Funny Memories

Hi everyone! Christmas is coming fast! In our family, we have the added fun of three December birthdays all close to Christmas.

I was having dinner with a friend last night, and she remembered a Lilly story that I had forgotten until she told it.

Lilly was about six or seven, and we went to a big Christmas production at church. She was all dressed up for the holiday, and looked gorgeous in her Christmas dress.

At some point in the program, the choir was singing loudly, and Lilly got out of her seat and went into the aisle at the end of our row.

I was nervous that she was away from us, even if it was only six feet away, because let me tell you, she had a way of making things happen.

I kept glancing her way, and each time I did, she was waving her hands in time with the upbeat music and watching the choir intently.

That is, until we looked again, and saw that she was keeping time to the music with both middle fingers waving in the air.

Time to grab a kid and go!

That my friend  remembered it all these years later says a lot about the impact that child could have on people.

Merry Christmas, everyone! I’ll do another blog on December 26th. In the meantime, spread the word that Chasing Lilly is on Amazon Kindle! Love my readers! ➡  -Nealie

    You sure went through a lot of embarrassing times with her!
