My sister is home safe now having arrived home about midnight last night. We had a wonderful time and it will be lonesome around here for awhile until I get used to the quiet again. We didn’t get to do all we wanted to and her husband has informed me that I would have to be the one doing the traveling next time as he missed her so much. So maybe I will get up the courage to get on that plane next year.
My son came to visit us on Friday. I was really happy to see him as I hadn’t seen him since early June. He brought me a box of the lovely hand made chocolates that I like so well. My brother and sis in law visited on Tuesday. They were just back from a cruise to Mexico, so for my birthday I got a T Shirt with Puerto Vallarta printed on the front and a pink sweatshirt that read “Don’t listen to my sister, I am the favorite” on the front of it, plus a tote bag and other items from Mexico. My daughter and son in law gave me a beautiful birthday cake and took us all out to eat yesterday at Red Lobster in Peoria. My sis brought me Willow Tree “Sisters by Heart.” Pictures below. They are so beautiful. When facing each other they interlock hands in prayer.
And now I am so tired it will take me a week to get rested up. It was worth it though!! Thanks again to all of you who sent me emails, cards, and gifts! As our old blogging friend Al used to say “Love Ya.”
