It is a lovely day, a little cool but we are in winter. I had a marvelous time last weekend with family as we celebrated; I think everyone had a good time. I enjoyed seeing everyone and saw some people that I have not seen for years. Family and gatherings are always good for me, maybe not all people can say that but our family has been able to work thru any ‘rough spots’ that come along. I pray for families and the ‘ideal’ of family. Maybe there is no ideal family, but each of us can work toward living as children of God and make our world a better place.
