Flying to Nebraska ~
Charlie and I drove our daughter Diandra to the airport this morning. She is on her way to see her brother Rob and our Nessa (his lovely wife) in the state of Nebraska. Although I am sooo jealous (in a good way), I am also very excited for them. They haven't seen each other for almost two years. It has been such a pleasure watching Rob and Diandra growing up and how they have grown so very close. On occasion, I have not only heard them on the phone talking, laughing and confiding to each other, I have also heard them tell others that they are best friends. It warms my heart over to know that not even the time of absence and miles of separation can keep the bond that they have from growing apart.
I called my son Rob to make sure he was there to pick up his sister at the airport. To hear the excitement in his voice and knowing any minute he was going to be reunited in the flesh with his sister... well, I could hardly keep my happy tears contained. I wish that I could have been there to see it. I think it is any parent's dream that their children are close through out the years.
On returning home from the airport, I have found countless little sticky notes all over the house, with scribbles of love written by my baby girl. I already feel lost and lonely without her... and it hasn't even been one day. But, knowing it is so worth it! Babies of mine ~ ENJOY!
