There were sooooo many things that brought a smile to my face and made me happy on Friday and Saturday, that I'll just list a few of them here.
--Getting to see my "favorite" cousin Pam again.
--Pam and I corrupting a new generation of family. We have a cousin named John who loves Monty Python and the Holy Grail, but hasn't read any of the Hitchhiker's Books. We told him to run to a library as soon as he got home and check them out. Or we may go in and buy him the complete set for his next birthday.
--Getting to see family and catch-up with them.
--That Chad and Jada have seen the "light of Buffy-goodness" and crossed over.
--Playing in the pool with Davis and Gracelyn. Davis loved the pool and was content to float in his little floatation ring and "splash" the water for hours on end.
--The sheer energy of the younger children and how they try to get us older people to join in the fun and games, sometimes to our own injury.
--So many family members coming up and offering kind words, support, hugs, smiles and love.
--The food...dear heavens, I may have gained five pounds but it was sooooooo good!
Those are just a few of the random things from the reunion.
And now, for today's reasons to be happy.
--Getting to see my old church family. Catching up a bit with my buddies from the prayer breakfast.
--The new eductational wing of the church looks fantastic.
--Seeing B, L, BB, GG and having lunch with them and the Beaver family--Les, Ann, Benjamin and Ainsley.
--Choir at church did Lord of the Dance, one of my favorite songs they do.
So, it's more than one reason, but I'm hoarding them up for now.
