Legacies


Last weekend I spent some time in Seattle re-connecting with that branch of my family. In past posts, I believe I've written about my brother-in-law and his profound impact on my life. It was because of what I learned from him that I was able to start the journey that I embarked on over 3 years ago to start my life over, find joy and love. His widow, sons, daughter-in-laws and grandchildren were the people who I was most fortunate to be with. I was honored to be able to spend time with the people he loved, and that I loved. Just because I want to, I'm sharing a photo of me with my my 5 young nephews. Every one of them is a honor to their parents and an example in so many way of the legacies that have been left to them. I'm sharing a photo I love, just because I want to!

ohhhhhh, It looks like such a great time. I wish my life was such that I could have gotten away for the trip. I am so glad that you could go.

You look so tiny among those big men. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip.

Yep, my nephews have muscular football player builds, and are great athletes! It is nice to look at the picture, and know I look like a "normal sized" women, amongst the muscular men, who are supposed to be bigger than me. I think too often in the past, I've been bigger than the men, which was definitely NOT the way it should be!

It was fun, in fact I had a BLAST! It's so wonderful to connect with family. What would I do without all my nieces and nephews. They all bring me so much joy.
