Have you ever wondered how difficult life would be without a friend or family to pick us up when we fall…to tell us that “everything will be alright.”
Many of us in the baby boomer age bracket have lost their mothers…some recently. And isn’t the one thing we miss so much is having our mothers reassure us “that everything will be alright.” A mother’s hug and verbal reassurance leaves other sources of support far behind in the dust.
And isn’t it wonderful when we have friends who, for all intents and purposes, ARE family. They are like the sister or brother we never had. I am so lucky to have many more siblings in my journey through life…and I love being a member of a big family.
So Saturday, yesterday, was wonderfully filled with family and then some more family friends. These days are such treasures. They arrived in the form of dance recitals (Eva Cate) and art exhibits (Anne Peterson) and Memorial Day cook-outs (Mandy and John.) All memories secured forever.
Watch and enjoy all the fun…it started Friday afternoon when I went to Mt. Pleasant to rehearsal practice for the Tapio Dance recital.
A few winks later we got ready to go to the morning dance recital.
The exhibit was bustling with people and lots of fun! Congratulations to all the artists!
Then back to Mt Pleasant for a Memorial Day cook -out at John and Mandy’s!
