Holiday dinner with friends crossed off the stress list.
It was a big success, good time was had by all. The children played (albeit chaotic, but children will be children). The adults caught up with each other. Many laughters were shared. The food was delicious. I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but really, it was delicious. The spread was wonderful, and the desserts were so lovely.
The children got to open their presents. Eyes lit up and smiles were abundant.
We don’t see these people nearly as often as should be proper, but tonight just reminds me that when we do meet, it’s almost always a fantastic time. I guess maybe afterall.. this is the kind of friendship that withstands the test of time. You catch up after months and things feel like we just talked yesterday.
I’m glad to have this privilege to share this holiday merriment with them. I’m glad to be lucky enough to enjoy delicious food, all plentiful and abundant. I hope to someday, cook these delicious spread for people who starve. And share some merriment with them. Some laughters, some stories.
Holidays or not.
