Last year at this time I had 2 out of 3 kids wandering the globe and I think I finally opted out of the annual feast in response. This year the house is yet again full, and the extended family arrives tomorrow afternoon to eat drink and be merry. But the circle of life inevitably means that over the years the numbers do dwindle until the younger generation begins to establish their own families.
So before the crowd descends on my house tomorrow - I am taking a moment to revel in the opportunities that have come my way. I will always be grateful to the Facebook Friend who suggested a 6 word memoir for me. "I am prepared to be amazed"
