A Little Bit of Effort – A Whole Lot of Reward!

Yesterday we decided as a family to get a Chinese Takeaway to mark the end of the children’s mid-term break from school.

I was busy getting information together for a course I will be running, and I was delighted not to be cooking dinner so I could have more time to work on it. 

Tony headed off to collect the takeaway (no deliveries in rural Ireland!), and I was aware that I had to PULL myself away so that I could set the table and have everything ready when he got back.  I knew that if I didn’t, the meal would just be ordinary, and it would be extra money spent for nothing.

Well, I reluctantly put the laptop aside and started to set the table – tablecloth, candle, the works.  As I was doing this, the kids came out to the kitchen and they got in on the act.  They got the special cutlery out, the wine glasses.  Tony came home to a gorgeous table, subdued lighting and soft music.  We all sat around and had a fabulous Special Moments meal together.  Everyone’s spirits were lifted, and there were lots of jokes and good times.

After dinner, I didn’t want to just leave it there.  There was half an hour before bedtime, so we got out the book we had been reading, but had forgotten about for the past few days, and we sat around the stove and finished it.  It was great!

I was delighted with the evening, and I was delighted that just a little bit of effort that made a very simple evening very, very special.

Wishing you magical moments in your day.

Love,

Sharon.
