COMMENTARY — Tragedy has struck all over our country this past week, from bombs and bomb threats, to explosions, to interstate wrecks. One thing is certain after this week: Life is full of uncertainty. You never know when you’ll be called out. So while we are here, let’s make the most of our journey.
One tradition we have around our household to keep life fun and interesting is going to Sneaky Pete’s every Saturday morning. If we are in town, we know that our weekend plans will always involve our Saturday morning tradition.
Although the food is amazing, it can’t even compete with the fellowship. All six of our family members have favorite items that must be cooked a specific way, which is only properly done by the staff at Sneaky Pete’s. That’s right, they are the only ones who can make my pancakes so good I eat them with my hands, because a fork makes me feel so far away from the flavored goodness. They put the proper ratio of toast to gravy portions for my husband, and the cheese toast and tater tots must be perfect for our sweet little angels.
We often will invite friends to come eat with us for breakfast and everyone leaves there laughing and full.
So what is it about a Saturday morning tradition that keeps us coming back for more? It’s the fellowship. It’s knowing that the people who work there are going to take care of you and really do care what’s happening in your life. The ones we eat with every Saturday are our friends, and yes, we’ve even made friends with all of the other regular Saturday morning patrons.
We have no problem getting the girls to wake up on Saturday mornings because they know that our fun days will always start with our favorite foods and our good friends.
