I’ve been trying to come up with something profound to say in the aftermath of Christmas. Can’t come up with a single profound thing. I think it’s because my mind is too full thinking about the blessings in my life!!
There is a HUGE age difference between my kids and their cousins. I mean my youngest child is 16 and the closest cousin is 10. We’ve been spending the holiday with my baby sister and her family in San Antonio, Texas. Her oldest child is 8. Like I said- HUGE age difference. They have all done such a great job hanging out this week. Tonight, we did dinner on the Riverwalk and then simply wandered down the river a bit. There were five “kids” ranging from 21 down to 5 in our merry little band and there was not one complaint. When feet started to hurt we simply turned and headed to the vans.
No one in my extended family would claim to be perfect. But tonight I got one perfect experience. We laughed ALOT, enjoyed a great meal – if you’re ever in San Antonio check out Lonestar Cafe – and great conversation. We took pictures both serious and silly and hated to see the evening end.
Like I said, we aren’t perfect. But tonight I got to enjoy watching some kids I’m pretty crazy about enjoying one another and the adults that were there. I was reminded again that I am truly blessed.
