I was both excited and apprehensive prior to leaving for my family reunion. I have a huge family, but my emotions have nothing to do with the size of my family or the fact that it has been a long time since I have seen many of them. As each day grew closer, I was less than thrilled to start this adventure. I became so used to my everyday routine, that altering it was a little scary.
The same thing that made it exciting, also made it scary. I wanted to have fun, I just didn’t want it to cost me anything. I need to have more faith. A big part of me gets too used to the everyday. I need to work on killing that part of me when it comes to living life to the fullest and enjoying the blessings around me. One of those blessings is my family.
My grandmother on my mom’s side had three children and there’s more where that came from. There was a total of 48 of us that met at Eugene T. Mahoney State Park in Nebraska. Not everyone was able to make it, but for those who were there it was fun. My favorite part of any trip always seems to be centrally focused on me getting us lost.
