We were both still sitting at the table tonight, picking at the leftover yellow peppers and entertained by the kid's post-mealtime antics, and I casually said to him,
So... you know that Proverbs 31 woman?
And he quipped, No, I don't know her, without even missing a beat.
Momentarily distracted by the comment and my uncontrollable abdominals, however, I completely forgot to finish my thought, which was that if the Proverbs 31 woman is truly able to laugh at the days to come, then she must've had a glass of wine before dinner.
While making dinner, to be more specific, and with a side of Boys to Men and other random 90's classics to drown out all the chaos underfoot that time of day.
With that glorious combination, I would laugh, too, and probably dance a little. And if you can laugh at today, there's certainly hope for all the tomorrows.
