For Danica

My oldest daughter is hoping to move home early this spring. Right down the road. Walking distance. Shared meals, quick pick ups for spontaneous shopping trips, kids coming to play with Uncle Merrick and other cousins. Brainstorming decorating schemes, experimenting with menus, piano lessons for a youngest brother. Too much fun is in store!

A sister of hers also lives down the street. Taking turns babysitting, attending mothers' meetings together, football games on Sunday afternoons, comparing parenting stories and theories, baking cookies to share, shopping for Christmas in Syracuse. More fun!

Sister number three lives in a nearby town. Sewing parties, decorating cookies, piano accompaniment for Broadway show tunes. Husbands who talk about clothes, business, and the Patriots. Gourmet food and dinner out together. Still more fun!

Several sisters and brothers still reside at 1942. Watching movies together, invading a new house in search of homemade pizza and great coffee, jamming around the piano. Spoiling two nephews, babysitting and learning to sew, chats about doctrine and computer geek stuff. Girl's Bible studies, boys' debates. And more fun besides!

Hooray for fun changes -- I'll take all the fun life affords!

Oh how I love all of these thoughts - I just wish they were mine. However, if retirement comes and I am able I know I will be there fore some of those spring and fall cookies and sewing, and book sharing moments. Life is good.
