We are one day closer to our family reunion.  Tomorrow will be a time together to chat, eat and view the panorama of life.  Those from 94 to those just over 1 year old will descend upon our chosen venue.

There will be the older generations remembrances.   Our daughter will meet relatives she’s never met before.  The grandchildren will be the center of a number of conversations and comments. 

But for tonight, we walked the neighbourhood, talked to friends and saw the grandchildren head to bed quickly and quietly.  We’ll see if a day filled with new people and new experiences winds them up tomorrow.  If so, may the clock quickly unwind and may they rest comfortably, as they are doing tonight.
