Last Goodbyes, Loud Music and Family Tree

29 Aug

The last family have left today and so we are filling the unwelcome silence with music that our kids organised for our Golden Wedding. They sent an email to people they could find on our Mac and received back lots of wonderful messages from family and friends from our 50 years together  including a song from each to make two cds and a third in the making as we contact some who were missed for some reason.  The lovely messages have all been printed in a booklet.

Our beautiful ‘children’ made us wonderful gifts – the cds, a family portrait up-dated to include the new Grandbabies also used as the cd picture disc, a hand printed Family tree and there was a poem from GrandsonJ.  We are overwhelmed by the love in these presents.

    I love the family tree! I had to share it with my mother-in-law who is a artisan of scrapbook type stuff. I am thinking this might be how my husband and I mark our next wedding anniversary too – we like to use the tree of life as our theme. You have such a lovely and thoughtful family! Thank you for sharing them with us.

      T, 6 years old, asked me why I was weeping! I think, by the end of the evening, she understood that they were very happy tears?
