Well, in Hebrew it would be "mishpachtology" - admit it sounds better....
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.
