We have been through so many things over these 30 some years that I can't imagine life without her.
We have raised kids together, conquered a week long road trip together, she has been with me on all of my surgeries and illnesses, and now we are experiencing Grand-parenthood together as well as how to be an Empty Nesters. Yes, it has been a thrilling ride and once again, she is coming to help me out. I have been asked to stay in for another week until my immune system gets stronger and my breathing is better ( not labored at all ). So Shirley is flying in tonight to stay for a week...I can't hardly wait! I just hope I have enough air to laugh all day!
That fact that we haven't killed each other through all this is amazing, we are totally different people, but deep down we are still the true GRITS ( Girls Raised In The South). I can't imagine loving a real sister more than her. So you may not see a lot of me this week, but you can rest assured I will be well taken care of ( actually bossed around a lot ) and doing lot of the best medicine there is... LAUGHING!
Every day I thank my Heavenly Father for giving me Shirley in my life. The added bonus is her family, I love her kids and grand kids as my own...so the blessings just keep multiplying!
Thanks Neal and family for sharing her with me this week!
Good night dear friends!
Winnie the Pooh said this first, but I said it second....about Shirley!!!
