Below are a few thoughts and snapshots from our special time together last week. (A big thanks to The Man for his help in making it happen, and to brother-in-law for doing without his helpmate for a few days.)
Our new favorite ice-cream shop on Galveston Island.
The Almond Joy flavor was a winner.
“There can be no situation in life in which the conversation of my dear sister will not administer some comfort to me.”
~ Mary Montagu
“It's hard to be responsible, adult and sensible all the time. How good it is to have a sister whose heart is as young as your own.” ~ Pam Brown
Only those who really know us know how utterly silly we can be whenever we're together. If only the walls of Cloud 9 could talk. This was the night of the "camera wars," catching each other off-guard, creating howls of laughter and memories to last forever.
“When sisters stand shoulder to shoulder, who stands a chance against us?”
~ Pam Brown
Evenings found us sitting on the beach, mostly in silence, admiring God's handiwork, captivated by the music of the ocean. It's a symphony that can't be matched, but the sisters may have broken out into three-part harmony on at least one occasion.
I can't imagine a world without my sisters, and I wouldn't take anything for these four days in August spent with them, my two best friends. To take time out to enrich any relationship, I believe, enriches all of our relationships.
Until next time, sweet kindred spirits, may you be blessed by the company of others.
