Yesterday afternoon I slipped out to the golf course. It was a gorgeous January day. On the 10th hole, my cell phone rang. It was my youngest son Jonathan. I could hear my daughter-in-law Jennifer giggling in the background. They had just been to the doctor -- and they are having a girl. So we will have 2 boys and 2 girls come June. God is SO good! At this time, they are thinking about naming her Jocelyn.
This morning I asked Beverly, "I wonder how Jed will be with a baby sister." After I thought for a moment, I then asked, "I wonder how a baby sister will be with Jed?" He is such a blast!
As Beverly and I watched GMA this morning, there was a man on there who has "superior memory." There are only two documented cases. He remembers EVERYTHING. He can remember the date of his elementary school play, for instance.
I got to thinking: Is that something I wish I had? It would be good for remembering names -- a gift I wish I had. But I can also think of ways in which it might not be so good.
Here in Dallas the media has made a huge deal out of Tony Romo going to Cabo for a few days during their bye week. Interestingly, no one has mentioned the fact of him staying with a woman he is not married to. There is not scandal to that any more. In fact, I bet the majority of people did not even consider it. We have been numbed to it. After all, TV makes it look like the norm. I asked Beverly the other night if she could think of a TV show that even portrays a married couple? We couldn't.
