“Maryann’s Visit”


My sister Maryann,is on the bus,going back to Colorado. She has a long way to go 44 hours.  I don’t think,I could sit that long.

My sister isn’t home yet,and I miss her. I’m sure everyone in the family will miss her. It’s been twenty-nine years since we all seen her.  Of course we kept in touch with her on the phone. But it isn’t the same as seeing her in person. She is still funny with all her jokes,and sayings,and still beautiful.

My sister has been planning this vacation for quite some time. She said it took a long time to prepare for this,but was well worth it.

My husband Charlie and I invited her to stay with us for two weeks,which she did.

Everyone of my siblings,and most family members, took their turns to spend time with her. Sharing things and going different places that Maryann would enjoy.

She got to visit family members,just to enjoy the company,and swap different stories from the past.

Maryann’s things to do,  which she accomplished all.

She said,she would be happy,just sitting in the back yard. Just drinking coffee and chatting about the old times.

Which we did, but she fell in love with my enclosed first porch. Yes,that is where we did our chatting about the old times,and of course drinking our favorite drink,which is  coffee.

 

Yes I’m going to miss my sister, the laughing, the chats, our walks, and her just being near. My youngest sister Rosie,will surly agreed with me.

Me and my sister Maryann.
