Families Are Precious
Wednesday, June 25, 2014
I have 4 daughters, 6 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter and 1 great grandson on the way.
This past weekend we've had a joyous family reunion to which our 4 daughters from across the country ( California, Texas, Oklahoma, Kentucky) and 3 granddaughters (California, Texas and Oklahoma) came to our retirement community here in Kentucky. We had 4 wonderful days together and the climax was a big family dinner here in our two-bedroom patio home. My husband made homemade noodles and cooked a delicious roast and I made salad, green beans and a chocolate cake. It was wonderful cooking for 10 instead of for two. What made me so pleased was how health-conscious they all were. When I asked what they'd like to drink most said "water". Then they really went for the vegetables and salad and ate just small portions of the meat. Of course, their Dad's homemade noodles stole the show and they had to go back for seconds on them, because they are a rare family tradition. God has blessed us so much with a healthy, happy family and we are so grateful for
the love, joy, laughter and memories shared this weekend.
