Almost the Perfect Evening
It was almost a perfect evening. The weather was absolutely beautiful. Definitely the type of weather your feet are screaming out to wear some flip-flops.
We made plans to meet at a restaurant for our weekly family night. The food was the usual okay-ish and the dinner table conversation topics were shared with a mixture of emotions. We saw friends at various tables throughout the restaurant that made our evening even more enjoyable.
After a couple of hours together, we prepared to go our separate ways. We all find comfort in knowing that we will see each other again next week to catch up on each other’s lives. But for me, something was missing.
My husband had decided to make other plans tonight. He chose to go to a men’s fellowship dinner at the church.
I’m okay with that. It just wasn’t the perfect evening.
