This evening we had our big family meal at my cousin’s house and we just got home a few minutes ago. We had such a nice time, as always. Good food and lots of laughter. I had meant to take a lot of pictures but never got around to it. My mom had brought a disposable camera with just a couple of pictures left after their recent trip to Branson that she wanted to use up and get developed. Yes, as in real film, y’all! She asked me to take a picture of them and while I was at it I used my phone to take the one above, too.
I’m so thankful for my wonderful parents and all the rest of my family, too. Many at our family gatherings aren’t even really related – kind of hard to explain in a short blog post – but they are family just the same. I am truly blessed to be a part of this big clan which chooses to be a family.
