Wednesday's Women No. 19


















We are all so happy. Someone that is dear to us will be arriving on a jet plane in four more days.

It is so unlike me to be so happy for other people. But this special person, this wonderful sister is coming back from the land of sun to rejoin us here in the land of snow.

Perhaps you missed one thing, Although she is definately coming back to the snow and we welcome her with the excitment of the all that pictures portrays! She could be bringing us the great pleasure of that sun and the heat to melt that white stuff away!!! YEH Jacquie, bring it on!...lol

love
Colette

I was thinking about J this morning and also felt excited for her return ... so what your saying is I only have 4 more days to keep you to myself? Michael's here we come!

Hurray!!!! That's worth dancing for!
I haven't seen either of my sisters in years. One of my nieces will be visiting me from Boston next week though and she's always a blast to hang out with!

I'm glad you have joyful anticipation ;)

I am so happy to hear this! It's been a long cold winter, so what a great time to have someone you care about come for a visit! Have a wonderful time with your sis :-)

Today that picture reminds me of how I feel after the worst of the chemo side effects are over with.

Mentally, I'm dancing around with joy.

How are you doing these days?

Sarah said...

Whoo hoo - am doing a happy dance for you hon!!! Sooo ready for some warm, sunny weather! That's saying alot for a cold weather gal. Tired of the white stuff!!! Hugs, Sarah

When we all lived in Massachusetts we saw each other a lot, esp for the holidays.
They've both been out to Calif to see me but not in a very long time. I've only been back home 3 times in 15 years. I don't travel well :(
At least we talk on the phone and email. Not the same though. No hugging.

You did tell me you have 8 sisters. That's a lot of love!!

I can't believe how off kilter I feel with my AJ. I am glad that she is being served for two weeks considering she serves us everyday of the year!

~Oh~ I love the feeling of seeing someone wonderful again~
~I can remember as a child waiting for family to come for a visit~ it felt like forever~sitting on the porch~counting the cars~trying to guess the color of the next car to pass~was the way to pass the time~
~That is the way I still feel today~while waiting~

Oh~ Happy visit to you~ hold her~ snuggle~ laugh~watch movies~cry~fight(if you need to)
~Sister~sister~wonderful sister!~

Michelle said...

I suppose a 'perk' of all this is seeing the people we care about.

In a sideways kind of way :0)

Love to you

Oh my, word veri is "unperk"

enter the twilight zone

How exciting! I'm so happy for you!
And I love your lady in the header. What a great spirit she has!

Lost Aussie said...

How wonderful that your sister is coming to see you! Oh Happy day indeed.
So glad you got your Wing and a Prayer piece. It was clearly meant to be FOR YOU!

Oh you wll have fun! Perhaps we could all meet at the cottage...It is warm there I just know it - there is sun, lemonaid and homemade bread without flax seed. I am making a cupcake for you especially ...I found a fairies stash of magic flying powder...I used all of it in your one cupcake! I think it's legal.... I could be wrong...

Eight sisters!!!!!!!!

Oy, your father must have had his hands full with all that estrogen under one roof:D

Have a wonderful time together, Renee. **Perhaps she can be a guest blogger, and give us some juicy details about you as a little girl. :)

Love,
Nancy

MarionL said...

What a bright, happy dancing girl! I love the red dress. I hope you have a fabulous time with your sister. I have 2 of them and they're pretty indispensible! LOL!

bookbabie said...

Yay, I have a sister in the land of sun too:)

Bella Sinclair said...

Happy Happy Joy Joy! Countin' down!

I only have one sister, and though she's far away, I know I can always count on her. Whenever I watch my two daughters play together so well, it makes me feel warm all over. I hope the love your sister brings melts away all the snow.

Hugs

Every Photo Tells A Story said...

But, then again, having her as a guest blogger would probably be boring since ALL she'd share is how wonderful a sister you were, and still are ;) (har-har)

P.S. My, your parents were busy loving each other!!

Dawn said...

Wow how cool, hope this means we won't see you blogging - I know that is selfish, but I would miss you
Have fun xxx
