One of the big blessings/curses of my life are my brothers and sisters. I have 10 of them. Seriously. I won't go into names and such 'cause I'd like to get to the point sometime this decade. But one of my favourite things to do with them is to share a meal. Another favourite is to argue about every tiny insignificant meaningless little thing under the sun. That's always fun. But my ABSOLUTE favourite thing to do with them is to sing. For real. When we sing together, everything falls away. You know all the baggage that sits there between brothers and sisters? It just evaporates. The feelings I get when I'm amongst them singing is... well honestly, words fail to express it... When we're singing together and I close my eyes, I am transported to another place. It's very strange because these are my siblings and they drive me nuts for the most part, right?... But in these moments, when our voices come together, I am almost convinced there's a heaven.
I wouldn't trade these moments for the prettiest craft room in the world. Or even, come to think of it, for the world itself.
So today, on this blog's 3rd blogiversary, I'm putting my feet up, whipping up a tall cool glass of lemonade, and giving myself the crafty day off. I'm also presenting myself with the following gift. It's a video of one my singing siblings.
Here's my little brother Joel regaling us with his song "On The Blue"...
Happy 3rd blogiversary to me, eh?
