I just returned from vacation. Most of my siblings have beaten me to blogging, but I still want to record a few thoughts. Even though there was occassionally not even standing room, even though the mosquitos were fierce, even though it rained much of the time, even though some of that rain made it in the tent, even though our normal routine was totally thrown askew, I love to be with my family. I hugged the ones that came, and missed the ones who didn't. I guess the days are gone where everyone will be there, but I miss them just the same.
Highlights besides visiting were fishing with my brother-in-law and nephew and trips into the hills either by vehicle or on foot.
For all those I didn't see, hug, laugh and cry with, I love you all as well.
