I know, I’ve been missing for a week. Do you want to know what I did? Well, I’ll tell you about it anyway :) I went to Ohio to visit family. We had a little reunion of sorts, as we do every year. Both of my sisters and my brother were there. Most of the kids were there. At one time we had 30 people at a cookout/barbecue. That number included a couple of people who are family in spirit if not blood and missed a couple who couldn’t make it.
I really don’t have time to write much – as soon as I finish this I have a week’s worth of work email to dig through so I have to be very brief. The long story short, a good time was had by all. I spent a lot of time talking to family members. I spent time doing stuff with them. We talked nature, books, movies, writing, art, science, technology, travel, the past, the future, the present and all sorts of other stuff, including even those taboo topics of politics and religion.
I’m glad I don’t have to see them every day, but it is good to see family face to face instead of by phone, text or computer.
So that’s my smile for this week: Family.
