How was your Fathers Day? I had my Dad over for a "Dottie" dinner. Dottie was my Mom and she was a great cook. I know he misses my mom's cooking so I tried to recreate it as best I could and I think he was happy.
My son is home visiting for awhile before he heads back to school. I cherish these moments when the whole family is under the same roof. I ache for those days when we were all in the house together. I didn't cherish them enough. We are on to other things. Daniel is gone at school and Allie is going to be flying the coop soon.
So last night I yelled down to them to undo the dishwasher and the banter between them was delightful. Arguing, laughter, and general brother, sister stuff brought back so many memories. Every single moment of their lives was a joy. Not saying we didn't have really tough times, but we were a tough bunch and came though it a stronger family.
