Today I am grateful for family gatherings. As we gathered today to celebrate Nate's birthday (and mine) everyone was together in one place. It doesn't happen often enough to suit me. It is so fulfilling to watch my kids, kids-in-law, and grandsons interact. I'm sure most mothers would agree with me. The best of times are times spent with all the family spending time together. Thank you kids, for spending time together with us today!
