Milton, here:

By now you know that I think Kristy is a pretty smart gal. She is pretty and she is smart. But oh, has she made some hilarious statements!

Kristyism: an unbelievably hilarious statement, too funny not to share. (By the way, we all say them. We just need to laugh through them and not take life so serious. I have made some real bloopers too.)

A Kristyism Illustrated:

Years ago we were sitting in a restaurant in Wilmington, N.C., in an outdoor dining area on the Cape Fear River. This is a favorite eating spot where Norma and Ron, my sister and her husband, enjoy eating.

The river is such a calming relaxing place to dine and we were all having a great time. As the dinner progressed a fireboat maneuvered straight across the river from us and began to shoot huge sprays of water. The sprays from several fire hoses filled the view. Water was going in all directions, and this went on for most of the time we were there. It added to the river experience.

Just before we left, Kristy spoke up and said, "Wow, I never knew those riverboats could hold sooo much water."

We laughed and laughed until we were rollin' on the river. (That sounds like a good tune.)

Kristy begged Ron to never tell that story, but it's just too good not to repeat. He says that he always tells this story to guests who dine with him on the river.

Kristyisms have kept us in stitches throughout our journey.

What fun.

Don't worry. I'll tell one on me later.

How Is Kristy?

She woke up not feeling so good Friday morning, but as usual, she put a smile on her face and a praise in her heart. Thankfully, she began feeling better as the day progressed.

Hi Milton & Kristy,

Thank you for the laughs this morning. I'm famous for NOT knowing how things work. You're right, life is way too short not to laugh at ourselves. I figure, since the Lord made us in His image, He laughs right along with us.

Continued prayers for Kristy's complete healing. Have a BLESSED weekend.

Love & prayers,
Nancy & family

Hi Milton and Kristy,
I'm also famous for my bloopers. My family can testify to that. It's so good to be able to relax and laugh together. They say it is very healing too. Thanks for sharing this fun story with us. I enjoyed talking to Krsity on the phone this week. I am praying the Lord will give her clarity for writing and strength to enjoy her family and friends.

Love and prayers,
