Visit

We have just had a lovely couple of days with my sister and her husband staying from Wales. She is ten years older than me but I didnt know, until 25 years ago that I even had a sister. It turned out that my mother had her when she was 19 and as she was unmarried, living in small
Welsh village when things were very different, she had no alternative but to have her adopted. A few years later my mother met and married my father and although she told him, they chose not to tell my brother and I. Twenty five years ago after my sisters adopted mother died, she decided to trace her birth mother. Well we have been close ever since, she and her husband have two daughters similar ages to our daughters.
We had a lovely day today, walking in the woods and then going for lunch at the Greyhound in Aldbury.

My lunch of organic, freerange sausages (i think it was the pigs that were freerange, not the sausages!) mash and vegetable with onion gravey...delicious!

Just a little something from Judy said...

Wow! What a special story with a wonderful ending. I love to hear about things like this. I think it would be fun to sit around the table with all of you and hear your stories. This made my day. I appreciate all of the pictures. You are a beautiful lady!

Thanks Judy! I cant go into the whole story here, but it was amazing and truly God how she found us.

What a loving story! I am so glad that you were able to find each other after all those years. I am sure it was a terrible scandal at that time. Do you find that you do a lot of things alike even though you have lived apart?

Those bangors and mash look fabulous. That was one of my favorite dishes when we lived in England. I still make it here and it always brings back such fond memories.

What a neat story! How special to have had these last years to 'be sisters'. God is good.
