KARMA AND THE TWISTY CONE

Granddaughter Number One With Green Apple Cone!

It has been a whirlwind lately! We spent time with wonderful grandchildren, and with the above Miss Twisty Cone in particular. She was visiting us from the Seattle area.
During the course of the visit, Grandpa would frequently dangle the possibility of getting ice cream from the Twisty Cone. This did not happen, until. . .
We took this grandchild to the airport to head back last evening. As we were checking in we were made aware of a problem with the flight coming in from Atlanta. It was to be delayed for an hour and 3/4, and the connection would not be met. It was a dilemma that was solved by rescheduling the flight to early this morning.
Our Granddaughter was not happy! She was ready to go home to her Mom and friends, why did this have to happen, etc. As we were leaving the airport parking lot, I had a epiphany--it was Karma who was delaying us, and Karma wanted us to have a Twisty Cone!
We had a good laugh at this, returned home and feasted on pizza. Then we merrily drove to Twisty Cone, had ice cream (even the dog), and satisfied Karma.
Granddaughter got her flight this morning and arrived in Seattle this afternoon. We will miss her, but all is well! Are you happy now, Karma!

Have a playful week!

The Sister Connection


I just had to do it--call my little sister! If I don't, I walk around with a feeling rattling around in the back of my brain that tells me I have forgotten something important.

So you make the call and reconnect. Even if it is a short conversation, it's enough to say, "hey, I'm here and I'm thinking about you". It's good to strengthen these family connections. No one knows you as well as a sister. And amazingly they usually like you, regardless!

I like the quote: A sister is a forever friend. I hope that this will always be true!Align Center

Here's to all of our sisters--blood relatives and chosen ones! Let us share our love with them!

Love you Sis!
