Tonight we held an impromptu backyard pizza night with two neighbors.

It’s Tuesday.  It’s not “supposed” to be a night for gathering.  If it were a “normal” week, we’d have two kids studying for finals.  Another off on his internship. 

We would have pushed this type of supper off to a weekend before.  

Instead, we sat together as a family—along with two guests.  The slower pace allows for this sort of spontaneity. 

I am feeling rather grateful for the silver lining tonight!
