Greater than the Sum of it’s Parts

We had a small celebration for my father in law last Saturday.

DSCN9746The project manager and the budding artist.

DSCN9743The media expert.

DSCN9754Practical volunteers and thinkers.

It was a great afternoon, making me think that this is really what family is all about. Doing great things. Going beyond what we can do by ourselves. Everybody does their bit. Nobody gets left behind.
