31 Beautiful Things, Day 4: Supper and Cards
After we eat, we play cards—Randy, my parents, and me. We have a long tradition in our family of playing a game called 500. I learned to play it as a little girl by watching my older brothers, parents, and grandparents play. In my family, playing 500 is considered an expectation, as is playing ping-pong.
I cherish these beautiful evenings, sharing a pot of decaf coffee, watching my parents' familiar hands deal the cards, laughing at our losing bids, exclaiming over victories.
What beautiful things are in your life today?

I got a little weepy reading your post as one of my favorite beautiful things involved having my mom and dad over for dinner and then playing dominoes :). Now that dad's gone it's more often lunch with mom then Boggle or Upwords. And whenever I play Boggle I think of you and Latin into Mod English class and I smile:). I so love these posts!ReplyDelete
