Today I went to lunch with my dad, mom, and a family friend. We tried a new restaurant and sat at a large booth with a large table. It was a little difficult to carry on a conversation as the music in the background was a little too loud and the booth behind me held 6 very chatty men. We asked the waitress if the music could be turned down and she got right on it. When our lunch came, we all got very quiet as we dug in to the delicious food. I didn’t mean to eavesdrop, but it was pretty easy to hear the chatty men behind me. They had several different conversations going on at the same time. They talked about wildlife and hunting and children and wives. After lunch, they lingered in the parking lot, still talking. They thanked each other for coming and exchanged man-hugs. We commented on how nice it was to see a group of men enjoying each other’s company so much.
I Found God today in a group of men enjoying friendship.
