Being Together

Last Tuesday, while the Americans went to the polls to vote between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton for their next president, we all gathered for a family meal. It’s always a joy when our family gets together. in whatever groupings. But this time it felt extra special.

Tom and Thea had had hockey training that afternoon, and were happy to be back on the field. The winter season finished some time ago. Tristan put his wish for his Christmas gift out to all of us. Jeanette and Christopher were very happy to be almost better from the dreadful virus they’ve had for weeks. Blaine was happy to have got through a fraught work and family time. Elwyn had a busy week but was looking forward to getting her office move over the coming weekend.

It was good to break bread and share our stories together. To remind us of what really matters.
