Yesterday I talked about my sweet son who checked in on me to make sure I was okay with my silly empty nest sadness and today I want to share with you what my big sister Kathi did to help me. I wrote her this email throwing her a line to pull me in and rescue me. I wrote and asked her if she could come spend the night because I felt I might get the blues, in fact my exact words in the email were, "I'm scared I'm going to get the blues again, I can feel them looming around me..."
I was soooo happy when I got a phone call from her telling me that she was going to be able to come to the Mr. Bulldog event and spend the night with me! I was so excited! Not only did I really want her to be there to support Hayden for his big event, but I knew that I needed some sister time to get me through to help me so I wouldn't get the empty nest blues. I was very excited that she was coming, but this also coincided with our town's annual city library book sale! Kathi and I both are crazy about vintage cookbooks, so I knew this would be a fun thing to do!
Any way, after these pictures were taken, we stopped and got a delicious chicken salad and garlic bread and brought it home for lunch and we sat and ate and talked for hours. Then we went to the Mr. Bulldog show, came home, debriefed about the whole evening and talked about everything under the sun until 1:30 am, then we woke up at 7:30 am and had a lazy morning with coffee and more talking in our bathrobes until 12:30!!! It was so much fun and just the therapy I needed!
Thank you sister dear! I love you so very much! I also love my other sister, Kelli, who was busy with a party with her daughter on this night and she could not be with us. I know she would have been there for me too.
I am truly thankful for all of my loved ones and I feel so blessed!
