Ripple effect

It’s like a drop in the pond. One tiny splash that redounds throughout the entire body of water.

A family reunion was in the offing this summer with RK’s side of the family. We all planned to gather in the beautiful state of Maine for a week of extraordinary fun, festivities, fellowship, and food. Things change. RK’s older sister passed away January 2, 2007. The pull to Maine has been significantly diminished. A number of family members have made it known they will not travel to Maine. One of my nephews, Iain, age 25, wrote and asked if he could come to our home this summer for a week. He needed to get out of the city. “Sure!! Come early, stay late!”

That was the drop in the pond.

TR thought that if Iain comes, his sister, BIL and niece should also make the drive from the south. And if they travel, their parents will surely want to join us. Maybe their other siblings will come too. And Tom and Joanne from Massachusetts. And, and, and…

Voila! A family reunion at our house this summer! Nothing is set in stone yet but the way this family works, I can easily envision a house full, and tents full, of family for a week come the middle of summer.
