MY BEST FRIEND
I have always enjoyed a close and very loving relationship with my sister. It wasn't until I got older that I realized not everyone is as blessed as we have been. I have learned that some sisters are not best friends, and they are basically at odds with each other.
My sister was here visiting last week. It was wonderful just being together. We really did not do anything special, just enjoyed being together. One of the things about family is that they know all about your "warts" and they still love you. My sister and I were able to laugh and share so many memories. With her, I don't have to explain the situation, she was there, or walked through that valley with me. She has always been a huge part of my life. In fact, I cannot imagine my life without her.
We are both grateful for modern technology, because we are able to communicate with each other throughout the day. We don't often talk on the phone, but we text each other all day long.
It was wonderful to be able to actually hug her before we went to bed, rather than texting her, telling her I love her and I'll talk to her in the morning. I actually got to see her in the morning.
Now that she is back home, I am anxiously awaiting the next time we will be under the same roof.
I am so blessed to have a precious sister such as she.
I tell her everyday how much I love her. And I thank the Lord for "making us sisters."
