My son, my daughter-in-law and I headed north on the highway this evening, back to the large city I grew up in. We were traveling to my mom's home for the weekend. Meeting up with my sister and her family and tomorrow another sister and her husband fly in.
I so enjoy our time together. We stay in touch through computers and cell phones, but we really value our time in person. It is usually relaxed with lots of laughter.
Tonight I reflected on just how blessed I am to have this family. Conversation flowed freely. Connections flourish. Family.
