Meet my family

This evening the phone rang and we were talking with our daughter Sam, then we were Skyping with our grandson Parker and his family and the phone rang and the doorbell did too and a friend was there and a little while later another call and then the first friend left and then the phone rang and another friend rang the doorbell and it was all crazy-busy in a wonderful way and I wondered if I was going to have to skip the blog tonight.

And in the midst of all that was a request from my sister: she had started a blog and wanted to link to a post of mine; would it be okay?

Blog, this is my sister Marian. I think you’ll like her.

And Blog, this is my daughter Sam. I think you’ll like her too. If you ever wanted to know (or ever wanted to be able to tell someone) what questions to ask, what things to do or say or not do or say to someone who’s been given a major diagnosis, she’s got posts in two parts, last Sunday and the one before, that I wish I’d had when I was new at this lupus thing. Medical jargon translated? There you go.

Not to mention great recipes at the beginning of what she thought was going to stay a cooking blog.

Enjoy. I’m quite proud of them.

I love it when life gets crazy-busy, then quiet moments feel even better!
Thank you for recommending two new blogs.

Wow! Busy day. I remember meeting Sam that one time I came to visit you, sat in a deep chair, and couldn’t stand up. Then Sam saved the day by extracting me from that chair.

Also I visited your sister’s blog, and left a comment.

Oh, your sister and daughter are both so lovely. And smart. And this is not a shock at all to me!
