Today was the family reunion and I had a blast!!! Mom didn't come, and it was good, because it did rain, both at the party and (HARD!) on the way home. It would have freaked her out. I was so touched that they waited for us to do the ceremonial cake and tea! They didn't get my e-mail that Mom wasn't coming, so they had a parking spot for us in the driveway with Mom's name on it! Everyone was so nice - all of us on our best behaviour! I had 3 people tell me that I looked great (Janet, Joanne & Scott) and I think they really meant it! That made me so happy. I guess I really wanted someone to notice, but I don't think my loss is noticeable yet, so I didn't expect it. The (mainly) 2 generations are getting to know each other a lot better now, so things clicked much better than last year. As expected, the food was great. For me, Julie's cheesecake was a lifesaver because I was really in the mood for dessert - plus it was not only low fat/calorie, it was also delicious! Jason & Marta brought me some cherries just because they knew I loved them - I thought that was really sweet! Well, it was a wonderful day and even thought I was looking forward to it - it was BETTER than I ever expected! I was so happy that Julie had a good time - no, not happy, ecstatic! I really wanted her to have fun, after all, if it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have been able to go at all. So, thank you "a million" (LOL), Julie! I owe it all to you! Good night all. I wish everyone could feel as content as I do tonight! Thank you, God, for all the wonderful people in my life.
