Well the house is quiet again, everyone has gone back to their homes. Whoever said silence is golden has never lived life to its fullest. This weekend our house was much like it used to be when the kids were were all living here......LOUD! It is not a bad loud it is a good loud, and in every room you could hear laughter. There was dancing, play fighting, and lots of goading that lasted long into the night, but what made it more special was to see the grand kids joining in. Everyone took part in holding them, cooing at them, and just loving all over them. Like the song goes, we got joy, joy, joy, joy down in our souls, down in our souls......that's what it feels like to be apart of this family, our joy is always overflowing. One of the greatest things was to see Christina be apart of it all, she really missed out when she got married, and left home early. It's great to see her laughing and really enjoying being apart of the family again (If only Chris had got to share it). I love my family, and I feel really proud when I watch them enjoying each others company, it makes my heart very full. I only hope it won't be so long until the next time we are together.
