Kinship and connection, love and affection.

Sorry for the brief post, but I'm spending these final few hours with my sister and her boyfriend before they depart this evening. It's been a great two weeks, and I'm very grateful to have had their company. It was delightful to have a reason to trek, schlep, tote, dote, laugh, and cook together. The dogs and I are going to miss them dearly! The only thing that keeps me from getting too emotional is that I know I'll see her again in a few weeks when we reunite with our parents. For now, I'll leave you with some lovely quotes about sisters, because I think mine is pretty fabulous! If you have a sister this special, I know you'll understand -- sisterhood is a powerful thing.
A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves - a special kind of double. - Toni Morrison
Sisters function as safety nets in a chaotic world simply by being there for each other. - Carol Saline 
The best thing about having a sister was that I always had a friend. - Cali Rae Turner 
Of two sisters one is always the watcher, one the dancer. - Louise Gl├╝ck 
Aub, thank you so much for loving me unconditionally. You graciously accept me for the peculiar and somewhat overbearing older sister that I can be. I guess some things never change:) Ha ha! You're one lucky gal...

Always my sister, always my friend.
Pin It!
