Happiness is a kitchen table
It is Friday and time to share some fun with the members of the Happy Book Mail Around group. Each week we share something that has brought us happiness. This week we were to go on a scavenger hunt and find pictures of certain words. Although my picture does not represent all of the words it does represent many of them. I am not a person that loves objects (except for my car - I really do have fun in it) but I do love what an object represents or the memories it provides and that is why I decided to share my kitchen table with you. There are many mornings when I get up early and just enjoy a cup of coffee at the table alone before the day starts. And almost every evening my husband and I share dinner at the table going over the day. When I look at this picture I don't see an empty table. I see the many times it was surrounded by family and friends. I see my son and his wife before they were married excitedly sharing their wedding plans with us. I see both of my grandsons sitting in their highchair excited to be part of the dinner or birthday party. I see our friends laughing as we all learned how to play bridge together. I see the dogs sitting under our feet as we eat dinner. Some of the words that we were to represent this week are circle, smile, heart, treasure, and home. This table represents all of those words and much more to me. What did you observe or find that brought you happiness this week?

I love that happy perspective of the table being full, memories seen before you. That's beautiful!

What a great reflection on tables and what they mean to us. My dining table makes me happy too!
