The Power of the Family


Sitting here reminiscing about two very special family reunions that my family and I attended.  We are still deliriously happy and joyous from our “love fest” with those we care so much about.  One was held during a weekend in June and another during a weekend in August.  As I remember the love and the bonding, it becomes abundantly clear that not much can match those moments in time we shared with family.  Whether it has been multiple years or just a few since you connected with family members, it is still all too precious when you meet for some face time – chatting, hugging, smiling, giggling, hugging some more, and all the other fun things family do when they get together.  If you have never experienced a family reunion, now is the time to initiate one.  If you do, then you know exactly what I’m talking about.  I oftentimes am told from friends how they attempted to coordinate a reunion but either fell short or failed to keep it going.  My advice:  try and try again.  It is well worth it.  The planning and all that goes into hosting a reunion is so worth the effort.  It is done with love and care.  One was a small gathering with slightly over 20 and another totaling over 180.  Nonetheless, small or large, they were ultra special and so very precious.  We left the reunions with one thing on our minds – marking our calendars for next year; putting everything aside for those particular weekends because none of us can think of anything else we’d rather be doing than “hanging out” with our family.  It’s all about love.  Try it on for size; it will fit every time!
