Adults Need Recess, Too

Saturday was a "circle of life" type day.  I attended a baby shower in the morning, a memorial service in the afternoon, and a dinner party in the evening.  I also had a houseful of college kids staying for the weekend.

The memorial service brought to the forefront of my mind just how precious those other events are.  The memorial service was a celebration of life in honor of Alice, a woman who brought smiles and good cheer wherever she went, and the service reflected her good nature.

Attending the dinner party that evening, I realized that I don't spend nearly enough time socializing with friends "just because."  Much of my socializing is done during purpose-driven activities, and I realize that adults need recess, too.  The dinner party was just the ticket.  Collectively, I think we were the best comedy club in town.  We laughed until we cried, and then we laughed some more. 

I think Alice would have approved.
