I had such a wonderful weekend. I don't see my family that often so when we get together, we have a great time. Lots of laughter! I got an idea from Krista Ewert's blog about writing on the inside of the placecards, why we are thankful for that person. It went over very well and even made my mom cry. We always look forward to that! LOL I sometimes wish my family lived closer but wonder if I would appreciate these times together the way I do? Does absence really make the heart grow fonder? Perhaps this is just the way it's supposed to be? You raise your children and off they go to make their own lives. I think about other cultures where generations stay together, often in one household. What is it about the western culture that makes us all so independent? So many families I know would not even live within a block of each other,let alone the same house!!!

It is what it is. Something to think about.


  1. I am so glad you had a good time with your family. Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Hey, and your music started automatically. Yeah!

  3. We sure wish we lived closer to family - especially at any holidays.


I truly appreciate your comments and look forward to reading them!
