Our daughter Laura, graduates from Bowling Green State University on Saturday. She is the first person in our family to graduate from a state university with a four-year degree. (We have two daughter-in-laws with a four-year degree, and two of our children have a two-year degree, as does Polly) Later in the day, we will be having a party for Laura at Sweetwater Chop House.
Sunday is our Family Christmas. When our children began to marry, Polly and I decided that we did not want to put any pressure on our children to be at our home on Christmas or Christmas Eve; so we have our Family Christmas the Sunday before Christmas. This arrangement has served us well and allows our children to be here without of the stress of needing to be somewhere else in a few hours.
I have said all to this to say…I am going to be pretty busy this weekend, so I doubt if I will do any writing. I will be taking a lot of pictures, so I might post a few of them if time allows.
Thank you for reading and I hope all of you will have a wonderful Christmas. Whatever Christmas means to you, I hope it will be a blessed time for you and your family. When our family gathers together, Polly and I are reminded that we are indeed blessed and have much to be grateful for. No matter how much pain I am in, I know that I am a blessed man to have a wonderful wife, six awesome children, three daughter-in-laws, and nine grandchildren.
