Thankful Thursday

All good things must come to an end.  I was sadly reminded of this when my Aunt Carol and Uncle Jimmy left yesterday after a four-day stay with us.  It is so so much fun to anticipate an upcoming event, and then when it comes and goes, it tends to be a bit of a letdown.  My mom's sister and her husband are two of the very best people whom I know, so it is always so wonderful to spend quality time with them.

The happy group

We did have a lovely visit with a family barbecue, trip to Lake Side Grill via boat, a walk about the local town of Skaneateles, and, of course, hot hours spent relaxing on the dock.  Aunt Carol even attempted to teach me how to crochet!  Time with family is precious and, in a sense, always fleeting, so it is best to take advantage of it whenever possibly.  This is another little lesson that Milton has truly emphasized for me.  That dog is a people lover, and he always has his priorities straight.
