Civil War Grumpies

We started the tradition as planned and so far my husband and two boys have been interested. But tonight, there is a football game on (Civil War) and there was a little chaos and grumpies when it was time to sit down to light our candle.  We sort of grumped through the lighting and were a bit sarcastic about the reading regarding “what goal needs more hope”. But then, we pulled the “I appreciate you” card and the entire family came away feeling so much better, reminded of how much we love each other and how much we depend on one another.  It changed the whole tone of the evening, maybe the season!  Thanks for introducing me to this!  – D and Family
