Yes, it's yet another dreary early-spring day in Ohio. . . Folks around here are comparing their sinus probs and wishing for bright warm days! I just had to counteract our mid-March gloom by posting another cheery Florida photo from our recent sojourn down south.
Daughter Stephanie and I have been cooking up plans for Easter Sunday. It will be at her home.
Our holiday celebration will include four generations. Of those people, between our side of the family and Stephanie's husband's side, we have a grand total of 4 family members in the
85-and-over demographic. On the other end of the spectrum our grandchildren are 15 to 22 yrs old. With Stephanie and hubby on the brink of middle-age, that leaves Grandpa and me, plus our co-grandparents (our son-in-law's parents) as the "younger" oldies, all of us in our 60s now.
Our family members, therefore, have been born all the way from 1919 until 1993. Our birthdays scatter across more than 7 decades of American history, and it looks like we will have representatives in this society for many decades to come. Have you ever tallied your own families' investments in time and place? Imagine all the good things our ancestors and even ourselves have contributed toward life in these United States!
It's so good to have traditions, and the very best one of them is. . . family!
