Family Reunion

With so much going on in the world our worlds it is not hard to lose sight of what is important. Today I had the pleasure of spending the day with my family at our family reunion and even though there were some that weren’t able to make it, being there in the midst of all of the laughs, food, and love made the day so much better. We all can get so wrapped up in things that don’t or shouldn’t always matter and we put what should be important on the back burner (we’ll talk more about this later) and when we think to come back to it it may be too late. Spending time with and making the memories with family is one of those things that a lot of times we lose sight on and or forget to do and when we think to do it, it can some times be too late. Being around all of my family, and looking at everyone’s faces as they had fun and were enjoying each other made me take a mental snapshot of this one particular moment that we were all able to participate in. We won’t all choose to make certain things a priority in our lives until it is too late, but the one thing in life that will always serve us a purpose and will be the stronghold in our lives (at least for me) is the love of my family. We may bicker with each other, as we all do, but when it’s all said and done memories like these are all worth it. Don’t let life and the things that you’re trying to conquer make you lose sight of what is important, because it is those that are around you that really matter.

I am a woman who is outspoken. I am a woman who loves to speak out her thoughts so that someone somewhere will be able to hear them, and in some way take a piece of that and be able to relate to it. I am a woman of many words, just sit back and read.
