Family – A Haiku

Family Gathering

stories singing and laughter

God given blessing


This weekend my family and I attended “Harderama”.  A gathering of the Harder family that takes place every other year.  My grandma (my mom’s mom) prayed that her children would not stop getting together, even after they grew up and had children of their own.

Grandma and Grandpa have been gone for years already, but Grandma’s prayers are still answered.  Grandma’s kids, grand-kids, great and even great-GREAT grandkids are still getting together regularly.  I have heard that some families get together and end up fighting non-stop.  I therefore count it a God-Given Blessing that we get together and enjoy each other’s company.

I can hardly wait until the summer of 2015 for the next gathering!
