Mississippi Memories

Although the reason for our recent visit to Mississippi last week was sad, it was still a joy to spend time with Sam’s family all gathered in one place. Grandma Dot, as we all called her, lived to be 97 and left behind eight grandchildren, fifteen great grandchildren, and one great great grandchild – Amelia. I’m thankful that she got to meet Amelia at Christmas and we have a few photos of five generations all together.

It’s not often that we’re all in one place at the same time anymore now that all of Sam’s cousins are growing up. I love family stories and old photos, even if I didn’t grow up with them as my own, and there were plenty of both as everyone reminisced. Of course there was also lots of laughter and food, because you can’t get a huge family together without it. We even fit in some shopping because there’s nothing cuter than baby girl clothes.

Amelia loved all the attention from her fan club, and she was passed around all day every day. Usually she wanted to be walked around so she could be part of the party, but occasionally she couldn’t keep her eyes open and whoever was holding her finally got to sit down for a spell!

We’re back home with a busy week ahead, and next week we’ll be in Alabama with my parents. I’m so, so grateful that we are surrounded by so much love, even if we don’t live down the block from family like I wish.
