Sean and I love our families. The older we get, the more we realize how much they mean to us. Everyone is different and unique. Different talents, viewpoints and ideas. Personalities that mesh (and some that clash from time to time) and make us better. Make us think. Make us stronger.
We decided that once a month we would have both of our families over for dinner. One Sunday night a month. Dinner, chatting, laughing. And a game of original washers (our new favorite thing-thanks Jake!) to top it off.
Tonight everyone came over and laughed, played and reconnected. A beginning of a wonderful tradition. The only thing that was missing were my wonderful parents. Surgery stinks, but he is doing really good (and of course he is trying to walk without his crutches!) But they will be with us next time.
I was so happy. So at peace. So “at home”.
Family is one of Christ’s greatest blessings.
