The last few weeks have been filled with back-to-back, wall-to-wall family time.
I’m talking far-away family. This was drop everything and savor the moment family time.
First there were cousin adventures here on the farm with kitties and hammocks and games. Eating mulberries from the trees, throwing rocks in the pond, and chasing chickens fun.
And then, we had one last family reunion at Poppa and Nana’s house before they moved into a senior living apartment. All of my husband’s siblings and almost all of our children gathered to remember times past and make new memories.
Cousins, friends from birth, had one last time to hang out in the basement family room they claimed as their own, to play games on the hill in the front yard, to look through toys and books and take home treasures from Poppa -Nana’s house.
Three generations for one last time at the “big house”.
We filled those walls with laughter!
So many memories.
Locations may change.
But love remains.
And all is well.
