I haven’t played Risk in years.
But my daughter and her husband came for Shabbat, and we sat down and had a great game.
We distributed the countries.
Placed our enemies.
And went to battle, army to army.
By the time it was over, my daughter had conquered Europe, Africa, and North and South Americas.
It was so good to see her taking country after country from my son-in-law and me.
My son-in-law joked that he had underestimated her.
We had a good laugh and nice time just sitting down at the kitchen table and playing a board game.
Afterward, we went down to the pool and relaxed in the deck chairs and then my wife and I took off our shoes and walked in the grass in the garden.
I laid down on the beautiful green lawn and looked up watching some planes jet over in the clear blue sky.
It was absolutely beautiful weather and a marvelous day today with my family.
In the morning we went to Synagogue and the sit-down kiddush with our friends.
I am grateful to G-d for all this and for the peace of the wonderful Shabbat!
Also, what more can a man ask for Father’s Day. 😉
