Sharing my life

Summer’s early weeks have passed, and we are approaching the July 4th celebration. Our weather has been cool and wet, with many days of crisp sunshine to get outdoors and drink in my community. I have enjoyed the busy streets and cafes of the vacation area that I live in, and I am able to share all of this with my family as each of them visits in the weeks ahead.

I so love to visit each of my children in their homes, getting to know their communities, friends, and activities. And now that our home is settled and familiar, they are adding to their memories of Grandma’s house and my world here in Door County. It is a gift to have time together, to build memories, and to know one another so intimately.

As one of my daughters and her family embark on a new life many miles away, I look forward to first hearing about their lives as they develop there; and then to visit and become a part of that world with them also. The circle always stretches, and strengthens as it does.
