Charlie Bear here, and guess what? Magic can happen twice, in fact even three, four, five, six, and seven times!
I’m talking about family reunion magic, the kind that makes Mom Peep grin this silly, wide, happy-eyed smile.
Mom Peep has been going to Wisconsin to be with her family for years now. It started out as a gift to her own Mom, but now my Mom Peep is the oldest one of the bunch (is that called a Family Matriarch or something?), anyway, she LOVES what they do. They rent a cabin at one of the Wisconsin Dells water parks for a long weekend and splash and tube and slide at the myriad of places to enjoy there.
They make family style meals together, and they did their traditional cookies.
Everyone sleeps under the same roof. They wake up together, well, one at a time or so, and tromp sleepy-eyed with mugs of java to the outside plastic tables to share a morning coffee clutch of sorts. Well, that’s what I call it. I could be wrong.
Anyway, here’s a family pic from the reunion last month:
Did I give Mom extra licks and kisses when she returned? Yup. And she snuggled me tight. Did I miss her? Yup, but she needed to go there to be with those she loved.
What do you do for yourself when it comes to family time and togetherness and is it worth it?
