Today my mother is 81, and my daughter is bringing Finn over to have a cupcake with her.
And tomorrow the other two are coming in from California. I think my heart can't stretch so far...so much joy filling it!   My daughter is doing geneology of the family, and I think she wants to pick my mother's brain for info....get the story stuff.  I wonder what I'll learn that I didn't know. It should be fun.
This week my whole family will be together. Whole...what a wonderful word...family....wonderful too.
Loving enough to let them all go and live their own lives as they wish
and loving enough to know that when they are gathered together
give thanks for it all.

  7. Your mother is my mothers age. And we shared cupcakes this weekend too. Happy Birthday to yours.
    Family time is priceless, isn't it.

    I have missed so much blog reading and my apologies. It has been so busy here. None the less, you still are one of my favorite reads. Your writing is wonderful and you make me think differently. Thanks.

  13. It is wonderful to have everyone together and as the years pass it becomes more difficult to accomplish! So enjoy your time, and the cupcake, with them! It's always interesting to hear what comes out of the "genealogy" chats!

  15. Happy Belated Birthday to your mom, Suz! Did Finn enjoy his cupcake? How wonderful that your daughter is researching the family history--something I've been wanting to do for a long time...

    I love your blog's new look--especially your photo!

    If you have any tips on how to meditate, I'd love to hear them; a recent turn of events has FORCED me to try and chill :-)
