Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It's learning to look past life's imperfections

Ladies day lunch, What love looks like

A lot happened the past 10 days or so….
I spent the weekend in Indianapolis with my daughter Rachel and her family. My grandson Hayden, had a touch of that nasty flu bug. He’s such a little love bug. Hayden was a preemie baby, due in January and born in October 2 years ago. He’s a bit behind in weight and development so it is wonderful to see the changes and improvements each visit. He is the image of his daddy Adam. Every once in a while I see some of our gene pool but he’s his Daddy’s clone!
Sunday we were planning our family’s new tradition of Ladies Day Lunch. Most of us live within 30 minutes of each other but, with work and children we go months with out seeing each other. We always say “we have to get together more often” time goes by, life gets in the way and it doesn’t happen. Well, 20th of December 07 Rachel called us. She has been diagnosed with uterine cancer. Needless to say a lot of priorities have shifted. She has missed the past gatherings, treatments and such she tires easily and makes traveling difficult. So, they all drove 2 hours and brought Ladies Day Lunch to her. It was wonderful we had lunch at an Irish pub, and the waiter took this photo of us all. We were missing only my daughter-in-law, 2 of my sister-in-laws and 3 nieces. I just sat there for a bit looking around the table at all of us gathered, different shapes, personalities, but one family. It was a reminder of what’s truly important, this is what love looks like.

  1. That's wonderful that you all are able to get together for luncheons like that! My family lives too spread out, however Jason's family pretty much all lives here in town.


Hey! Thanks for stopping in I love hearing from my bloggy friends!
