I am going to focus on one thing for Thankful Thursday and that is my dinner last night.
Last night my son James had a fundraiser for his class camping trip. The fundraiser was at a restaurant and the restaurant was going to be donating a portion of the bill to the school.
Well, the restaurant just happens to be run my my ex-husband. Another employee of the restaurant is Jess, my kids’ other Mom. We’ve planned on going in for the fundraiser ever since they announced it. I have only been there once and Paul hadn’t ever been.
This past weekend, I thought “I should ask Jess if she would like to sit with us”, well then the kids told me that she was working and wouldn’t be attending. So, I didn’t think much about it. Well, on Monday I got a text from Jess asking if we would mind if she joined us. She had got the day off of work.
After a little bit of a confusing text conversation, we decided that we would all be dining together. We met at the restaurant at 6pm. Paul, myself, our son Noah, James and Jordan, my Dad and Jess!
We all sat at this super big booth/table together. There was so much food, 3 different appetizers, many beers, meals and of course dessert. We were there for nearly 2 hours enjoying each others company.
Not all families could do this. Not all families would even consider trying. I am so happy that Jess and I have built this bridge. A bridge that allows us to dine all together and enjoy stories and conversation. Share a table where the kids are calling back and forth for “Mom” referring to both Jess and I.
This is our life and I am so Thankful for it!!
What are you Thankful for Today?
