So last night we got home from our appointment thinking, "Now what?" And we started going about our normal evening routine.
These days, that routine involves getting online to look at the comments y'all have left. Now, anytime one of us is online, the girls come up to us and start asking us to play various youtube clips.
(It's really quite charming. My four-year-old now makes up lyrics to the tune of Stayin' Alive. That's quite a kick, when it happens.)
So the first one they wanted to see yesterday was a fun little animated rendition of I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas that our kinswoman-by-marriage (and sometime commenter) Timeless sent us a few weeks back. (Many thanks, by the way!) The kids loved that one. So, we complied.
And then we started surfing through the other youtube offerings, linking from one to the next. And wouldn't you know it, before very much longer we wound up on a Muppet clip from Sesame Street.
I'll take this as sign number MDLXXXII that God sometimes works in extremely mysterious ways, because this clip was exactly what I needed to see last night. Not only did the kids rather like it, but by about halfway through it, I had a big, dopey grin on my face too. Take a look at it and see what you think.
