Family Easter

It was wonderful to see my family over the Easter holiday. There was quite a nice turn out, but my sister, son, and niece were absent and missed. Tony Campolo has spoken about the importance of ritual in holding social groups together. The ritual of holiday gatherings certainly works that way for me. It is so great to spend time together and come away with a sense that our bonds have been celebrated and strengthened.

Joy and I had a great time. Thanks, Susie, for a great meal. Robbie, thanks for the coffee. Mary, the cake was yummy (gained 4 pounds). Can’t wait for our next get together.

    WOW I love the group shot near/ at the end! That’s one of the best group shots we’ve had in a long time! In fact, we’ve been really bad about getting family photos over the past few years. Cheers to picking up that tradition again!
