Family ties

November 25, 2012

This year I drove down to my brother’s house in San Luis Obispo for Thanksgiving.  His girlfriend’s family was flying out from Chicago and they were planning to hike up Bishop’s Peak with Thanksgiving dinner in their backpacks and have a picnic just before sunset.

He asked me if I’d be able to make the hike.  I went to college in SLO and walked up that mountain almost every weekend, but that was long before my ankles were made of metal. I told him I’d be OK and still, he offered to carry me on his back if it got too hard.


As we all sat at the top for our feast just before sunset, Tom announced “I’m grateful that my sister is healthy enough to walk up this mountain and be here with me.”


I’m SO grateful for my little (big) Libra brother who’s always been a steady, strong source of support.
