Nearly 3 weeks into Advent, we finally dined by candlelight last night. First it was a matter of finding a decent advent wreath (which I found and have had packed away in the basement for a year and a half). Then, it was purchasing the right candles (finally accomplished that last weekend). Complicating things even further was my bout with a stomach bug and the fact that we didn’t really all sit down for a meal for a couple of days this week.
Have you ever dined by candlelight with your whole family? The immediate peace that enveloped our table brought a smile to my face and wonder to my children’s eyes. My 2 year old’s gasp, my 6 year old’s impulsive urge to shut off all the lights in the house. The conversation remained spirited, but calm. No rushing to move on to cleanup-baths-teeth-story-bedtime.
