5 Days

In 5 days, I will be sitting in this spot with my sister, where we sat last year. I will see her in 3 days, when I fly in to her town, and I can't wait! Our Thelma & Louise trip begins Sunday morning, very early. It is about a 7 hour drive to Sandestin Beach, Florida from her house. (I check the Oil spill update daily, and so far, beaches are open and hasn't hit our beach). We already know where we will stop for breakfast. We like to sing along to our favorite gospel CD, Alan Jackson. We end up crying...then we start laughing and do a lot of talking and catching up. With 10 grand kids between us, there are plenty of stories to tell. I am so thankful that I get to go on this trip again and spend time with my best friend. It never gets easier living so far away from one another, but we make up for it when we are together.
All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go........I'm leaving on a jet plane

... "don't know when I'll be back again!"... just singing along right with you! You sound so very, very happy and I am ecstatic for you. I can just hear you two singing and laughing and talking about all those lovely, beautiful grandbabies. Just like with you still having your Dad, I am so happy that you have a sister to share all your wonderful things about life. I was just talking to Audrey this morning about that one thing in my life that I've always missed... a sister. I am so blessed to have daughters who have each other... but to HAVE a sister is such a miracle and I so enjoy it through you!! I keep telling Rita that there's still a chance and to get on it right away!!!!! Hahaha!!!! I love this happy post!
