La Familia


I’m thinking of the movie “Moonstruck”. At the end of this very funny film, the characters raise their glasses to “La Familia”. Unlike the Italian family in that story, my family heritage is mostly Irish with an eclectic smattering of this and that from here and there.

What does this mean to me? It means getting together for Easter Sunday like we did yesterday. Even though the brunch was expensive and I had to ignore conversations that annoyed me. That’s what family does. We drive distances and spend money to share a meal and sing a song…”In Your Easter Bonnet/ With All the Thrills Upon it”…with other families looking on and smiling. Then we drive home talking about each other, some nice, some not so nice comments. But still it is good to have “La Familia” to toast “Good Health ” to in whatever the language of your heritage.

To your family and mine, I toast Health and Happiness.
