no butterflies

We have a niece getting married next month (congratulations Danielle & Corey) and I went home for a bridal shower last weekend. I had a great time spending the day with my sisters-in-law. On my drive back home however, thinking back on the day, I was getting so teary-eyed I just about had to pull over and slap myself silly.

In looking back over the years it seems we all sort of went our own way. We spread out in 4 different directions and each got busy with our own lives, children, jobs, etc. Now however, the kids are growing up and starting lives of their own; jobs have come and gone; and it seems like we've come full circle. 

I think as we've grown and learned a few life lessons over time we've come to realize how much we've missed being with family. But like the saying goes "If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies". Talk to someone in your family today :)

Thanks for stopping by...
