It has been a long time since I have experienced the joy in sharing a nice meal with family and friends. The jovial atmosphere, the happy faces of children and the contented smiles of the elders all make a gathering like this one to be cherished and longed for. Cynthia invited me to a get-together held at her house just now. Wendy came to fetch me and we arrived just in time for dinner to be served. The food was good but what made it even lovelier was the company. I am gratified to have friends like them.
