Last night I had the pleasure of eating supper at Mazzios with LeLe and my sister and her family. I LOVE being with my sister. (and it goes without saying LeLe too) Sister's family is hilarious and we always have a marvelous time together. Her son is a genius both academically and comically. Her daughter is blessed with brains, beauty and voice. My niece's boyfriend is relatively new to the family but never meets a stranger so he was very entertaining. It was funny watching our waitress bring him drinks without being asked, but forgetting everything my niece asked for.
The entire time we were there, we were laughing. And of course those around us looked at us from time to time as if they were wondering whether we were sane or not. Evenings like these are a balm to our poor stressed minds and bodies. We all agreed we should do that more often. I don't think I take time to enjoy my family enough. But, we are spread out in different towns and it does make it a little harder than just running across town for a visit.
