Spending a Week in Paradise

The one who knows the blessings and support of a family lacks nothing...
Our Family is like a patchwork quilt
With kindness gently sewn
Each piece an original
With beauty all its own.
With threads of warmth and happiness
It's lightly stitched together
To last with love throughout the years
Our family is forever.

What could be a better way to spend a week than on sugar sands in Florida, basking in the sun by day and sharing a bottle of wine with dear family at sunset each night. That is exactly what I did when my family joined with my brother's on Sunnyside Beach on the Gulf Coast. The beach was pristine --- not a drop of oil from the dreadful spill in May was to be found. We are already counting the days until we can meet again.
