We were planning last year to go to Toronto this summer. But since R had been laid off earlier this year, we had to forego our plans.
We were at the dinner table when Ryan asked, “Are we going to Toronto?” I replied, “I’m sorry, not this year. Daddy’s still not working.” Then Ryan said, “We never go anywhere!” Ryland interjected, “Yeah, we do. We go to Tita Carol’s and to McDonalds. I’m loving it!”
We all laughed. This is just what we needed. There had been quite a tension in this house lately because someone had been so irritable due to lack of finances. I just couldn’t help it. I hugged Ryland and told him, “I’m loving you!"
