In the many directions that God has taken us we have been privileged to cross paths with several enlightening people. Our friend Terry is proving to be one who is very enlightening. Terry has a way of lighteing the mood no matter where you are. Most of the time everyone is smiling after spending any length of time with him. Now I wouldn't have you believe that Terry is a comedian, because he also has a serious side. But, it is his vocabulary that is most thought provoking. We have learned so many new terms that can be applied to everyday life situations. We call these special terms "Terryisms."
For instance, if you don't completely understand something, then you don't get the "jiff," or if you are wanting to totally act like you don't hear someone you should "anore" them. I think one of my all time favorites is the "Pinacolata" - that is what you have at children's birthday parties that are full of candy.
I could spend quite a bit of time sharing what we have learned from Terry, but then I would need to start all over again because he is daily adding to our vocabulary. How refreshing it is to be with people who can add so much in such a simple way!
