A Family Favorite

Growing up, every Sunday evening was spent at my grandma and grandpa’s house. We would get together and play board games and writing games, talk about life – and eventually have a nice big “lunch” near the end of the evening.

My grandma would often make this vegetable pizza, and if we were lucky, there would be a fruit pizza served as well.

I thank God for all of those Sunday evening get-togethers. I wish I could go back in time and experience just one of them again – with my grandma, grandpa, and aunt still living.

But life doesn’t work that way.

We have to be thankful for TODAY. For the holidays spent with family. For the food. For the people we are blessed to have in our lives today.
