Last week was a busy week at work for Shane. He worked very long days and we did not see him much. Sunday was another long day of teaching and meetings. Before leaving church, I asked him what sounded fun for him when he got home.
After a minute of thinking, he said, "How about something really good to eat? And maybe Duck Dynasty or game night?"
The boys and I drove home in the pouring rain. We quickly ate a bowl of cereal for lunch and then headed to the grocery store to get all the fixin's for a Mexican fiesta.
I set a simple but cheerful table. Just a table cloth, some cloth napkins, and a few candles. It was a little touch that had a little wow factor since we don't set the table like this every day.
The menu? Nacho night complete with salsa, cheese dip and fresh guac.
He walked in the door after a long day and long week and said, "NO WAY!" The house was in order and the dinner was going. We ate a good dinner and then watched Duck Dynasty, Swamp People (which I don't love as much anymore since the Robertson's came into my life), and the Duggars.
How's that for a refreshing way to spend an evening? I'll tell ya, it was the best feeling to take a little effort to ask what would bless him. It didn't take hardly any time at all to create a special evening we all enjoyed. Maybe this week there is a night you could plan a fun little evening for you or your family.
