thankful – solc # 14

A brief moment in time, we gathered around a restaurant table, surrounded by people and background music  noise. Our family ate dinner together tonight. Our son is home on his last spring break, on track to graduate from college in May, making contacts and looking for a job. (Hooray!) Our daughter and son-in-law were  joining us, making time for us in their happy, busy lives.

Nonstop chatter about the interests, amusements, and pieces of our day.

How can someone be adequately thankful for this? How can you grasp this joy without feeling at least a little guilty that not everyone shares this?

We live in the moment, absorb every detail, focus on every shimmer of light, record every laugh, and relish every memory.
