Hammocks~ Day Four

No, you’re not crazy. Yes, I realize Day Three is missing. I completed Day Three blog and then I magically deleted it. Crazy, I know. And it was a really good one too. Oh well, I said my thanks and that’s what matters. I’m sure God read it before it was deleted 😉

You know what I love? Hammocks. I LOVE hammocks. I don’t simply like them. I have a connection with them. It started when I was in college. I spent many summer nights hanging out with close friends on a hammock from my home church in Broken Arrow. My friend Travis had a sweet hammock that could fit what seemed like all the neighborhood kids on it. We all crowded onto that hammock and laughed the night away. I also had a hammock in college that my friend Shanna and I would chill out on. We would set it up in the middle of the field in front of Collins dorm. It was so relaxing. Some great conversations happened on that hammock.

Now, I have my very own hammock. It may not seem that cool to you, but in my cool mind, it is a device that brings happy moments. Today, I got to relax in that hammock with my baby girl. She thinks it’s so funny to watch me get into it. It actually is kinda funny. Just picture this white girl trying to steady a flying carpet with a giant giggling, squirming bag of flour. It’s not that easy. None the less, we finally get into it and make forever memories.
