I Can't Breathe




I am so excited. That's why I can't breathe. Just one more day and I will be enjoying the company of my three best friends...my sisters. Yes, it's time for NG8!

NG8 is happening in San Antonio this year. This is one of the biggest trips we have taken. Plus, we are adding an entire day and night to the whole experience. This year starts on Wednesday and goes through Sunday.

We have been firing off the emails daily, building up the excitement and anticipation. By Wednesday morning when my Taxi by Terry picks me up I will be absolutely giddy. I am hoping the giddiness will help me overcome my fear of flying. Flying is one of my least favorite things to do. You can say a prayer for me.

I am anxious to hear what each sister did for her random act of kindness in mother's memory. I am anxious to see the little gifts we will have for each other. I am anxious to hear what Debe has prepared for our reflection time and see what challenge she will make to us for the next year. I am anxious to help decide whom we will reach out to with encouragement this year.

Every year when I write about our trip I always try to encourage others to start a tradition like this with their sister(s). It doesn't matter if you just have one or have five or just have a brother.............do it! It is the greatest gift we give each other and ourselves all year.

I thank God for my sisters and for our times together.

I am excited for you! There are so many in these times that devalue family, but you match your actions with your beliefs... :)
