As my family gets older and more geographically and age spread out, it becomes increasingly difficult to find time to get together and visit. When that opportunity does arrive, I want to make certain that I grab it with both hands.
This past Sunday, I had the opportunity to have family time with my 2 sons and wonderful daughter-in-law (as well as hubby). I feel so blessed to be able to have the whole day to visit, hug, walk, cook, eat, and talk, talk, talk. Everything else that I usually schedule for that Sunday found another time slot or got dropped altogether.
When I know family events are coming up, I look forward to them and make plans to enjoy the days to the fullest. I know that this summer I will see some of my family on a trip to Europe that my brother is heading up. This will be a glorious time for which I am already making plans. I also hope and expect to visit with some of my family at some other time – not yet determined. I love my family time.
