Yesterday my brother had corrective eye surgery so I volunteered to spend time with him today to try and entertain him. We agreed that we would start the day off with breakfast together. When I arrived to pick him up he let me know he had called our mother and invited her along for breakfast too. It would be the first time in a VERY long time (at least that I can remember) that it was just us kids and mom. No husband, no wife, no Dad and no tag-along friends. I was excited at the thought!
When we all arrived at the cafe we picked it was as if my brother and I slipped right back into childhood. Mom asking a million questions so she could know what was going on in our lives. My brother and I picking on one another one minute and laughing together the next. The food was yummy. The coffee was excellent. The conversation was great. And the feeling of love for one another and the gift of time together was immense!
What a great way to start off a 3 day weekend!
