My sister and I went to Buffalo for the weekend for Garden Walk. We have traveled together before but this was the first time that it was just the two of us. We had been planning the trip for months so I felt terrible when I had to call her Thursday and tell her that my family needed me to stay home. She was very understanding and supportive. Things worked out that I could go after all if I knew I could head home if needed. She was agreeable, so the trip was back on.
I was driving because I (thought) I knew where we were going. She listened to me worry for the 2 1/2 hour drive. I promptly got lost as soon as we got off the expressway. She patiently navigated us to a great starting point. My summer job has been physically tough and I was walking slow so she shortened her stride to make it easier on me. We met some great people, both gardeners and other walkers. She got me laughing as the day wore on. We had been invited to a party that we had really been looking forward to but we went to the hotel instead in case we needed to head home rather than be at a party and have to deal with bad news. We had a quiet dinner and let the hot tub work on my sore muscles.
Things worked out at home. Everyone is OK and all's well that ends well. We were able to stay over to Sunday and had a much better day. We shared our love of gardening with lots of laughter. I'm blessed to have a great sister.
Thanks Country Girl!
