family reunion

Most often we think of large extended family gatherings when hearing that term. But after being gone for over a week, my husband and son returned from a trip. What a sweet family reunion! Here are a few of my favorite things:

1. seeing them walk in the door

2. that first hug and kiss hello

3. hearing about the trip

4. finding out how my son did with a broken collarbone

5. listening to both their stories and adventures

6. my husband's whiskers

7. fixing them a nice dinner

8. having them home again

9. knowing they are not leaving again for a while

10. the feeling of unity again
