My sweet sister, Donna will turn 80 on September 2nd. She is all I have left of siblings as we lost our younger brother to cancer last year.
After cancer took our mother in 1991, we decided to have a "Sister Weekend" every year to remember her and have some sister time. We have had many many wonderful weekends over the years. But then life got in the way and we skipped a few, and then a few more.
When we were visiting her on our trip up North recently, we made a covenant that we will start that tradition again. So, come August, I will board the Amtrak Train up North and then we will drive over to the Coast and spend some time together at the Beach. Shopping, eating, walking, napping, eating, walking, shopping....you get the picture...HaHa.
The older we get the more we realize we need to do those things we put off...you never know what tomorrow will bring. It doesn't see like it was that long ago that we were girls sharing life and a bedroom.
How nice to have something so special to look forward too.
