What a summer!  It’s been an eventful summer for my family and I this year! Summer is almost over, and I have to admit, I’m ready for cooler weather! Georgia heat and humidity can be brutal. I am hoping it will cool off here by October!

The first thing this year for us was our son Jared moving back to Korea for a year. I hated to see him go so far away. It always rips my heart out when either of the boys are far away from home. But, the good thing is, David and Hensley got married this month and Jared flew home from Korea to be David’s best man in the wedding! Dave and I flew to Arizona for the wedding. When Jared volunteered to go to Korea for a year he was allowed a “follow on assignment” of his choice. He chose Italy. He has orders for Aviano, Italy and will be there next April. The funniest thing is that David called us yesterday to let us know he has an assignment to Aviano also! Guess when he has to be there? April! I’m so happy our boys and Hensley will all be together and Dave and I can visit them all at the same time! We better get on the ball getting our passports renewed!

I had a successful surgery in June although it was very frustrating not being able to do anything for 6 to 8 weeks! I put on 6 pounds, which equates to about 15 pounds to an average height lady! LOL I’m only 5’3″, so any excess weight shows up quick! I’m working on losing it now that I can work out and lift more than 10 pounds.

I already mentioned our oldest son David getting married, but would like to say that I just adore his wife Hensley. I truly love her as any mom would love a daughter and I am so happy to have her in our family. We had a great time visiting with them.

A week or so before the wedding I came in touch with my half sister Robin who lives in Phoenix. We hadn’t seen each other or even talked for about 20 years! Our family is a bit messed up to say the least so I won’t even try to explain! LOL Robin was born the same year my brother Brian was born, so I am 12 years older than Robin. The last time I saw her she was so young. Robin came to David’s wedding and spent the weekend with us. We had a wonderful time catching up, laughing and getting to know each other. Looking into her eyes is like looking at our grandmother who passed in 2001. We are keeping in touch now, and Robin, my other sister Deb and I are planning to get together early next year! Deb has never met Robin since she was just a baby when our parents divorced. I can’t wait for us all to get together!

Two years ago, in 2008 I went to Knoxville, TN for an Intuitive Showcase. (Psychic fair) While I was there I did a reading for a young lady named Courtney. She called me a couple of weeks ago asking me if I would be willing to drive to Knoxville to do readings during her bachelorette party! She’s just having a few of her closest friends there. I’m honored to be asked to be involved in such a special occasion. Dave and I will drive up there and spend the night and come home the next day since it’s about a 4 or 5 hour drive. The drive from Georgia to Tennessee is so beautiful! When I drove up to Tennessee in 2008 I got so many signs from spirit letting me know they were with me! I can’t wait to see what they do this trip! 🙂
