeat twice)

Honoring Our Veterans

Honoring Our Veterans

I wonder if a lot of older veterans love telling "sea stories" because while they serve they have to be pretty quiet about a lot of things for safety. We experience various things as a family and some things are pretty amazing, but only those we love, trust, and get to talk to in person get to hear some of it. That can make for interesting communication....
