Simple Pleasure - Living Near To Those Dear

(L-R: Gayle and Dayle)

(L-R: Gayle and Dayle)

She sent me a text the other day, as I was leaving work, saying turnip greens and cornbread were still warm if I wanted some. The food hit the spot, but the simple pleasure is knowing she's around the corner, a stone's throw away. I smile everytime I drive by her street. Life without her would be hard.

  1. I have twin brothers and grandsons. .I just planted turnips in my garden. They sound so good.

  2. Oh, Gayle,
    You are so fortunate to have your twin sister living so close to you. My sisters live in another state (as do my two daughters) and it is not easy to keep relationships "fresh" when we are spread so far apart. Cherish your closeness!

  3. Dottie, I would LOVE to have twin grandsons!

    Ms.Daisy, I do cherish our closeness. I lived four hours away for over 20 years.

  6. You know those feelings are quite mutual, dear twin sis. Love our closeness, in all the ways that matter.

    So glad you linked up today. I miss you when you're absent.

  7. Dayle, My sister is an hour away, and I'm glad she's that close! Family is such a blessing.

  10. I think you know by now HOW MUCH I relate to this. I have one sister who lives in Colorado, and we lost my brother many years ago. I will never take for granted the pleasure of living near my sister... and that mother of ours too.

    By the way, I love that picture of the two of you. Whenever you post Gayle/Dayle pictures, I think of the Mary Kate and Ashley identical twin song, "I am the cute one. She's just my sister."

    Grin.

  11. I always wanted a sister...didn't have one. And I'm currently living far from family...and missing them very much...so your sweet and lovely post has really struck a chord with me today. You are abundantly blessed, and I am rejoicing with you.

    Hugs,
    Patti

  12. These pictures are great and you guys are so lucky..my sister and I were separated when we were young. We both know how hard life is with absolutely no family in your corner. We reunited three years ago and although we're not twins..she's older than me...we've become very very close. She's now 6 hours away but she used to live an ocean away.

  13. Sisters are precious. I have two. One lives 25 minutes drive away the other lives in Arkansas which is a looong plane ride away from me. Modern technology keeps us close though and for that I'm thankful. What cute little babies you both were!

  14. Such a blessing to have your sister close by.

  15. Family...living close...yes, that is a pleasure. I know because our daughter and her little family live "a stones throw" from us!

  18. Gayle and Dayle, TREASURE and SAVOR each moment you have together. I am 43 and 2 years ago I lost my identical twin sister to a nasty disease called Leukemia, 10 days after diagnosis. Changed my life, changed me. There is nothing so precious and unique as being a twin!

    Thank you for sharing your pictures - it made me smile!

    God Bless you both!
    Dorothy
