Soulful Friday-A surprise visit from a sibling makes life wonderful.







Looking back over this week 


Made this Lemon no cook icebox cake for Easter Sunday.
It was delicious.




It was great having most of our family gathered to celebrate Easter Sunday together, but looking over some photos that I had taken this week, I realized the day that my brother stopped by and we had odds and ends for lunch really was food for my soul.

We are the only two left of our family.

Mom and dad gone and only other sister died almost 40 years ago.

We talk on the phone often and visit back and forth several times a year. They have 2 adult children but no grands and won't be having any.

My children have filled that hole in their hearts and therefore made them closer to me.

We were raised by a single mother in a home with our grandparents.

It was not easy for her or us.

The month of April is our wedding anniversary.
My only sister and I married in a double wedding.
My brother was 14 years old when we were married.
April is a full month for us.

Many birthdays, our sister who is deceased, 2 of our children and our wedding anniversary.
 
He is my family and I love him forever.
