If there’s one good thing from this hurricane as everyone makes sure each other are safe, it’s that it’s bringing us all together. Tonight I’m sitting here with my parents playing cards (and so far I’m up by $1!)
I honestly can’t remember the last time I played cards with them, and I’ll admit - I’m laughing pretty hard and having a blast. Who knew they were so fun? Or that cards were fun?
Since I’m older now, I’m seeing this at a different perspective than I would have years ago. It reminds me of a journal entry I read this past year about over-working yourself or over-worrying about life’s problems to the point that you miss out on all of the important things. It said something to the effect of “When I look back at my life I won’t wish for another work day, or another scheduled appointment. I’ll simply wish I had just one more day to spend with the people I cared about most.”
