Andrew: “I think I hear a woman’s voice.”
I listen… “Bark bark!”
Me: “Um, that’s a dog.”
Moments later I start laughing uncontrollably while he’s trying to tell me a story. I couldn’t stop laughing for a good long while. He had to phone his mom. He always phones his mom when I laugh like that! It’s not some great feat! I laugh pretty easy. But that was so funny to me. She was quite the “yappy” lady.
If you’ve ever seen any zoo show, then you likely know all about animal enrichment. Enrichment is when they take an animals food, put it inside various items, and then distribute these items around it’s enclosure to, apparently, enrich their lives.
Andrew has decided that I need enrichment too. Every night I take three magnesium capsules. So to be “helpful” my hubby gets my magnesium ready for me by hiding it in various locations on or around the bed. He thinks I enjoy this. I don’t. I want to go to bed! He thinks I’m grinning. I’m not. I’m grinning and bearing it. (It might be more like baring my teeth.) I told him I’m going to write to the zoo and tell them this: Stop torturing the animals! They don’t enjoy enrichment! If you don’t stop, given the chance, they will eat you!
Nevermind all of the animals we’ve had over the years. Our home is a zoo. We just don’t charge admission.
“A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”Proverbs 17:22
“Cheerfulness of spirit has a great influence upon the body, and much contributes to the health and welfare of it; see Ecclesiastes 9:7; and especially a heart full of spiritual joy, peace of conscience, flowing from the blood of Christ, joy in the Holy Ghost, a rejoicing in Christ Jesus and his righteousness, and in hope of the glory of God, much affect even the outward man.”Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible
