Four chairs came in to the house today.
Might not seem like a big deal. And really, it’s not. But I find a little bit of joy in it. So much of my family time, as a child, as a young parent, as the parent of teens, with friends-has been spent around a table. Eating, talking, playing games. Living life by doing the things we need to do to get through life.
I want to sit at the table and have a meal. I want to gather there and play games. I want to continue doing the important things we have spent our lives doing. Around a table.
But there’s only four chairs. Some of you may have to stand. I’ll take turns with you.
