A week ago we celebrated the life of my Great Aunt Mary who lived to be 91 years young. This photo just arrived in my email and sums up the vibe at festivities involving this side of the family quite well. Even though the Mathes genetics trend toward introvert, we held our own on Mudge turf 😜
Here’s the thing... in the past I would need a few drinks to achieve some semblance of comfort at a large family gathering. I just don’t do crowds or small talk particularly well. Well here I am on the elimination diet which means no alcohol 🍷... it really put to the test all the personal growth I’ve worked toward achieving the last couple years. Happy to report I did well! It is possible to be an introvert who puts on an extroverted hat and live to tell the tale. Hallelujah! A great party to honor a great lady!
