Flashback Friday... Have it All!

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

we prayed
broke bread
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

bless it
break it
and have it all...

National Family Dinner Day is Sept. 23rd 
How will your family celebrate "having it all"?
