When our children were small – we used to play a game at the dinner table – found in a movie with Bruce Willis and Michelle Pfeiffer called, “The Story of Us” – the game was called, ‘High-Low’.

The object of this game is to encourage conversation – even in the youngest member sitting at the table.  Someone starts and could say, “Today my ‘high’ was getting a pedicure – and my ‘low’ was losing my keys” – It could be as simple as that – or you could expand on your points – as your personality and mood strikes you that day.  We found that it caused everyone in our home to evaluate their day – reflect on only the best and the worst moment and then to share – it helped with the endless, ‘How was your day, dear?’ to their one word answer – ‘fine’.

After a few years – our daughter (4 years older than her brother) caught on to the ‘purpose’ of the ‘game’ – trying to provoke conversation from our pre-adolescent child – and she shut down and began to poke fun at the ‘game’ – and then of course – our son followed suit.  *Sigh* – it was great while it lasted.

“The Story of Us’ – is a journey of one couple in love – but troubled.  They have a typical story – meet when they are young – fall in love and get married – have a couple of children – settle into a routine – and find that slowly they have drifted apart.  Their story is heart-warming, poignant and full of pain.  It is the journey back to self discovery – and back to what’s important – each other.  The ending will make you cry – as they discover at the end of the day – and the end of the relationship – they still love each other.  Michelle’s speech at the end should have won her an academy award.  Below is a music video with some of the pictures and scenes from the movie – and I encourage you to watch this if you’ve ever gone through trauma in your own marriage – and have ever contemplated ‘throwing in the towel’ and giving up.

I pray that you too will find that at the end of your day – and your journey – that you will remember what was really important – be able to throw out the yucky bad stuff and concentrate on the most important – love. And have your own ‘story’ to tell.
