The party was a smashing sucess I am so tired and wornout. I will put up pictures later. Talk to you all soon.
Okay so I’m doing it again. I am having a family potluck at my house today. In just a few short hours I will have over 40 people in my home. We are celebrating ,a little late, Ryan’s 26th birthday and his home coming and of course Mother’s day. Because who is coming to this shin dig? Why, everybody and their mother of course!
I love having these get together’s. Everybody comes and eats and visits and that is it. They expect no entertainment, no organization, they don’t even expect me to prepare all the food. It is simply my home that they want. A place to gather and spend time together. They never leave it dirty, they even wash all the dishes! So I have time to walk around and visit with them too, which a hostess seldom does. The most wonderful thing about it is the age group it spans. There will be people here today ranging from their 70’s to a four month old baby and everyone knows each other and treats everyone else like family.
So the yards are clean the house is spotless the food that I am bringing to the preverbal table is ready to prepare and the dogs are washed. The only thing left is to open my door to them, my extended family. There will be grandparents, mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, aunts and uncles, in laws and steps, nieces and nephews, friends of the family which of course make them family. So many that we love. So I’m off, to do the final preparations and to open my door……
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you. God bless you and yours.
