I first met the Wild's a couple years ago. For a while I have heard about their kids and their new grandson. I remember hearing about childhood memories when their kids were young and now creating more with a growing family. As we move from day to day it may seem like life is the same as we do our day to day but really it is pretty amazing how life changes so quickly. Those memories that seem so vivid like they were yesterday have been gone for years. I think about this often even when my kids are still young.
"Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back everything is different..." C.S. Lewis
It has been over a year since the family has been home together. This year they gather together to celebrate the holidays, have fun, and cherish this time. One of the best gifts and probably the greatest memory is having their new grandson as part of the family. I can think of a few things that really bring families together....one of them is children. They bring a special something to the room, a smile...laughter. It was great to meet all of them and the extra little guy that seems to make everyone smile.
