We were with friends for dinner last week and the discussion turned to family. One of our party had recently celebrated a birthday and there was a party with a tent and great food and all his family in attendance - nieces, nephews, grandchildren, etc. There were some close friends there as well, probably 60 people in all. A really nice party.
Well our discussion touched on this recent event and the statement was made: "That's really what it's all about, right? Family and friends." Indeed.
We're preparing for our daughter's family to arrive for a nice long visit this week.I can hardly wait to get them here because it means not only will we see them, we'll get to see all the other family more frequently. Because its summer and the kids will be out of school and the days will be long and warm. And when we're not with family we'll be with friends, because there's plenty of socializing in the summer.
Family and friends.It really is what it's all about!
