Family

Family

Your family is the people who are there for you. They support you, comfort you, give you a shoulder to lean on. They cheer you on and welcome you home. This is a photo taken a few moments after I finished my first marathon, January 1, 2013. I am literally leaning on them to be able to stand upright. All my grandkids (and my hubby, 2 daughters and a son-in-law) braved 30-40 degree temps for 4+ hours waiting for me to cross the finish line. I heard their cries of, “Yay, Gramma!” from the bridge as I rounded the last corner. They build a tunnel of linked hands for me to run under as I came down the home stretch.
In our home, every time a family member arrives we give a cheer of “Yay! You’re home!” as we welcome them in to the safety and security of our sanctuary from the world.
Families are forever!

    Good job, Grandma! I have run a few marathons. I hope that someday some little ones will yell out, ‘Yay, Grandma!” for me as I finish another.

    Oh, yes, praise God for the sanctuary of home. I love your custom of shouting, “Yay, you’re home!” to family members returned to the nest. And congratulations for completing a marathon.
    A stellar accomplishment!

    Thank you, Gail, for becoming a follower of my blog. I trust you will find the posts meaningful.
