To be able so sit at the table with my two kids and eat a nice meal is heaven. There are so many things that people want. My list is not too long, as a matter of fact, it is pretty short. I suppose the younger you are the longer it is, since when you are younger things seem more glamorous than they really are. No, for me eating a nice meal, having good conversation and laughing; I don’t know what could top that.
