Ready or not, here it comes! It's time for What I Learned This Week over at Musings of a Housewife. So, what did you learn this week?
"There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who like Neil Diamond and those who don't." (Bill Murray, What About Bob)
So true, so true. But for this blog's purposes, I'll be adding a sub-category. Those who are deep thinkers and those who are not.
There are some bloggers who are amazing wordsmiths that find depth and meaning in what would otherwise be a mundane event. Take Billy Coffey's blog for example. The guy can pull meaning out of anything and do it in a way that will leave you in awe. If you haven't read his blog before, you really should. Really deep stuff.
Then there are those who are more along the lines of Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey. Funny, but definitely in the shallow end of the pool.
If you've ever read my blog before, you know where I fall.
This is not to say that I'm not an intelligent person. Actually, I'm quite bright. I just don't think or write in a deep and meaningful way. That's not who I am. And I've been learning that that's okay.
Alright, I'll admit that I'm
incredibly a bit jealous of the deep swimmers. They have an amazing gift that I admire. But God gave me a gift, too - the gift of finding the laughter in everyday events. It's not a gift for the faint of heart. Nope. Because with that gift comes the added bonus of a lot of potentially embarrassing situations for you to find the funny in, also known as excellent blog fodder. So that's what I get to share with you here - the lighter side of life. I think it makes for a nice balance, don't you? C'mon in. The wading pool is fine.
