My kids were all home for supper tonight. It wasn’t a planned event but I am so very thankful for the time with them. As we approach a new season as a family, I will take that time when it’s just the 5 of us as often as I can. It’s not that I don’t enjoy their ‘friends’ as we call them at our house, I just know it warms my mom heart to have the 5 of us together once in a while.
It was great to hear them laugh together and tell stories of their weekend adventures.
After the kids returned to The City, I got a text message from my youngest daughter asking if I though it would be a bad idea to take a walk with a friend.
‘Why’ I asked her, ‘would it be a bad idea to take a walk?’
‘Well I have stuff I could do for class on Tuesday.’
‘Nope. Take the walk. It’s a gorgeous evening! Stuff will wait.’
‘You are right. Thank you.’
It made me smile. I’m not trading this life in for anything. Just sayin’.
