Hillary and Phil come home in three days.
I'm very excited, but as the older and much wiser
sister I've had to come to grips with some realities that I would rather not...here they are:
1. I have expectations that may not be realistic-they are adults and may not want to spend every waking moment with me
2. I have to share them with my other sib and family members. Being the oldest, I've usually been able to weasel my way into Holly and Hillary's lives by mere use of age...this may not be so easy now.
3. Phil likes to eat at strange times. When I call to see "what's going on for dinner" I may be met with "we've already eaten and yes it's 2:00 p.m. (or a.m.!)." I just can't compete with Kuwait time
4. They may not want to come to church...this is the hardest one of all because why would you not? There's plenty to roll your eyes and laugh at...so to me it's worth it!
5. They like my parents best - enough said.
6. No, Hillary will not buy you that Coach purse...
I'm so excited for them to be here and whether or not I deal with my realities...it will be so fun to have them here!! Even if it is for a short time.

- I work at a Christian School district only 4 miles from my home. The people there are full of grace and love and I am glad to be a part of this ministry. I have a neice and nephew whom I love dearly. They are 12 and almost 15 respectively. I have two amazing sisters and two amazing brothers-in-law. Of course, I would not be here if it were not for my mother agreeing to marry my dad. Good going mom! My parents are my life and I would literally be NOTHING without their unconditional love, support and care. You rock mom and dad. Then there's Will & Lora...their giggles are like sunshine and their parents crack me up too.
