Wanna know how old I am? Well, I just celebrated my 20 year high school class reunion this weekend. This means that I’m very, very young – unless, of course, you consider that last time we had a reunion, all of our kids were babies, and this time some of them have a driver’s license. ;)
And then we realized that if we have another reunion in 10 years most of our kids will be adults.
But we didn’t dwell on that. It’s crazy enough that all of us are as old as our parents used to be – if that makes any sense – which of course it does if you’re talking with classmates from years past.
It might give you a chuckle to know that there was a grand total of 17 kids in my graduating class. (Yes, I bet a couple of you had just a few more in your class than I had.)
I’m also happy to report that of all seven of us girls from the graduating class of 1991…none of us has big hair anymore. (Unless you consider that the wind did some interesting things to mine on Sunday.)
This Gratituesday, I’m thankful for reunions and a chance to catch up with people. Not only did I have a high school reunion, today we had a wonderful family reunion full of cousins, babies, aunts that give great hugs, homemade ice cream and shared memories. We decorated graves together, cried together, laughed together and if I haven’t mentioned it already – there was homemade ice cream.
I hope your Memorial Day Weekend has been a blessing to you!
