We had a Garage sale here and what fun

So many nice people came by and I had a wonderful time talking about all manner of subjects.  My girls are here to help and what a joy they are.  Now my son has arrived and I am in fat city.  Listening to them  talk and interact is such fun.  They banter and giggle just like they did growing up I  am so happy they love each other so, they have an inner circle that they share and the only problem is I am the old one,  I am not part of the circle. I know when I pass they will still be close they do not  need me to hold them together.  I think I did good.
