Yes, it happened. The girl that I was just speaking of last week in a post. I am stunned to learn of people who read my blog and others who wait for me to post. Sometimes blogging feels like work lately but I am thankful for things on my hear that I type out on here. Because of a post on my heart, it lead Jessica to wanting to surprise my sister and I with a trip to Kentucky to meet us.
It has been 24 years since I met her. So obviously, I do not remember it. We have been Facebook pals for a few years now but when my Mom let go of the secret I was ecstatic! But as every worry wary would, I got a knot in my stomach of the worries about what we would talk about or compare.
Who am I kidding though?! Jessica was so talkative, sweet and funny! As soon as she walked through the door we all were hugging, laughing and talking like we were old friends, rather than long lost sisters. It was so nice to be able to sit down with her for two days in a row to talk about our families, our lives and how we think of the man who was suppose to be a Father to us.
The second day we made plans to go to The Paint n' Place for a fun trip. It was so funny to see how cool, calm and creative she was with her piece - just like my older sister was. I on the other hand was an awful mess and stressing about each mark. What can I say, I would be a perfectionist, if I could just get it perfect ;)
I cannot thank her and her Mother enough for making this trip. My heart is so full of love and happiness to have been able to meet her. I am ecstatic for the next days we have together!!
