Content. A full heart. Blessed. Tired but a good tired. These are all words that describe how I feel right now. All is quiet this evening as I sit and reflect on the last 5 days events and the days of busyness that lead up to the last 5 days. Preparations for our families reunion began weeks ago. With each day prior to our dear ones arrival being filled with things that needed to be accomplished and finished. Leaving not a whole lot of time to find myself near a computer or able to be submersed in a good book. Time only for "doing". So that is what I have been doing is "doing". With the weeks winding down and everything readied for our guests arrival the only thing to do was to wonder how the reunion would come off. This, I left to itself and figured what happens happens. Our home received 20 guests, not counting myself and my husband. I saw my home serve its purpose-the one that it had been built for 62 years ago by a local family in our small town. Our home was built to be an entertainer and entertain it did! The living room held 15 comfortably and the grounds allowed for everyone to move around and visit. There was plenty of counter space to put out all sorts of wonderful food and the huge sliding glass door allowed the outside in and made it easy for all to move through without walking through the middle of those visiting in the living room. I spent a good amount of my time in the kitchen making sure everyone had plenty to eat and drink and made my rounds to check on dear ones both inside and out to make sure that all were comfortable. I did steal a few moments in the kitchen to myself and just stopped and listened. Listened to the humm of different conversations between groups, laughter, the squeal of a little one passing through from the front lawn to the back lawn, many dear ones all together in my home. All was right this weekend. Our home served its purpose again, as it has in years past and we had happy loved ones close together, enjoying themselves-what a wonderful thing to be able offer and give. Yes, hard work and I am so tired but it was all so worth it.
