Family Friday: Family Gatherings

Happy Family Friday!

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday.  Much of my immediate family was able to come over to my house to help us celebrate our last Thanksgiving in our current home.  It was bittersweet.  There were plenty of family members that could not be with us due to distance.  And, there were others that have since passed on that were also missed.

Today, I find myself reflecting on the beauty of family and times we gather together.  We had a house-full when we moved in almost nine years ago.  We cooked for many every day, not just during the holidays.  Now that it's just the three of us, we love gathering with family that much more.  It was wonderful to have everyone over yesterday and I'm already looking forward to Christmas.  In fact, I'm looking forward to our vacation next year where more than 20 of us will gather to travel across the country together!  It'll be crazy and hectic and stressful and wonderful!

I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday and are spending some dedicated time with friends/family.

Be open to what comes.
