My sister's birthday
Wednesday, February 06, 2013
Today is my sister's birthday. I am so grateful to have a sister whom I can also call a friend. We are really pretty close - which is kind of odd because we disagree on all sorts of fundamental issues. But we just - by tacit understanding - never discuss any of those issues. And we have many other things in common - most importantly, our memories of growing up together. Also our memories of our dad, taken from us too soon, and of our other sister, taken from us far, far too soon. We are family. I am also very grateful that, in spite of our differences, we stand together and work together when we need to.
I am going to try to occasionally blog about the things I am grateful for. There are many of them. I am blessed!
This is not the greatest picture, but it is probably the best one I have of my sister. I took it at her wedding and I am not a particularly good photographer. Unlike me, she doesn't have a weight problem. She is wearing the wedding dress our mother wore for her wedding many years ago.
