Family Friday

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Sunday the Boston Red Sox won the world series!!

Wednesday the parade went through the streets of Boston 

and right past the building where I work on Cambridge street.

I got to duck out the door on my lunch break and watch it go past!

Pretty exciting!

Tuesday night we got together at my mum's to celebrate my brother's birthday.

She is the hostess with the mostess and there was plenty of lobsters to go around!

I didn't get to see my grandson on Halloween but my daughter texted me this photo.

Toot, toot, ding, ding, ding, I'm a choo choo train.

Joe and I went to my mum's to help her with a few things around the house

and she had won this sweet little potted mum

and gifted it to me.


An old and dear friend of the family that I have known since she was born

lost her 12 year old daughter early Thursday morning

to an inoperable brain tumor.

Shower your people with love

nothing else matters.

  1. Twelve years old! Just beginning life. I will pray for her parents, for sure. Your picture of the parade is beautiful. And your grandson's costume is so cute! For a minute I really thought he was sitting on a little train!

  2. Your post captures the full swing of life's pendulum between celebration and mourning, giving and receiving. Blessings to you as we enter this season of gratitude. I'm thankful for your gracious words here.

  3. Your post started so well and then that awful news about your friend. You are so right about showing love. We never know what is around the corner.

  4. Hi Kara, your link at Susanne's led to an error page. I went to your main blog page and found your FFF entry. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend's daughter. I can only imagine the pain of losing a child. I pray for grace and comfort for the family.

    How exciting to be on the path of the parade! Verne looks cute. The lobster dinner sounds good! I don't think I have ever had lobster except for a bite when my husband had it once.

  5. Life is so full, isn't it? Blessings, sorrows. Prayers for your friend, and yes, we need to shower love on those near and dear while we can. Love the photo of the birthday party.

  6. Your grandchild looks precious in his costume. I didn't get to see my grandbabies either....maybe next year. : ) The Mums are pretty and so Autumn looking.


  7. Congrats to your Boston Red Sox. They really did play well (and I say this even though I'm a Dodgers fan-- (: --)
    Wow, that mum is a perfect fit for the season -- a beautiful gift.
    I didn't see my grandkids in costume, either--just photos, which are excellent, too!
    SO sorry for your friend. I pray for comfort for her.
