Last night my family had dinner together for the first times in weeks, we normally have a family dinner every Monday night as it is extremely important to me that we never take our time together for granted. The past few weeks each one of us have had something on where we have missed out on sharing dinner and catching up on what’s happening in our lives.When my children were little every night at dinner we would go around the table and everyone would have to say what their best thing or their worst thing for the day was, this happened every night for some 20 years and even now when they come for dinner they still have to participate in this....my little bit of fun. It was a way of teaching them to communicate and share their day with us.
During dinner last night my daughter expressed that she has just started playing the same little game with her children, I love that my children have continued on so many of my values and traditions it gives me such a sense of pride, knowing what I had taught them as children has grown with them into adulthood, even a little game such as this to help her children keep the lines of commutation open between them.
Sitting around the table also had me stop and think how fast they have grown up; my beautiful daughter will turn 30 years old in 12 days. I sat there listening to her talking about her children’s events of the day watching her laugh, while a million thoughts and memories of her from birth to now raced through my mind asking myself where o where did the time go and although I love what we now share between us as adults.....I’d have her back at birth age in a blink! Although I’m so truly blessed to have both my children and grandchildren live close by and share such a close relationship with them, I can’t help sometimes thinking, how much I miss my two little children!
I hope you share some of your family times with me!
