An Advent Upon Us

I think of those gatherings where we tell stories and remember.  Those stories that give us context and identity and tell us that we belong. Those stories are our framework where love is experienced and imperfectly acted out.   We share and laugh and reminisce about a lifetime that is unique to us and continues to define us and knit us together. And I recognize the privilege family is and I want to offer this to this young man who has had so little.
