Gratituesday Family

Families, God blessed families. At first, there were just the four of us. Wendy, me, John and Robin. Now there are son in laws, daughter in laws, nieces, nephews and Uncles and Aunts and grandbabies. All blessed. What is really cool, we all love the LORD. On July 4th my sister Wendy hosts a big family bash at her place. This year I got to drive in for the festivities. This past year Wendy's family has grown from three daughters and one son in law to three daughters and three son in laws. Everyone was there. The highlight of the day was of course the "Brott Family" badminton game. In the picture above you can see just how serious the game is. The court is a regulation court, measured to perfection all in the side yard of the house. Who would want to miss the father in law versus the son in laws? The younger whipper snappers have age on their side but the father in laws and uncles have years of practice and wisdom on their side.  The grey haired guys won but boy did the younger guys give them a run for their money. All good fun. My siblings and I are so blessed.  God truly took beauty from ashes and today I could not be more thankful.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning Satan says, "Oh crud, she's up".
