Tonight my brother John and his son Michael are in town so that Michael can attend a basketball camp at Lipscomb.  It's great that they can visit for a few days.

In July my sister Marilyn will be in town to hear a few tunes by James Taylor, who will also be in town at the Arena.  While the upstairs will not be ready to receive visitors, the downstairs will be ready for a sister visit.

With both our parents gone, it's a blessing to have a part of yourself still here on this earth.  It's a blessing to have someone who shares the same memories and can still make new ones by sharing new adventures (like going segway-ing at Disney World).

I guess that's the reward for getting through childhood with brothers and/or sisters - if you can manage to make it through without killing each other, you find that you actually have grown up with your best friends.

Today's blessings:  dinner and visit with the fam and John and Michael; Lindley and Everley time; chatting with Marilyn on the phone (Happy Birthday Marilyn!); sweet story from Laura

We need another sibling trip! Also, that was a really cool day and you don't have on a jacket- weren't you cold? :)
