What can be even MORE fun than a Gammon Sister weekend? How about a Gammon/Mallek sister weekend? Yes, we reminisced and laughed until we were sick. It was uncanny to watch another family of four sisters interact with each other much the same as my sisters and I interact. It was double the fun and hopefully we can make this an annual event. <3 MUUUAAAHHHHH, Ladies!
Every year my husband threatens to dig up these thistles…and every year I make sure he does NOT! Dotted here and there amongst the thorny spines sprout these glorious little balls of blue…perfect in their beauty. I try very hard to always look for the little bright spots in a world strewn with tangles & rough patches. Hopefully…as I grow older…and the world more unpredictable… I will ALWAYS be able to see them. I KNOW for sure…I will NEVER stop looking for them <3
“The Spirit of the Pond, a vain and selfish entity, wants to preserve his beauty by denying the ancient Tree Spirits his life-giving water in a time of drought. He discovers that in trying to save himself, he will lose everything he holds dear. In the circle of life, we are all dependent upon the actions and kindness of others. ” ALWAYS relevant!
When you sit beneath a tree…close your eyes and listen to the canopy above, the leaves whisper secrets of the earth to you.
Growing up with SISTERS, taught me that although we are 4 individual souls, our hearts beat as one. We are tied together by love & laughter…loss & sadness…whatever one feels? We ALL share in that emotion. Lori- the oldest and the one with the kindest heart…a gentle spirit…Lynn- the toughest…on the outside & nothing but mirth & mischief on the inside…Lana- the baby…but the even keel we all need when our seas get rough. I LOVE them all…they make ME better. A Sister is the BEST gift a parent can give their child…AND I get to have THREE of them. How lucky am I? <3 <3 <3 <3
…One minute we are here…living, breathing, laughing…and the next? We are memories for those we’ve loved and left behind. We will ALL make this journey out of this world and into the next…what do you want people to say about you after you are gone? Think about your interactions LATELY…with those you love…with those you tolerate and those souls you do not know. Compare THAT with how you WANT to be remembered…? Every day IS a gift of opportunity laid at your feet. What will you do with tomorrow? <3
