My daughters and I will head out first thing tomorrow morning for New Mexico. My niece is getting married there. We will stay just Saturday night and head home on Sunday afternoon. I will get to see a passel of nieces and nephews, and their kids. I will see my eldest brother and the sister-in-law who has been in my life since I was 13 years old. She is a sister to me.
I lived in this town for 6 years when I was a young mother. Unfortunately, those are not good memories for me since I was an active alcoholic at that time.
Praise God! I am not now. And haven't been for a very long time. 26 years and 9 months to be precise since a drop of alcohol has passed these lips.
I love the dry desert mesas and clear blue sky of New Mexico. I love my family. I have a chance to be with both of my daughters (which can sometimes be torture) for many hours. We do all have our own rooms at the hotel though. So there will be escape if necessary.
Have a beautiful Palm Sunday weekend everyone. I'll be back on Sunday night or Monday morning.
