Often with laughter comes........more laughter...almost hysterical laughter. Or tears of joy! Or tears of great sadness.

Sutter reads the book...Cadel eats the book.
This week has been full of joy-laughter for me.

Daughter Sutter and I flew to San Diego for a very brief trip to visit with E&E&C (son Evan, daughter in law Erin, and nephew/grandson Cadel).  Sutter had never seen Cadel in person, but had seen him on Skype.

Skype is a challenging way to build a relationship....but it beats writing letters, in which every single word is outdated, and the recipients have to realize history has already been made and/or reversed, by the time they read them.

I love Skyping with Sutter and Sean, her husband. There's something that just seems to make us click together...must be the Kiwi humor, which is almost always translated by Sutter to me.

Skyping with E&E&C is nice...but C gets kind of bored with it all.

This week my heart was filled with joy. Watching all that the "kids" and their spouses have done, all on their own. It's interesting being a bystander, taking all of it in. Building houses, building babies, building careers, building ever widening circles of friends.

As I was working on my weekly real estate blog, Sutter and Caitlin and Mindy (Sutt's friends from college), came together at our house. Their laughter filled this house with joy! Not that this house is un-joyful, but not filled with so much laughter.

I think this is what I'm meant to do at this stage of my life.

Keep my eyes open and my mouth closed.

Watch it, watch it....BOOM!

Live richly! marilyn
