Let’s Play Some Cards

I’ve been playing Hand and Foot for several years now with one of my dearest friends. Over the years, we have had different playing partners, but now her daughters play with us. As much as I enjoy the game, it’s the time spent with my “adopted” family that makes each get together special. Sometimes it’s just the four of us, but most of the time there will be some grandkids roaming around being rambunctious in the house or watching and listening as we play.The conversation, the stories, the laughter, and the outburst of song as we sing along to the music on Pandora are the sounds that fill the room. Often you here, “Whose turn is it?” and we always know.

Because of life’s unexpected circumstances, we have not played for several weeks, but today as we began shuffling and giggling about something silly, my friend remarked how much she missed the laughter, and we all agreed. Playing the game, for us, is so much more than a deck of cards and keeping score.  It’s family. It’s sharing our hearts. It’s the little ones who will one day join in the game. It’s memories that will last a lifetime and carry on for generations to come.

 So, who wants to play some cards?
