It’s autumn, but it’s still pleasant weather here in Northern California—mid 70’s. Our family barbecue today was a blessed time. We were surrounded by salads, chips, barbecued meats, iced teas, sodas, cakes and goodies. The family dug into the feast with much gusto and enthusiasm. I suppose it’s a lot like many other families all over the world.
There’s the teenage nephew who can be so annoying, but makes you smile with his energetic antics.
There’s the brother-in-law that everyone teases because he insists that his mullet hairdo will be back in style soon.
There’s the tech-savvy son-in-law that helps you with your computer and smart phone questions.
There’s the beloved daughter that you sit next to on top of the ice chest and catch up on all her latest work adventures.
Loved ones connecting through stories, jokes and food.
How grateful I am for this day! How grateful I am for a few hours of family love, imperfect but treasured always.
