During a recent family dinner, I told my great-nieces that they were living through history. “Just think,” I said, “someday you will be able to tell your children that you survived the pandemic of 2020.” The 13-year-old jumped out of her chair and responded, “No kidding. If I ever hear them say they are bored, I’ll say you don’t know what bored is!”

Many years ago, Beth, my wife, and I were team teaching at an outdoor education facility. The fourth-grade class took a mid-morning break. When the kids returned, one of the girls raised her hand and said, “My teacher told us that you are married.” She paused in thought, then said, “But you talk like individuals.”

I had a bad cold for a week and my son got all the grandchildren together to say a prayer for Grandma’s recovery. After they prayed for me to get better, my 4-year-old grandson, Josiah, said, “And don’t let Grandma get hit by a truck.”

Where that came from, I don’t know, but I’ll take all the prayers I can get.
