Midwest Journey

kinship!In the morning I leave for Indiana. I will be traveling the same roads I did a year ago on my first day of the Tree Hugging tour. My excitement overflows and I wonder when sleep will find me tonight. My travels tomorrow will bring me to a visit with my brothers. There is a special relationship with my brothers. I always longed to be closer to them in life! As a young girl and woman I wanted to be part of my brother’s world. They are 10 and 12 years older than me. When they left for college, I was in elementary school. When I left for college they were married with children. When I was married with a young child they had teenage children. Needless to say we have always been on different paths for all of my life. This week will be the first time that all of us will be together without parents, children or the holidays. I am delighted! They both have been the biggest advocates during my transitions during the past 2 years, actually for my entire life. I just did not recognize all the love and support from my brothers until my life turned upside down. My life so needed to be shaken up in order to settle into something wonderful. I did not realize that I would have to wait until I was in my 40’s to be on a similar path as my brothers, but I will take it and enjoy every moment of it. Stay tuned for journey pictures!
