I'm going away for the weekend to spend time with my family - parents and siblings - as we come together to help my brother's family deal with their loss. My sister-in-law, Diane, lost her father suddenly this week and they are flying home for his services.
Since they live in Seattle, we don't get to see one another as often as we'd like, and as their time here is limited, we are trying to find some moments in the midst of sadness to celebrate our love for one another and the gift of being a close family.
Here in Kansas the promise is for a picture-perfect, "October Bright Blue" weekend. I wish you all a safe and wonderful few days, no matter what the weather brings. Enjoy your time, enjoy each other and remember your own gifts and blessings.
'til we meet again...
