Remembering back to my childhood the best family times in the Leland Timm family household were Sunday dinners and game time. At those two times you could usually count on all family members being around the table, even my work-aholic father. I don't remember if I had that "gotta win or I'm going to cry" attitude (like I do today🤥) but I look back at it now as my happiest times in the family I grew up.
I am thankful for family fun time, game night, the creators of fun games, and the companies that get the games out to us to enjoy. Of course the almighty dollar is at work in there but I am a fan of commerce as well so we will just call that a bonus.
The picture above is the bulk of the games we play in the Robert Timm household but then there are a few more in a lesser accessible storage for games that only two or three in the family like to play. Thinking back to my childhood there were far less board games but we seemed to know a whole lot of card games that we would play on end.
My Grandma Timm lived with us and she loved to play Kings in the corner. I think I liked Whist when I was a little older but Go To The Dump was my favorite as a child. Grandma was always up for a game even if no one else was.
So in the Robert Timm household we play a game every evening after diner and twice on Sunday (after lunch and after diner). Game time let's us laugh together and also share our days with each other. I know for me it lead to many friendships and friendship circles when I was on my own. I believe it has also carried over to my daughter now that she lives on her own and what father wouldn't be happy knowing that his son or daughter knows ways to have fun with friends without hanging out at a bar or elsewhere that may lead to trouble?
Among the list of things to be thankful for is the challenge put forth by Debe Maxwell, CRS to share ten things we are thankful for. Here is her challenge.
