Remember being called to dinner?
Was there a mad rush in your house as everyone took their seat at the table?
All the day’s hard labor forgotten around the laughter and banter, the teasing and catching up on each others’ activities away from home?
Who was seen flirting at the bus stop?
Who was caught taking apples from Farmer Duhlgren’s orchard?
And what did mother spend half a day preparing? With fresh steaming biscuits for the gravy?
Yeah, it wasn’t like that at my house, either.
But here’s a happy family, so let’s enjoy their pleasures with them.
