Thankful Thursdays...Finally

 

Since March our family has been following the guidelines and for the most part, only saw each other while standing in the driveway after familydelivering goodies. 

We all have been to the store, limited meals out, work, school, and other services but we have avoided getting together as a family until last Sunday.   

 

Everyone wanted to come together to celebrate my birthday so we decided the best thing would be to meet at my brother’s home so the children could play outside and we could all sit outside and visit. 

 

Being able to get together with my family (or at least part of them) was the best birthday gift I could have!!!  

 

So that is what I’m thankful for this Thursday.

 

 

My philosophy is, involve your family in whatever you do. Nothing gives you more joy. Suniel Shetty

It is good to see that you enjoyed your birthday.

We have not attended any family gatherings during the pandemic.

I hear you loud and clear. Your birthday sounds similar to how we have been visting with my son, daughter-in-law, and grandkids. It sure beats waving from a car.

Nina Hollander it was so much fun being with them. And we kept our distance too. 

Barbara Todaro I know you are!!! And you're lucky to have them so close to you. 

Wayne Martin we ditched the masks but stayed away from each other except for my photo with the kids.

Thank you Rocky Dickerson I hope that by the time Thanksgiving is here, I can have everyone over.

Brian England it really was the best birthday gift I could have had. Seeing them while standing in the driveway isn't the same. 

Sharon Lee it was so special!  

Joe Jackson Thank you very much.

Hi Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS I know how important family is to you and I love the pictures you share with us. My causing would beg me every time Larry and I visited Houston to move back.

Absolutely Michael Jacobs  Although, I did have a piece of cake, no ice cream. 

Hi and thank you Lottie Kendall And, it's never too late for a birthday wish. 

Roy Kelley Many of our friends have been gathering but meeting in their backyards and staying apart. But it's still best to stay apart if you can.

I think not being able to come together as a family in ways we normally would, has been the most difficult thing about this pandemic.  I'm glad you were able to have your's to help you celebrate your birthday, Kathy!

I'm so glad you enjoyed your day!

I miss my boys more than anything else during this nightmare.

I see Jacinda via fb messenger calls daily and I've visited her and Zack a few times....from a distance outside. I've only seen the other three boys maybe 3 times (short outside distanced visit) since the beginning of all this. They have Skyped with me a couple of times but they don't really visit...they jump around and play among themselves.  I miss them SO MUCH.
