Our family means a lot to us when we are both young children and then as we get older. Not to say those in between years don’t matter we just seem to not appreciate it as much. This past weekend was special, as our daughter Regina talked me into going to the “Happiest Place on Earth” with the grandkids. I rode around Disneyland watching them enjoy themselves until they convinced me I could go into It’s A Small World without getting out of my power chair. My grandkids loved seeing me out of the house and enjoying myself with them.
Next stop was to a 60th Birthday Party for Cheryl’s niece Tassie Harris at the Kola Shana located only a few blocks from the house and a place I knew was accessible for my power chair. I have not seen Tassie and her family for a little while and I knew I would see some people I have not seen for years. One of the first people to greet me before I could settle in was Pam Bolton. Pam grew-up as one of our family’s adopted children on California Street and Pam was the first African-American to work at Kaiser Clinic on Date Street in San Bernardino as a Clinic Assistant.
My weekend closed out with a family dinner at the house with Renee, Tim, Rickerby, Paulette and yes more grand and great grand kids eating and hunting for Easter eggs.
I will close and say I hope all of you enjoyed your family this weekend and give thanks to our Lord and Savior for this wonderful life we enjoy.
