Last weekend, my husband Ron and I spent quality time with my family.
‘Twas a real ‘meeting of the clan’; literally dozens of relatives- from tots to seniors- all gathered around the barbie.
What made it so special? Firstly, given the commitments of everyday life, it’s a rare event to assemble together so many. Secondly, which perhaps should have come first, the atmosphere was amazing: full of love.
Genuine smiles, kind words, hugs and kisses abounded: family bonds, nurtured and strengthened.
It came as a shock to me, seeing how time’s passage had changed many individuals, and it’s impossible to say whether this is starkest on the little ones, the middle aged, or the seniors. Yet, for a few lucky ladies, it’s as though time had stood still: had ceased to operate visibly. Surely, life is treating them kindly!
