Okay, today really isn’t my birthday…that was last month. But my step-sister took me out to lunch today as a birthday treat! And it really was a treat~
We went to Olive Garden where we both ordered our usuals..soup, salad and bread sticks along with iced tea….yum! Then we sat there eating and talking for 2 hours!! We haven’t been able to do that since I don’t know when…you know, everyone is so busy nowadays and it’s so difficult to coordinate our schedules. But this was just the best way to spend the afternoon.
I feel so blessed that, when my mom and Kathy’s dad married, our families blended seamlessly. I didn’t grow up with a sister, but I honestly feel like Kathy is the next best thing to a blood sister…heck, maybe even better…seems like when you grow up together you carry a lot of baggage in that relationship. We all still get along well and enjoy spending time together…now if I can just see a little more of my niece and nephew and their families…
I’m still smiling over the pleasant visit we had today…thanks, Kathy…talk to you later!!
