Today my celebration is . . . dinner.
Dinner at my house has gone out the window, I'm afraid. We're all running in different directions all of the time. On Sunday, we enjoyed a nice sit down meal. It was so nice to slow down and talk. My two youngest, ages 13 and 11, both have ADHD and one has autism. So lovely moments like these are sometimes hard to come by! It was so pleasant. Everyone talking, asking questions, and enjoying good food together.
My thought was, "I need to make this happen more often!" Well, we sat down together, all of us, again on Monday evening. Last night my 18 year old daughter was at work, but the rest of us sat down and enjoyed dinner together again.
It's the little things, but they sure do matter.
Sometimes when I'm really watching my calorie intake, I tend to nibble and snack all day. Which isn't a bad thing, but it can sometimes feel like I never eat anything "real". Eating a real, sit down meal with my family is actually pretty simple and so important.
