I got the best birthday present I could ever get this year. My beloved sister flew in from Chicago to surprise me for my birthday. They tell me I fainted when I saw her. I don't remember. But look at this picture:That, my friends, is a look of pure happiness on my face as I lay collapsed in her lap. You must understand, I love my sister more than I can ever put mere words to. She was snatched away from me in an evil corporate relocation almost four years ago, and I have never been the same since. Most heartbreaking of all was that she had to move when ZimDee was just two weeks old, and I didn't even get to see her during my entire pregnancy and the birth of Sprout. So the moments we can capture together are very precious to me.
I will beg your forgiveness in advance for being pretty scarce during the time of her visit. I just want to soak up each and every minute with her that I can. Surely you will understand.
My love to all as I'm living these much too short days here in Heaven.
