Enjoy Inspiration Sunday! ;D)



Family Reunion

On only a few short weeks a year do I have my entire core family together; this weekend is one of those weeks. As we anticipate my youngest visiting from the West Coast I am stocking the refrigerator with his favorites and preparing for commotion this week.  

We usually make a few trips out west during the year to visit with him and share in his lifestyle but since his brother lives here, we are never all  together but for a few weeks a year.

It’s so quiet in the house during the year, I forget how the house comes alive with visitors and laughter when he comes home to visit.  Along with him comes all the local friends to stop over and visit and catch up on the years happenings.  

At times I miss the banter during the year but have settled down to a quiet home where everything looks the same in the house when I return home from work…less cleaning, less cooking, etc. 

I do enjoy getting a few extra hugs and squeezes in that I miss all year and I know the week will fly by along with a few extra  miles he will put on the car. 

It’s hard when family is spread across the states; be prepared…pictures will be posting soon.


P.S. A silent message for us all!

Your a good mom! Maybe your son is old enough to pick up after himself and make a few meals for you! ;D)
