Sunday Sketches (Oh, Hello there!)

(Oh, Hello there! #dailydoodle)

As you know, Michael and I've had a lot going on these past several weeks and there's still yet one other thing that's happened we've yet to share with you! Well, actually, it involves me! Are you ready? I have a big sister!!

All my life I've known about an older sister from my mother's previous marriage but have (unfortunately) never met her and honestly, never thought I would. Several years ago I tried to find she and my older brother, but was unsuccessful. I'm THRILLED to say she found me! (Thus where this illustration came from.)

Many, many tears have been shed and my heart is overjoyed! I look forward to sharing more about this story in the future. For now, please celebrate with me in this wonderful and beautiful reunion!!!

  13. Hi! I had my kids here yesterday and was exhausted when they left. being on the west coast I am behind everyone in time anyway, and was hoping to join in this morning a little late. Only it says you closed the linky 9 hours ago. Could that possibly be extended several more hours for us late-comers. Mom (Latane in Va) loves your meme and has encouraged me to join in. I promise I will connect in sooner next time!

    All the best Jan
