re*union /re'yunyen/ n 1:act of reuniting 2: a meeting of persons after a separation
I must admit by the end of the summer I am REUNIONED out! We just had our Big Tenney 11 Reunion this past weekend and we have our Big Slade Reunion this weekend and in 2 weeks we will have another Tenney Reunion for my siblings and their families. I do enjoy them and love seeing family that I haven't seen in a while but reunions just happen to wear me out. I am so exhausted by the time I get home and get the mess all cleaned up:)
This past weekend was a lot of work but a lot of fun. We had a great turn out and I was able to see cousins that I hadn't seen in a long time. We have miracles occur on a daily basis with a family of our size. It was a treat to see my Grandma Tenney. She is 95 years old and the most incredible woman I have ever known. She exhibits all the qualities of a virtuous woman. We joke that Grandma Tenney could commit murder and still get into the Celestial Kingdom:) I love you Grandma!!! I also was able to visit with my Aunt Kem who has battled breast cancer this past year. She looks beautiful and her faith and testimony is such a strength to me. My cousin Marnie and her husband Lorin were there. Lorin has been fighting Leukemia for the past 3 years. He is an amazing man and a hero to many and I admire their faith and courage. On Sunday we had a great meeting, the spirit was so strong and I had an overwhelming sense of gratitude for my amazing family.
