We were preparing to sit down and enjoy a nice "family style" snack
when suddenly we noticed that the bowl had been moved
Our eyes quickly scanned the table,
and rested on a smiling toddler, our youngest,
who had claimed it all
Last night we all sat down together to enjoy another meal
It has been getting harder to do that lately,
but once we were all seated
and shared true stories
The children and I listened intently as he poured out his heart, and held ours, with his words
A body had been sacrificed for this moment; another for this meal
and I realized that it always seems to come back to this...
We are imperfect too
sometimes overcooked on the outside
sometimes undercooked on the inside
sometimes overcooked and undercooked at the same time
But none of that even matter because we're grateful for the opportunity to
and have it all...
National Family Dinner Day is Sept. 23rd
