With three of her four children at home my mother threw together an impromptu Easter dinner last weekend. Brother Joe was in town to run a marathon and I came up to visit. My mother's house is attached to my sister's, so it was only Mark that was missing from the pop-up celebration. The dinner was simple- there was ham, some macaroni and cheese and a salad. We all sat down at the table and enjoyed a few laughs as we reminisced about days gone by. To have almost everyone together is quite the feat. Mark and his three children made it down to see my parents a few days later.
I wonder if he had any Easter dinner leftovers. If he did, does that mean we were kinda all together for the holiday?
Maybe next year.
