Double Dog Dare

Do you remember daring someone to do something and then to entice them even more you throw out the "Double Dog Dare".  No one can refuse the Double Dog Dare, right?

Well, life has been a little on the stressful and emotional side lately and I decided to bring up a fun and light hearted moment between sisters not long ago.  You have to have fun in life and sisters or siblings in general should always be able to have fun and laugh together, but you should always be able to "Double Dog Dare" your sibling and you know they can't not do it which makes it all the more fun.

So my sister, Paige, and I were on the phone one night and she was telling me that she was getting up early in the morning to go work out.  Of course, I laugh because I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to exercise and certainly first thing in the morning.  Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm a morning person to a fault.  However, when I'm up early the last thing I want to do is work out.  I would much rather clean or start working, but working out, nope, never crosses my mind.  :)

Anyway, I can't remember exactly how the conversation went now, but I do remember her talking about some pole she had to use when working out and she said it was too heavy.  I told her then just use a broom and she laughed and then I Double Dog dared her to and she said she would.  Of course I told her I needed proof of said broom so low and behold, she did it.  I'm pretty sure we named him "Bob", but don't hold me to that.

So for everyone out there that might be feeling the weight of the world on their shoulders lately and feeling stressed and/or emotional, here is your smile for today that I hope at least puts a little sunshine in your day, it did mine and honestly, I needed it.  Enjoy!

Thanks sis for the fun.  You are pretty good at accepting dares (always have been), but more than that, thank you for being able to laugh with even when we all have so much going on in life right now.

We all need to be able to laugh and have fun with our family and friends, but more importantly, with our family.  Families have so much on them these days from raising small children to aging parents and so much in between that we need to be able to let our hair down and just have some fun even if it is with a broom.

Go love your family a little more today and laugh a lot!
