My Family is Good for my Soul

I was a very lucky girl the week before last. My Sister and Nieces came from snowy Utah for a visit. It had been a year since I saw them. A year is far too long to go without seeing your family. Especially when you're as close as my Sister and I are. She is 3 years older than me and I've looked up to her since I was a tot. We stayed at my Mum's house for a few days and then drove down to sunny Phoenix to stay at my house. It was simply lovely. Nothing beats laying on the couch with my Sister, feet intertwined and eating Cadbury's Creme Eggs, while watching episode after episode of "Intervention". It makes my heart ache when I think about her living so far away. So 4 days of relaxing together did my heart a load of good. I sure do miss her now that she's gone home. My heart is aching once again. No completed knitting to show you just yet. But it's of these days. I'm the world's biggest procrastinator.

I'm so happy that you got to spend some good, quality time with Jayne, the girls and your Mum over Easter! Family is so important, isn't it? I feel so sorry for those that don't have that special bond with their family. I was very fortunate to have very special, awesome people in my family, too. I treasure all the sweet memories (and the not-so-sweet ones, too!). It makes their being gone a little less painful. But I shall never forget any of them! Good for you, honey!
