Value family...

Monday, June 24, 2013

My husband and I were invited to the 90th birthday party for a woman in our church. We brought my Mum, who turned 87 just last month and was the main reason we left CA and moved to SC. I didn't want her to be totally alone after her second husband died. Burying two husbands in 11 years was really shattering for her! We went to the party which was held at the woman's daughters place on a beautiful lake and over 80 of her family were there! The birthday gal had had 8 kids, they'd married and had kids, so there were kids, grand-kids, greats, and great-great grand-kids! It was totally amazing to see a family so large and still so close to each other. We had a tiny family, then my husband and I couldn't have kids, so the only family I have is my beloved and Mum. If you can count family as one of life's greatest blessings, it will be a blessing indeed!
