Searching for SPING, finding old times.

 Well if spring won't come to me then I will go to spring.  That's right, I headed south for a couple of days.  And what amazing days they were, all spent at the spa, yes I said spa!!  When I left SLC, Utah, it was cold with rain turning to snow.  When I reached St. George, Utah, it was 75 degrees and sunny at 5:30P.M.
I was in heaven!!  But I still had 40 miles south to go to Mesquite, NV.  We arrived at 6:00P.M and it was 77 degrees, the birds were singing and the palm trees were swaying softly in the breeze.

I was set for three days of sitting in the sun and relaxing at the spa.  It was the first road trip my sister and I had been on in years.  Although we only live a few miles away from each other and chat weekly, this was a much needed get away.

My sister is two years older than me and has always been one of my best friends.  We look so much a like, I always get mistaken for her and she for me.  Growing up my mother would always dress us alike but in different colors.  We went everywhere together and depended so much on one another.

We have always been very close and have so many common interest.  I was great to sit and relax and talk about old times as well as the things to come. 

So, in my search for spring I found the sun, and the love of my big sister all over again.  I now watch my own daughters who are also two years apart and see them sharing the same love and friendship that my sister and I have shared and it warms my heart.

  The journey that I have shared with my sister has not always been sunny and warm or included palm trees, but I would not trade them or her for the world.  In a way she will always be the spring in my heart.
I hope she knows and I will make a point of letting her know more often just how much I enjoy her company and love her.  I look forward to may more years of sipping tea at the spa, and reading the morning paper while  laying under the palms.

I hope you can all find your place in the sun and someone special to share it with.  I wish you many sunny days, be well.
