I am up in the mountains enjoying time with my siblings and their families. It is a sweet time to see all the cousins playing in the beauty that surrounds my parents cabin. The only thing missing is my sweet honey who has to be working at home.

It is so cool and wonderful up here that I have decided to stay a few extra days. This means there will be no Dance Party this week. But next week is the finale so we will do an all out fiesta! More details to come.

Till then I am going to soak in the rain and bask in the joy I derive from my family relationships. Happy family relationships really do bring the greatest joy on earth. Spending time together to build memories and letting my family members know what I appreciate about them are two ways I am strengthening my family relationships this week.

What have you done lately that has strengthened a family relationship you have?
I would love to hear.

Just got home from our annual family reunion at the beach. It was great!

My brother and his wife and daughter are up from London for a week to celebrate my mums 70th birthday - so good to spend time all together as a family.

I sent, to my sister, copies of notes and stories her adult daughters gave/sent to me when they were in elementary school. It was a total surprise to her, and I received a delighted thank you note today.

We worked together at the homeless shelter making pizza and sandwiches. It was hot and we were tired, but gave us all a reminder of how blessed we are and how much we need to share and be thankful.

For FHE I got on the Wordle website and made name pictures of the Attributes of Jesus Christ. Then I made one for each of the children with attributes and special characteristics I see in them. I presented them to the children after we discussed how we can be more like our Savior. They felt very special to "see their name in print" and see all the good things I saw in them.

To enjoy the beauty of our surroundings, we also took a hike last week up to our favorite waterfall and played in the pool of water at its base.
