So with Jule's so doing the idea I had for this morning, being a good book, I have realized I've got to be much quicker on the draw on Friday mornings. Just kidding. I'm sure, being readers of blogs, that most of us could understand why there would be more than one person who would put books as a simple everyday thing that make's us content. I could put the adage, "Great minds think alike" right in here, right Jules?
Ok, I think that was enough rambling time to think of something else. Here we go. My everyday thing I'm thankful for this week is the supper table. Yes, the supper table. I'm pretty blessed in my family as most nights we have everybody home to eat supper together. This is a time we inquire as to how each other's day went, share what happened with ourselves, sometimes have spirited discussions about extending boundaries (those with teens know what that means) and just generally enjoy each other's company before the evening's agenda takes over. It's a time to relax and be ourselves. When I hear of families who are so busy they rarely have this, I am so thankful that so far, our supper table is intact.
