Well, in Hebrew it would be "mishpachtology" - admit it sounds better.... emoticon
We had a full house this weekend. All the kids home, the bride-and-groom-to-be, the grandlids, my MIL back from the hospital (she had a cardiac pacemaker implanted), my mother invited a friend of hers... well, you see.

Of course, it's wonderful.
But it's hard. Emotionally, more than physically (though I thought I was spending the best part of the day washing the same dishes over and over again).
My daughter the bride is getting very emotional about everything. MIL is still weak, and my DH just realized that his mother is growing old. My mother keeps forgetting more and more things - like, for example, where is the jar of coffee located...

I could really go on and on whining.
No use in this.
I thank God for my wonderful family. For every moment of shared joy. And for the not-so-smooth moments too.
I am so very blessed.

    So nice to have all those generations under one roof for this event!!! (And yes, you WERE washing the same dish over and over again!)

    I didn't think it was whining--just musing. I was at a wedding a few weeks ago and it hit me in a similar way--"I" am now the older generation!

    That is wonderful - even though it sounds like a lot of work! Always be grateful for the time you have together, we never know how long that will be. I hope the rest of the weekend is a little less hectic for you. emoticon emoticon

    I didn't really look at this as whining, but just as recounting your full and busy life. I was a little caught off guard by your comment to that effect. What I really liked was the last two sentences thanking God for your shared joy and blessings.
