This morning (Sunday, the 31st) I started a very short photo journal of Ally and Kate preparing for their trip to Israel. I am happy. I am sad. My girls will be together tomorrow, after nine long months. I am not with them. Shara will meet Ally and Kate at Ben Gurion Airport. As I write, they are still lifted on wings of jet power. But soon will be landing and hugging and bringing hugs from Momma and Daddy, too. And then, Ally will go on her tour, and Shara promises to stalk the tour, so she can be near/with her sister.
I documented their waking moments, the bags they will lug through Israel for the next week and hugs so-long until next week. I had a bit of Israel for Mothers’ Day, too, but I’d much rather be on the plane with them.
