Images - Roots - What shaped me - What I knew...Whom I knew and Who made for me my base.....
Sister, Mary Ann and Aunt, Mary, for starters and then follow,
cousin, Suzanne and then, Mother, with both of us. sisters, sisters, sisters, always the two of us.
I drove down on Monday. Mary Ann was to have a colon screening on Tuesday. Mary Ann is my sister if you've never read this post. Our first medical thing for me to "help her with". She needed a driver. Neither of us was looking forward to any of it. It went great - good report - no weirdness - we were applauding ourselves for being "big girls" about the whole thing. Mary Ann being the more mature since she was having the procedure.
and I drove away from that world, Evergreen, my roots,
around 9:00 and came back to my present - which is a gift and so blessed - and so in the present.
But...while in E'green .... had the best visit with my Aunt Mary. I love her so - and my cousin, Melissa - but had already visited in B'ham, on the way down, with Cousin, Mary Claire and Couin-in-law and Friend, Martha. Blessed, blessed treats. Thank you, Lord. Plus, very positive, "I love my life" cell phone talks with Kate and Sarah....my two youngest. Thank you, Lord, again.
