Building Together

For Christmas my sister and my daughter bought this ginger bread house kit. The house was suppose to be altogether and all you had to do was decorate it. The box however had been crushed and the house inside was in small pieces. My daughter and I spent the next hour slowly gluing the walls and roof back together with icing (the tastiest glue). Then she decorated it. If you look at the house you can make out some of the places where we repaired it. I had a lot of fun rebuilding this little house with my daughter. Maybe more fun than she did decorating it.

This little house reminds me of relationships. Sometimes life can crush them but if everyone involved is willing to work at you can rebuild them and have fun doing it.
