2006 Reunion

We came by plane, by car, by bike
From many states away,
Descending on their little farm
For our reunion day.

They met us with hurrahs and smiles
And said goodbye with tears,
Knowing we'd not meet again
For another two, long years.

Our family reunions are
A grand and glorious feast
And everyone's held in esteem
From the eldest to the least.

We filled the days with reminisce,
Long evenings with great fun;
Storing memories to bless us all
When this event was done.

Our gracious hostess, Patty
Turned it to a grand affair
I'm sorry for the relatives
Who didn't make it there.

Another day, another time
We'll send out the call again,
To meet with those we love the most,
Our near and distant kin.

Ah family reunions are such fun!
Glad you had a grand time...
and also had a Happy Birthday!

For it was not into my ear you whispered
But into my heart..
It was not my lips you kissed
But my soul.

Joyce,

Thank you for sharing a bit of your family reunion here with us. Your family reunion sounds wonderful and like a lot of fun. They really do bring families together and I do miss having them in our family.

God bless.

Thanks Enchantress and Bob.  Yes inded, I had a happy birthday.  I had a cake and celebration at the reunion and when I came home all of my own family was gathered at my daughter's for a birthday party for me.  They didn't even give me time to wipe the road dust off my face.  Love, Joyce

Joyce~
To stay in touch
means so much
when kin are spread far and wide
To gather in remembered reunion
is a great source of pride~

I am glad that you had fun,
and returned safely home
now through the gazillion email messages
you must now roam~

Happy Birth-of-day, my friend
I know that you must be
as happy as a child-at-heart
with such obvious glee~

I went to a family reunion once.  That was when my Grandma was alive.  I think she held this disfunctional family together.  It strikes me as funny that you went to a family reunion I wonder if it is the same family reunion as songbirds husband went to.

Dear Joyce:  Thanks for the great poem outlining your family reunion.  I loved going to them but I haven't been now since 1988.  So many older family members have passed on and the younger ones don't seem interested.  All my relatives are in Canada, so that poses a problem too. I'm so glad you got to go to yours and obviously really enjoyed yourself.

Love
Betty Lou

Thanks.  The next one will be here at my place.  I had the biggest one ever in 2001.  Joyce
