S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y Nite!

by Lisa Donovan

I have to catch you up on the weekend I had - something magical happened on Saturday night that, most wives will attest to, is a gem in one’s marriage.  I came home from work at about 11pm and my husband, John, was waiting in the dining room with a bottle of lucious red wine, the first CD that he ever made me playing (an artful collection of Keb’Mo, Frank Black, Etta James, The Sea and Cake just to name a few) and (here’e the icing on the cake) and tearjearking and hilarious slideshow on our computer of pictures from the last five years of our lives.. we sat, drank wine, watch our lives on screen and realized how damn lucky we are. 

it’s true that when people close to you die, you are shocked into taking notice of all the beautiful things around you that, typically, you ignore - our families occasionally get taken for granted, our own good health goes unnoticed…. What John reminded me (and himself) Saturday night was that we are living the lives we always dreamed - we have healthy kids, lovely and supportive spouses, budding careers, good (great!) friends and even more incredible families.  Things are good.  Life is sweet.  I am happy.
