Enjoying the Gift of a Sister

My sister came to Disney World last week for eight days. My plan was to be there when they arrived and spend Wed-Thurs with them, Friday in my office, Sat-Sun with them and Monday in my office and Tuesday just be there to wish them a safe trip. That was the plan. Sometimes you have to allow for a change in plans, The gift of family time can be a cherished prize that is all to quick to expire. I did not want to miss out on this wonderful chance to continue forging our new and improved bond.

SO. . . I have just spent the last eight days with my sister and her family in the Happiest Place On Earth (this side of the Mississippi). It has been eight wonderful, magical, happy days- hotels, restaurants (I brought some of my own food), theme parks, water parks, fireworks and parades. We played and toured, swam and giggled, shared and joked. It was all too short. Do you know what an amazing gift that is to be able to say that at the END of a week spent with family? 

Now I am exhausted from all the sun & fun and need a few days to readjust to being  in my own home with my own dust, laundry and yes, work responsibilities. Short posts this week. 

But the memories will last a lifetime.

You are a very lucky woman to have a sister that you can share such wonderful times with. I am sisterless, but I have two daughters, and I do so appreciate the femaleness of our relationship. And BTW...I love my son too!!

I love it when my two daughters get to see each other and have so much fun talking and laughing. Great post.

I have two girls also, and am glad each of them has a sister. They are both very close to their brother, but I think sisters are special. When youngest was born, at dinner that night middle (girl) told oldest (boy) - hahaha, I got a sister (meaning you did not get a brother). She might be the only kid I know who likes being in the middle.

Very glad you had a fun week!
