Just like a sister!

Today my sister-in-law Shirley flew in town, to spend a week we me and my family. We are very close, I actually think we are probably as close as real sisters, ( of course I don't know if that is true, since I only had brothers ) I am just guessing. We try to get together, a couple of times if not more throughout the year. It is like we just can't make it, if we don't have some time scheduled in the future to get together. She and I were room mates during our college and Single years.  I think I have mentioned this story before. I got to thinking if I could hook her up with my brother and they fell in love, then I could have her as my friend and sister forever. That really sounded like a great plan to me and so that is exactly what I did...hooked them up, ( of course they had some say so in this whole thing ). And I have had, my best friend as my sister-in-law all these years.

We laugh and carry on so much each time that we are together, that I am sure it is healthy for us! Laughter is the best medicine they say. Trust me, we hardly ever stop laughing. I love having her here, what a treat! We are just going to play the whole week...doesn't that sound fun? I so many times get caught up with all the THINGS that I have to do in life, that I forget to have fun. So this was a really big deal to schedule this week together! 
We are both from West Virginia, and when we get together... our accents seem to get much stronger. It makes our kids laugh to hear us talk and joke around together. So not only are we having fun but we are entertaining, that is a good combination.

Just realized how thankful I am to have her in my life, and the bonus is I get to be close to her children and grandchildren too!  Gotta get to bed, lots of things to do tomorrow, night dear friends!
