Hanukah in the house

The mennorah has burned down and Ruth and Chris are in the kitchen prepping lattkes for their traditional party tomorrow. Liam is asleep in their bed, and K.K> is flopped on the couch. Bob will be home in the morning. I like sitting back here in my room, off duty after a very tiring work week, part of the love of a family, hearing their voices from the kitchen, but not having to do much. That is something I didn't know I missed when our nuclear families lived seperately, the pleasure of loved ones around without effort or intention, evokes the best memories of childhood.
