Being back home for the past couple of months has allowed for various activities. Whether that is joining a book club to read One Hundred Years of Solitude, having Zoom Bible studies with some hometown friends throughout the week, or just sleeping in, I have been able to stay occupied even during these tumultuous times. However, one activity that has helped keep me and my family sane has been cooking. Every week, each member of my family has the task of cooking dinner for the entire group. The person then has the option to pick whatever dish they want to make. Not only does it spread the work of cooking to everyone, but it also allows us to grow closer together and create new memories.
Our family dinners are a constant source of stability in a world where every week has another earth-shattering event. It helps keep our family close and allows us to create new memories and share our own memories and stories!
