We had our family "Gathering" this spring, on an l800's farm, belonging to our daughter and her very large family. It's located in upstate New York, nestled in the Adirondack mountains. I have no words to describe the beauty there. We came together for a brief time and discovered what it means to be related. The children found uncles, aunts and cousins. The men and boys enjoyed skeet shooting and the women folk never lacked for conversation.
