Last night I had supper with Older Son, his Lively Girlfriend, and her Munchkin. It was probably one of the more gratifying experiences I’ve had since COVID-19 hit.
Why’s that? It was just supper with Older Son and his family.
Well, it wasn’t just supper. It was a chance to see him operate in his home environment, and I think domesticity becomes him.
Not only did we have supper and visit, but we played games. I haven’t played games in a long time. Battleship is a game I played as a kid, and then again when I had kids. He played against the Munchkin, and then I got to play too.
Then we played Jenga. I don’t think I’ve ever had the opportunity to play that before.
After games was supper. We ate a lovely Italian dish, and a good time was had by all.
When it comes to my kids, I always worried that they were so broken by having divorced parents that they might not find someone to spend the rest of their lives with. Tonight I feel like all isn’t lost, at least for Older Son. Younger Son is so busy with his career that he hasn’t made time for a girlfriend yet. He’s only 25, and has lots of time.
Here’s hoping you find solace for something you’ve worried about. I didn’t know what a big worry it was for me until it wasn’t anymore! Blessings all!
