Back in 2018 I described how for years now, I’ve painted a Western scene to be auctioned off at our annual family reunion. These paintings always include horses or cows or both—no surprise there, considering where I live. The auction helps support the next year’s reunion. But the painting I ended up painting in 2018 didn’t go to the next year’s reunion. There was no next year’s reunion or the next or the next. You know why. This year, trying to get ahead of the next wave of COVID, the family gathered for the 2022 family reunion. My painting was finally auctioned to add to our next reunion fund. Sadly, we lost four family members since the last reunion. Let’s not ever lose sight of how important it is to stay close to our families. And, that goes for our friends too. Life is short, folks!

Amen! I lost my brother this year. Always take the open door to tell them you love them.
