The Table

My husband and I used to love to go to his Aunt Helen and Uncle Eric’s house. Aunt Helen was always cooking something wonderful and we would go to a little fish place to get smoked fish to eat with special crackers.

Anyway, they had a wonderful, huge dining table with comfortable chairs to sit in. Long after the meal was over, we would continue to talk into the night about whatever happened to be on our minds at the time.

My Aunt Sissie and Uncle Webster had very much the same thing and every summer we would take the boys to visit and reminisce.

My husband and I soon decided that we would have a huge dining table with comfortable chairs if we didn’t have another stick of furniture in the house.

Well, the table eventually became a reality! It wasn’t cheap, but it has been worth every penny we spent on it.

We have shared many happy, laughing, crying, comforting hours at that table with our children and friends and hope to have many more!

Don't miss your chance! Sit around the table for a while!
