We came together on an extremely rare visit.  We gathered at our oldest daughter's farmhouse,
for a family brunch.

The farm table never looked better!  The vintage tablecloth, the spring designed
napkins, and the pink tulips made it all look so festive and inviting.

There were mothers and daughters gathered around the table.

There were aunts and nieces.

There were grandmas, and a brand new grandbaby.

There were sisters.

And cousins who grew up together, and had plenty of fun stories to share from their

There was one from the next generation of family, and her precious new baby.

There were five delicious quiches that our hostess made, all from the eggs of the chickens
out back of the barn.  There was a time of singing, prayer, and an abundance of stories
past and present. There was laughter and times of sharing.  All of this was done in honor
of a very special young mother, who is one of us.  She is walking through the journey of cancer. 
It has been a difficult, and at times, painful journey.  The brunch was to
convey to her, from our hearts, that we are walking it with her and her family.

We will be there for her!  We care deeply for her!  We, came from far and near to be
at this brunch, because we wanted to let her know of our support and love.

That is what family does, and that is what makes such a big difference
in life.
Today, I am so grateful for the gift of family, and for a hostess
that made it all happen.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

What a wonderful morning it was!! Your eldest daughter gleaned her hostessing skills from her mama, and we were the beneficiaries of your training. Could there be a better bunch of women to spend the morning with? Thanks for capturing it so well, Judy---you're the best!

After reading this post there are so many thoughts running through my mind. The beauty of this gathering where every detail was so well planned and thought out, the coming together of women in various stages of life and the love being shared. I can't think of a nicer way to support this young mother.
