MY BIG BROTHER AND MY LITTLE BROTHER
Have I told you lately that I love my Big Brother sewing machine? Absolutely in love with it! Oh, and I love my little brother, too. My flesh and blood brother. He had a little heart problem this past week, and ended up in the hospital. Now mind you, this is my brother who has never drank, never smoked, has always been very active, excellent health.........and he ended up with a racing heart beat. He is home now, is on 3 medications, and feeling better according to his wife. I sure hope it's not going to be a lasting problem. He's too young, just 61. We have a sibling get together scheduled for Saturday, so we are all hoping he is fine and will be able to attend.
One year ago today we flew to Anchorage for my dear sister-in-law's funeral. We sure miss her. I've been thinking of my brother-in-law and the three kids and the grandkids all during the Christmas holiday. I can imagine that's it's been so hard for them to celebrate without her. We did go down to Seldovia to spend some time with Chris and Amy before we headed north to visit The Great One, our first time visiting her in the winter. She was beautiful!
And Minnesota is still without snow this year. The whole state is brown.....very strange for the last couple of days in December! But the longer it stays void of snow, the shorter the time until spring will be here!
