Day 31, January 31

Our family is gathering this week for our third son Hyrum's wedding.  The Scots (where I have roots) might refer to this as the gathering of the clan.  Our oldest son Rob, his wife Jenny, and their two sons Brigham and Isaac are here.  In another day, our second son Steve and his wife Melinda will arrive.

We are a noisy, boisterous, and hungry bunch.  Insults are traded; food is consumed; laughter shared.  The washing machine will be going full time.  And I wouldn't have it any other way.

Our cat Harley is even now seeking a quiet place.  She has traded following patches of sunlight for the safety and security found beneath a chair.  (Sometimes I am tempted to join her.)

So, for today, I am grateful for family.


  1. We recently had the clan over to our house after Jenny's baptism. 6 adults (2 couldn't make it) and 15 kids (all of them could). I love it, and sometimes want to find Harley as well!

  2. We are grateful for you Jane. Thanks for taking care of my little Reynna on Tuesday.


  3. Yeah for you...............We are going to be in OKC for Hannah's baptizm........isn't it fabulous to have a "gathering of the clans" and see your peeps who are far away. Please Enjoy and eat well and prosper....Harley will recover...............

  4. I'm glad that the family will be together. Good luck fighting Harley for a spot under the chair.
