reunion tour

this weekend we had our annual family reunion
all those family and friends of the descendants of
both my parents

im glad that we decided to do this
all get together
my wife she and i make sure that we go each year
it seems as the years pass and my hair gets grayer
more of us gets more scattered
its the only time we will see each other anymore

my wife she and i also get to visit individually with our siblings
and their family before and after the reunion

now facebook helps a lot
there is no substitute for that smile handshake and hug
that facebook cant provide

and all that laughter and noise that happens each year

i plan on continuing until i cant go anymore or get to the
point where i dont know im there
then i guess ill leave it up to my wife she

this year we were missing my youngest brother
he courageously came last year
somehow i feel he knew he was there last year
only to die a month later
im so glad i got to see him and touch him and talk to him
before he left us

each year the gene pool gets larger and larger with new additions
we hope that none of them forgets where they came from
who all those people are and were

we all seem to forget and dont look back anymore in this facebook
grandparents aunts uncles brother sisters nieces and nephews
lets dont lose that connection

we only have this short time left here
lets dont live it alone
