Different kinds of Family

There are lots of reasons to spend time with all the kinds of family that we seem to gather. There are the kind we are born to, the kind we gather at different stages of our lives and the ones we find while in a crisis, like our Leukemia family. But when it is all said and done, it is the kind of family that love and support us that turns out to be the best.

It is also good to spend time with family so years of from now we can gather and answer the question: What is Grampa John pouring from this container?

It just gets better all the time.


I am always amazed when the alarm goes off at 5:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning. We are out the door at 5:30 after fixing coffee and walking and feeding the dogs. We arrive at the boat house before 6:00 a.m. and I don't fall and kill myself wandering around Gas Works park in total darkness.
She still smiles before racing a 4500 k. They came in 4th but only 7 seconds behind the third boat.
