Yesterday was our 24th anniversary. Yay God!!
A movie date night? (Nope. Not us.)
Nope, the best gift was having dinner around the table with husband, daughter, and son. We had a family hug in the kitchen and my hubby prayed before we all filed through the kitchen and grabbed a plate of baked potatoes, BBQ chicken, and spinach. Then we filed into the living room in front of the fire and watched the end of Click before we played a round of Black Sevens--a made up game using Rook cards. Five rounds later, filled with silly stories, funny noises, bragging, strategizing, reading each other's minds, belly laughs and serious competition--and I won!
But more than the game. We've been blessed. I'd trade a candlelight dinner, expensive jewelry any day for precious moments like these. Each year is sweeter. The moments more dear.
Take time to make your family memories this season.
