Been Looking Forward – Thankful Thursday

It’s that time again this week, the time where I post pictures of things I’m grateful for! I hope that they are as enjoyable for you as they have been for me.

This Thursday has been a good day for me emotionally but kind of dizzying physically. (Just one of those days where my vertigo is worse than usual.) But even with that, I’m happy today, happier partly because I just am and partly because I’ve been looking forward to this posting challenge for the past few days.

If you haven’t read the original Thankful Thursday post (http://mithriluna.wordpress.com/2014/05/15/thankful-thursday-a-mothers-day-story/) head on over and check it out! It certainly brightened my day! (grins)

Sorry! You’re Obsolete

Out of everything she’d ever seen come and go, the thing she missed the most was the ability to simply sit around a table and play board games with her family. The advent and spread of video games, both on the computer and it’s smaller cousins or on the television. She missed having her husband at the other end of the dining room table with their sons on either side.

Mary entered her apartment and was greeted by the sounds of her youngest playing…something…on the small handheld that he had received from his older brother for Christmas. With a glance, she saw that Terry was sitting at the sofa working on some homework or maybe something else. She wasn’t entirely certain as he was working on those tablets that had become popular in her early years in this world.

If she was lucky, they’d agree to a quick family night tonight and do something together. If she was even luckier, they’d agree to a game of Sorry! as long as she was able to keep it a quick game.

Her eldest was often called in to work strange hours at his job.

Also written because a few nights ago we were able to sit down and play a round of Sorry! which isn’t something that we’re always able to sit down and do. I miss the family game nights of board games…
