I am joining the Two Writing Teachers for the March Slice of Life Challenge. I invite you to visit their website to read others' stories.
There's nothing exciting about them, but oh, how I cherish them.
It's just us.
We pick up pizza on the way home and discuss what our family movie will be for the evening. Destiny suggests Remember the Titans which we've been talking about all week. As soon as we walk in the door, I see that Keith and Autumn have the movie ready to go. I line up the pizza boxes, get out the paper plates (no washing dishes tonight either) and we dig in.
The lights go out.
We settle in and we let all the stresses of the week melt away. It's time with the girls with no interruptions and no reason to hurry. We slow down and savor what we have.
Friday nights...nothing exciting, but somehow, very special. I wouldn't give them up for anything.
