Ribs and Relatives

Today's favorite moments included . . .

. . . the biggest gathering of my relatives in my recent memory. Aunt Lisa and her family are in town, and we all gathered at Grandma's house for dinner. It was great to be there with so many people I know and love, and reinforce the ties that keep us close even when we’re far away.

. . . hearing Daddy tell Joy the story of how he and I met.

And another thing . . .

. . . Aunt Lisa served barbecued ribs for dinner. I’d actually never had them before, assuming there would be little satisfaction in nibbling so little meat off so much bone. Boy, was I wrong. I would have eaten even more than I did if I’d just had more room.
