Laugh and the world laughs with you...

Do you ever have 1 of those times when you just have to sit back and laugh... at yourself? Everynow and then, I realize that I do things subconsiously and then when I do realize I am doing them, it is just funny! Why do we do them. These little things that seem insignificant at the time all kind of add up into 1 good laugh at ourselves.

It happened to me just this past week. I don't usually wear a watch because I am not on a regular schedule. I have watches mind you, I just don't bother to put 1 on. I needed a watch for a particular day this week and I knew I had 1 in a purse that I haven't been using lately. Well, I searched every purse I own and I didn't find any watches. The funny part is... What I did find in every purse is a rock, ( sometimes 2)! I have always been fascinated with rocks, however I didn't realize that I was stashing them. Living at the beach, I have always felt "rock deprived". We don't have real rocks, we have shells or dirt clods. So I guess unconsiously I have been stashing rocks.

I use them for different things too, I don't just carry them around. In my jewelry making, I sometimes wire wrap an unusual stone, or any and all beach pebbles just for the sheer joy of playing with a rock.

I am not sure what it is about them that I find so fascinating. Maybe it is just the variety, or the beauty that God has put in each 1. It may even be because they are unique, like us. No 2 will ever be identical. It is amazing when you think about it.

I really had to sit back and wonder at the evolution of this particular idiosyncracy. Then I just had a good laugh.

On a serious note now, I have to send out a big THANK YOU! to Mei from wireblissmei. She awarded me with a One Lovely Blog Award. It is my first blog award. Mei makes beautiful wire jewelry and she writes great tutorials too. I will soon be passing the award on, but in the meantime stop by her blog and check out her designs. You will glad you did.

Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused. ( Author Unknown)
