The visit

I'm a little sad. And a little drunk.

But I am a lot happy and grateful. Thank you, D and G.

Thanks for the sake.
The groceries.
The games.
The chopping.
For holding the baby while I cooked.
The compliments.
The cheerful "Good morning!"'s
The passing on of family heirloooms.
The books.
The ability to go with the flow.
The word play.
The hairspray sacrifices.
The late night.
And, finally, the invaluable and simple understanding, as only a family can offer.

So, did you get to see Nick Cave? I remember you said they were going to hang with the kids so you and B could go to a show. You are very lucky to have such wonderful family. :)

Rebekah said... are LUCKY to have such engaged elders in your life. I can tell you sincerely, from sad experience, that it's a REAL GIFT to have that and a REAL LOSS when you don't.
