Making time to get together

August 11, 2013

Thank you, Mother Nature, for the beautiful day last Sunday. It was family reunion time here on the hilltop. Wonderful weather, great food and relaxed visiting among family members made for a great time. The attendance this year was down due to several members being required to work on this day, vacations and so many of the younger generations having more interesting things to do instead of a traditional family gathering. Those of us here had a good time and a delicious dinner. Having a family reunion is almost a lost happening with all the other distractions this time of year. Back when we didn't have much social contact with others and we lived a much quieter life, everyone went to the reunion, just to catch up on the happenings of other family members and it was of the few summer attractions. Now, it is too easy to catch up on Facebook or the cellphone. Time marches on.
