Are We There Yet?

Do you travel often? Though I daydream about it often, I haven't had the opportunity to travel much in the 23 years since I became a mother. But today, even as you read this, I am embarking on a very special trip. I am off to Texas to meet my next younger sister, who I haven't seen in 32 years! We were separated by adoption as children, and although we reconnected a couple of years ago -- through Facebook of all things -- the means to travel to physically reunite just haven't been there. But now, well, my sister is facing a very tough challenge in her life, so I had to find a way. In December she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Although she has a good prognosis for healing, she also has a long and difficult year of treatment in front of her. So in addition to reuniting with her, this trip will enable me to provide her with some much-needed support. I'm feeling very blessed to get to go, and to be able to support her in the way a sister should.

Because this trip is nearly the only thing on my mind at the moment, I thought it especially appropriate to share this darling card by designer Jerusha Borden today. She used the "Are We There Yet" set to make this. I love the fun colors and shapes she used, and how beautifully the airplane image stands out against the green matte. Of course, the sentiment totally sums up how I'm feeling -- "Are we there yet?" ;-)

Just a quick note that, although I will be away from home for a bit, I've scheduled posts here for the days to come, so there will still be fresh inspiration for you here each day. However, I may not be able to check email, so if you send a question or comment, please be patient, and I will respond as soon as I'm home again and able. Thanks so much, and have a wonderful week!
