you are truely a Godsend and if it weren't for you and only you, I
would have not been able to meet my sister. What you did to get me
the lowest rate Enterprise has with a free double upgrade was
awesome! It was so nice to drive in comfort and in a car I KNOW was
safe. Thank you from my entire family. You mean the world to all of
us! Lots of Hugs, Teraysa
I am very touched Teraysa!
That is beautiful!
I am printing this entire wish page and putting in the memory box
we are making for my sister daughter when she gets older so she can
know here mama.
Bless you sweetheart!
I posted a wish to fulfill a dream,
One so sweet, like peaches and cream.
When I felt that noone had given a damn,
I get a PM saying, HI I AM TAM.
This sweet, loving stranger that I did not know,
On my trip guaranteed me, I would go.
One hundred dollars, she sent me for gas,
Go meet your sister, GO!, hurry up, FAST!
On Saturday morning we were on our way,
on the wings of an Angel, named Lisa Kay.
This Angel, her sister truly misses,
I thought of sweet Tam, when I got hugs & kisses,
from a family I miss, because of help I received,
from Tam and her sis, I still can't believe,
that this dream of a lifetime had finally come true,
and all of it happened, because of you two!
God bless you both and many blessings for making my one dream in
life come true!
I love you,
Okay. I have to say that ALOT of wishes get me teary eyed but when
I read the part about 'what a hug' I lost it - I can tell you I am
sitting here bawling my eyes out so bad I can hardly type. How
wonderful for you. And then â€“ oh gosh then I
got to the part about sitting in your jammies talking and now I am
crying so hard I am huh, huh, huh, trying to catch my breath like a
little kid who has to leave the park playground too soon. Oh honey,
it was worth every penny I sent you if you can keep a hold of your
sister and be in her life, for that is a blessing to find her
again. Donâ€™t let
goâ€¦â€¦I miss my sis so
much, I just wanna hug her one more time! Thanks for sharing you
trip with us.
~peace and grace
*this wish was granted in dedication in memory of sweat angel baby
Lisa Kay-Surbrook Moore (1963-2007). ~ummmwah~
After getting really lost, and going through a bad storm with rain
most of the way home, we made it home 1 1/2 hours earlier, than it
took us to get there. Go figure! We got home at 10:30pm. Went to
bed without unloading the car. I made it home with .84 cents!
I have pictures I guess I will try to put them in my profile
otherwise, I will put in a link to my mySpace.
Thank you all for your well wishes and most of all, Thank you Tam
for making this wish come true. It has now been officially granted!
The rest of the day was spent playing various outdoor games,
eating, talking, eating & talking, oh yeah taking pictures
& eating. Lynn & Jim left to go back to R.H. to see his mom
(she's in a rest home not doing well) before they put her to bed.
We all spent the rest of the night doing different things. Michael
took the girls to the beach & bowling, & Terrie and I sat
in our jammies and talked about how we grew up. She makes jewelry
& very well I might say. We talked late into the night. We got
up around 8am on Tuesday and I decided to leave early to get home.
At some point on the way home we got lost coming out of the Mass.
Pike toll booth & ended up 75 miles out of the way but found
our way back to where we should have been. Thank God for nice
people who live in the boonies & know where the freeways are!
lol We hit a real bad storm in Connecticut, took about 10 minutes
to go a mile. NO visibility! Big trucks surrunding me. I felt
pinned in yet couldn't see anything.
what I wanted & settled for my fav., Chinese. Once done, we did
some window shopping (or at least I did) but it was fun. Saw some
more great street performers. It was starting to get late in the
afternoon and Melissa was feeling fatigued, so we went back to the
house. After we got her comfortable & the night nurse came, we
decided to make some appetizers for the next day. We made them. We
ate them. They were GREAT!!! lol Needless to say there wasn't any
for the next day. Monday morning, my younger sister & her hubby
Jim came in from Rhode Island. They could only stay for the day.
They live in Orlando & were up for 2 weddings, fortunately they
were close. I haven't seen them since we buried my mom last year.
We all had a nice home cooked breakfast & sat around feeling
like we just ate Thanksgiving. Homemade honeybuns Yum! We heard the
sound of sirens & a lound band following a bit later. The towns
Memorial Day Parade had been rerouted down their street. It lasted
a whole 11 min.
and cattle grazed the Common until 1830. British troops left from
Boston Common to encounter Colonial resistance at Lexington and
Concord in April, 1775. There were people dressed in period
costume. It was a great place. They had these tours called The Duck
Tours which tours Boston by land & sea on these remarkable
amphibious vehicles, tour the historic areas, then dive into the
Charles River to enjoy a breathtaking view of the Boston and
Cambridge skylines. When you are on the roads, people on the street
yell "Quack quack" at you & you yell it back! We laughed so
hard because my nephew Michael (30 & cute as heck!) kept
quacking at every person he saw. Our next stop was Faneuil Hall. It
was this huge building that you walked down the center of. There
were different places to get food side by side on both sides, all
the way down. We were told to do the entire walk before we chose
what we wanted, which my sister & brother in law also treated
us to. I had to walk it twice to choose
to watch the people. Once we got off the subway we walked up to the
street level into this huge park filled with 1000's of people. I
don't recall the name, but it had these big boats in the shape of
swans which we rode. Melissa got to sit in the very front with my
sister because of her wheelchair. ONE guy paddled this big
passenger boat around this lake surrounded by people. It was
peaceful serene & beautiful all at the same time. The sun was
shining, a warm breeze blowing, swans floating, ducks swimming,
people in their own worlds doing their own thing & I just sat
there with a big grin on my face soaking it all in. I was with my
family! After our walk through the park, through the people &
street performers, we made our way back to the subway, to head
towards Boston Common the starting point of the Freedom Trail, the
nearly 50-acre Boston Common is among the
nationâ€™s oldest public parks. Purposes have
varied over the years. Public hangings took place here until 1817,
Hiya so sorry, I came home sick, maybe allergies since everything
up there was beginning to bloom. My lungs sound like a jet rumbling
:) We left at 10am on Saturday. Bud had to stay behind as he is in
the process of setting up his company's new system for collecting
dart stats & they really needed him. So they offered him a few
extra bucks to stay around. Shawna & Jared stayed also to be
with their dad. Katie & Kelsea came with me. It took us over 13
hrs to get there + I got a ticket doing 80 in a 65 my FIRST ONE.
Our greetings were tired & weary but what a hug! It was the
most incredible experience to be standing in front of someone you
have been searching for for 30 years. After a good nights sleep, we
woke up & had our official greetings with the family. It was
weird shaking the hands of my neices & nephews, but we left
huggung sooo tight! We took the subway (something the girls & I
never did) into Boston. Kinda scarey. Saw a guy telling everyone he
hides in the subway......
Good lord girl dont keep us waiting! Tell us all about your
sistr....and your visit!

Hi All from Massachusettes!!! I am getting ready to go to bed as I
have a 13 hour drive ahead of me tomorrow. The drive herre was very
long and exhausting. I got a speeding ticket (my FIRST one) for
doing 80 in a 65 zone. Fortunately the officer saw that I had kids
in the car and knocked it down to 71mph, which is a $129.00
ticket!! Can't win for losing! So I will be hitting the road
sometime tomorrow morning. We all had a blast and this extension of
my family are a group of complete nuts! I cannot wait to get
together with them all again. Ok so nitey night and I will be home
soon! HuggZ!!! Teraysa
I pray you have a safe trip! What an exciting time this must be for
you and your family.
Tam your awesome for helping sassy! Your a true hero!
If there are heros out there following this wish (I can NOT be the
only one) please say some prayers this morning for sassy
â€“ she has a long trip and we need her to get
there safely traveling with four kids! Say prayers to help calm her
nerves as I know from past experience what she is feeling and all
the what ifs that are running through her head.
Praying that this will be everything you dreamed of for the last 30
years darling â€“ get going and have a SAFE
