Preheat the day to a perfect 78 degrees.
Combine 5 families for one evening
Add burgers, hashbrown casserole and fruit salad
Mix 7 happy children on a trampoline with
3 completely kissable babies.
Simmer in the sweet evening for 3 hours and add
the soft red rays of the setting sun.
Fold in layer upon layer of beautiful conversation late into the night,
Sprinkle stars on top and enjoy
the masterpiece
that is relationship.

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
