The Love of a Family.....

When my parents past away they left me a very wealthy woman. No I am not a millionaire -but I am wealthy beyond belief from the love of my family. You see my parents instilled in us all -14 of us-the importance of sticking together, loving each other, being together, having fun together and always putting it a priority to get together. Easter weekend was no exception ,all of us (except Wyatt who is in Afghanistan) were together all weekend. Saturday we had every minute planned with fun!! We started the day meeting a friends new grandbaby - thanks Kaye,Leslie,Beth & Hattie for including us in greeting your precious new family member! Then on to lunch at Jasons Deli - yum yum! The afternoon was our creative activity.There is a new place in town that you go and paint the pottery and they fire it for you and you go back and pick it up. We had a blast painting -plates, salt& pepper shakers, piggy banks, platters, utensil holder, coasters. WE visited, painted, visited and painted some more. We highly recommend it for you or your family.We will be going back! Once we got started we didn't want to stop. The evening was filled with eating at Joe and Sarahs. We celebrated Joshs 30th Birthday with a bang! The cousins got him the funniest DADDY shirt. They thought he could wear it to the hospital when the baby comes -the cousins are so excited to have a new baby cousin coming in September. We then all went bowling. You must understand for some of us we haven't bowled in about 10 years -so it was a sight to behold and a good laugh. Brenda and I are proud we were consistently at the bottom of the scores - we were a team , maybe someone knew we were not very good! We had several in the group that took bowling in college for a PE class. They were too good I guess they thought we were going to give them a grade or something. We had a fun time laughing with each other. Sunday Morning found us on two rolls of pews in our church. The same church our parents joined 55 years ago and the only one my brother, sister and me have ever been a member of. It is a special place for us. Our church and the faith in God is what our parents made sure was a foundation for our family and still is today even after 55 years.

Yes I am a wealthy woman.



The Love of a Family is lifes greatest Blessing...
