Family Ties That Embrace

The past week has been for me a good example of Psalm 23:5 …” my cup runneth over ” . In this period of time my son and his wife have travelled from their urban domicile up here to the hinterlands. We had several good days together and were even blessed by the companionship of the world’s most talkative feline, my first grancat, Galadriel. Due to their schedules and the distance between us we see each other about twice a year so a Christmas visit was an extra special treat. Definitely good times !

This week my 4 sisters made their semi-annual trip from their scattered homes to our west, coming this time in 2 waves since one brother-in-law was able to come also . Just to prove that miracles do happen all around us, the Mello Yello    htmghtml224 express rolled in with afresh supply of the golden nectar. Heartfelt  thanks to each of  you for your contributions in that regard. Alas, they could only spend a few hours so we  made certain to pack that time full of food, fun, storytelling and as much frivolity as we  could muster . Sisses, it is never a dull moment when you  come and  the wife and I certainly enjoyed it.

So, I am most assured that my family ties do not bind but rather bring us all closer together .

Shalom !

  2. For those unfortunate enough to have missed it, Mello Yello is a citrus flavored soft drink introduced in 1979 by our friends at Coca- Cola .
