I've been missing you ... but missing for good reason: I've just returned from a glimpse of heaven. I spent a short time with my parents and ALL of my siblings. Little sleep ... lots of fun.
My parents throw an annual Christmas Egg Nog Party ("non-alcoholic of course", as they would say)They began this tradition in 1972 (the last time all the siblings were present for the party) as a gift to their community as well as a way to help us, their children, learn to serve and to socialize. It's a lot of work AND a lot of fun. More details on the Egg Nog Party in future posts. For now, just imagine how joyful it was for me to be a kid again in my parents' home with all of my brothers & sisters ... it was glorious.
Here we are in 1977 followed by a picture taken just a few days ago:
