So … how to let folks know what kind of people are my wife and I? Hmmm … here is a quick peak into shared behavior that might provide some insight …
We were just sitting down to eat and were having one of those “butter intensive” meals … steak, baked potato, salad and bread. Just before sitting down to the table, one of us had commented that we needed to take a package of oleo out of the freezer as we were on the last thawed stick. Right at that moment, Katherine noticed something in the butter (oleo) dish and blurted out, “What the hell is that!?” What the hell was that turned out to be a snake skin from an obviously very small snake, likely a grass snake as we have many of them in our backyard, along with four small dogs.
Without missing a beat, we both acknowledged the likelihood of the dogs having brought the skin into the house and we simply cut that part of the stick to which the snake was stuck, and bowed our heads in Prayer and Thanksgiving to the Lord for our bountiful meal.
Don’t know why that moment caught me as … significant … as to who we are and what we are about. Never have I felt more “normal” than at that moment.
Weird … I know.
