For the love of family

(a quick sketch from a
photo of Steven and the boys
when Sam was a baby. I like
the exhausted Dad look
on Steven's face, and
the wide awake look on the
boys' faces.) 

I found this little sketch which sums up my feelings. It was my
husband Steven's birthday today, and an incredibly beautiful November 8.
The weather was too hot to wear a sweater for most of the day, and then
warm enough that with some warm clothes you could still sit outside as
the sun was setting.

It was so wonderful to have our whole family together and to be able to make
everyone comfortable socially distanced. We had champagne and birthday cake
made by Megan, my daughter-in-law, and my four-year-old granddaughter, Alice.
ice cream and coffee, with milk for the kids We sang happy birthday to Megan,
to me, to my son Sam, and to my husband. A  lot of Happy Birthday, and it has
been a lot of happy birthdays.  I hope you had a super day too. This little drawing
shows how lovely life can be with the family. It certainly was today. 

Have a good week.
