A Family of Three

Tonight I realized that one of my biggest dreams had come true. I was happily making dinner, and it dawned on me that I was excited for dinner time with the boys. For years I felt sad at dinner time, like without someone playing the role of "Dad" at the table, what was the point? But tonight that feeling was gone. We sat down and did our normal routine of praying and then sharing one good thing, and one bad thing, about our day. We have done it a million times, but tonight there was something different. I was content. Not in the routine of dinner time, but in me. I was content for the first time in a long time with my family being a family of 3. I feel so blessed to be in that place!


  1. In an Alateen workshop I heard the sharing of a good and bad moment in the day called "Happies and Crappies". That stuck with me. Oh, yeah, I think 3 is an awesome number..and we are a family of 2 now, most of the time, and that is an awesome number as well.

    Your joy is showing :-D

  6. Contentment is Good!

    You're blessed when you're content with just who you are—no more, no less. That's the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can't be bought.” Matthew 5:5
