Family Time

“You don’t choose your family.  They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.” -Desmond Tutu

It’s the last day of July and I realized I haven’t posted this month. I recently got back from a special trip visiting family in England.  Here is a collection of memories captured in our hearts:

Anxiety before traveling soothed by precious times with family
Cooking vegetarian meals from around the world together
Dancing to Bob Marley while cooking – “Don’t worry be happy”
Singing to the Beatles bringing back childhood memories
Letting go of worries, embracing family love

Sweet experience of picking Georgie up at school seeing kids run with delight when teachers point to their family
Enjoying a polo match together listening to the thunder of horses’ hooves
Flying paper airplanes with Georgie giving them back to Uncle Gary for reconstruction
Watching Georgie and Uncle Gary walk hand in hand

Feeling comfort from being together
Walking around Stroud taking in its old history and charm
Strolling through a peaceful walk at Rococo Gardens in Painswick
Shooting pool, bowling together, celebrating my birthday on the last night
Pleasure of being in the moment, not worrying about yesterday or tomorrow

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed 📖 your family time recollections Michele. The images you captured are crisp and picturesque. I caught the uplifting Bob Marley song reference too. You share the best heartfelt goodies. Nothing tops f-a-m-i-l-y!!!
