The lights went out last night. In less than 0.3 seconds my entire family was in my room with me.

There is something funny about that to me. The lack of electricity brought us all together so quickly.  It makes me wonder if more dads shouldn’t purposely, though secretly, flip the breaker switch every so often- especially in families who could use a little more together time.

I do know why all my family rushed to where I was, instead of me rushing to them. I had my phone on me.

And a sweet-awesome, very bright flashlight app.

This whole episode reminded me that people desire light. When our house went dark my kids naturally searched for the source of the light they saw.  The darkness was uncomfortable and lonely – even for those who were together at the time of the failure.

We crave the comfort of the light.
