My husband and I spent a wonderful day yesterday at the home of my sister and her husband. Our visit was long overdue as we hadn't been there since the summer of 2019, due to the Pandemic, and our day was joyful! In addition to the two of them, her oldest daughter and her children joined us later and there were lots and lots of hugs all around.
The only sad note was learning of the passing of our former pastor's mother, a delightful, always upbeat woman who could just light up a room (or a church) by her presence. So before I went to bed I wrote the following and created a sympathy card today which I'll soon post.
