Birthday blessing

As an unofficial family tradition, my mother offers the prayer before birthday dinner. This prayer is always heartfelt and leaves you feeling loved, well almost always...

Here's what happened this year:
We're grateful for the joy that Jocelyn has brought into our family these many years, I mean, few years.

Giggling broke out around the table. My mom tried to gain her composure and establish some level of reverence, but to no avail.

She finally concluded:
We're thankful for her sense of humor....Amen.

I'm grateful my mom, my Heavenly Father, and I all have great senses of humor. :)
