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.
