Summertime with my sister


photoTonight’s reflection is almost more of a prayer of thanks. I thank God for my family every day, but tonight I am particularly thankful for my sister, Julie, who has been such a generous host and awesome big sis this week. I got a chance to fly to Nashville to see her and it has been way too long! Still, that awesome miracle happens when we slip right into conversation as if nothing has changed. I wish we lived closer, but we are just a phone call a way. ¬†Unfortunately, we don’t call often enough.

While I’m hear in this beautiful city, even though I’m still working on my computer and still trying to keep my household stuff straight (though I’m thousands of miles away and can’t do anything about anything!), I am relaxing, SLEEPING, and reflecting on how far I have come and where I am going, Taking some time to get off the treadmill and hangout with friends and loved ones is essential, but it’s a lesson that I still need reminding about. Thanks for the week of sisterly R&R, Julie!
