As a woman of a certain age whose parents are no longer here, I rarely go home. It seems that when I do go and get together with family it is always for a sad occasion. Each time we promise each other that we will get together sooner rather than later. I finally made it for a happy occasion. My Aunt Gladys turned 90 years young, and we came together for this celebration.
As women of a certain age, we should try to get together with family just because. I know my aunt had a wonderful time. There were five generations of her immediate family–so many that we could not get them all together to take a picture. Remember “thisisyourbestyear”. Enjoy your family.
