Love Around Me
It saddens me to watch the kids get older and one by one leave the nest to explore adulthood. The breakfast table is reducing in size... the chatter is replaced by laptops and xbox. The one moment I have their complete attention is when I'm cooking... the aroma beckons them to step into my world to see all that is being mixed in the wok. They hover...and question "when is it going to be ready" I pretend to get annoyed at the hovering but deep down, I'm liking it - the attention - even if it's through food, I'll take it.
