We’ll be huggin and kissing and playing and enjoying that family we see about once a year.

We’ll be marveling and remembering and denying the fast passage of time.

We’ll be pondering and thinking and reflecting about Important Days…first birthdays, 40th birthdays, oldest nieces marrying.

We’ll be counting the minutes, savoring the time, and observing the dynamics as the entire family gathers together.

We’ll be smiling and laughing, crying and hugging, thinking and sharing. (And someone in the family will be taking frantic notes and snapping thousands of pictures in an attempt to capture it for later enjoyment.)

This month’s Mary Moments will be live! (Have you submitted your post? Hurry! Tomorrow’s the last day…and you don’t need a blog to participate…read all the details here.)
