Just six hours now and I’ll be at the GB airport, waiting for my beloved Meghan to walk through the door!! We’ve been counting down together, sending little texts each day with the tally and now it’s here. I’ve been working hard to be ready – not that she is demanding or critical. It’s me, Mother, as she’s always called me, wanting everything to be just the way I know she likes it. All her bedding was washed and line dried, so will have that wonderful fresh scent. Her room has been cleaned – dusted and vacuumed top to bottom, thanks to my cousin, Susan, who lent a hand and a couple hours on Labor Day!! We have plans for a special luncheon on Saturday with our favorite Auntie Arlene and close cousins. Hotel and dinner reservations made in Chicago for one night – two days in one of our favorite cities – Michigan Avenue here we come!! Dinner and a night spent with Meghan’s Auntie Mumma, a story there, too 🙂 And that’s just for starters. We will have a TIME, let me tell you!
It’s been too long since we were together, but you can bet that I’m not dwelling there and am most thankful for for the time ahead of us. Counting my blessings sitting here in the sunshine, taking a break from my homework and pretty soon I’ll be counting the minutes and there you have it!! Bénédictions … and don’t be surprised if you don’t hear from me during the next eight days!!
