How was your weekend? Mine was great. My hubby and I got to spend some much needed time together. We went and saw Super 8 and I’ll just say its super great. Ya gotta see it! It made me feel like a kid again. It was like an awesome Goonies and E.T. mashup. Anyway…that’s all I’ll say. If you do see it, let me know what you think.
I was at my sister’s house last night. She’s such beautiful person, inside and out. She took the task of being a big sister with full care and responsibility. I’m so thankful to have her. Through the years she has managed to be my role model, therapist, encourager, rival, teacher, best friend, peacemaker, financial adviser…and she did/does it all while still being ridiculously fun. I guess she learned that from Mom. We had our fights, no doubt, but I honestly don’t remember them nearly as much as I remember all of our good and dorky-to-the-core moments. Just a sweet thought about my sister that I gotta share. I could be off on the dates but she was about 13 and I was 6, she didn’t have money to buy me a birthday present. She wasn’t really crafty but she knew I loved my Barbies so she sewed me little Barbie clothes. How sweet is that? It really touches my heart that she took the time to do that for me. Of course, being 6…I was bratty and didn’t appreciate the clothes at all. I know…I was a mean kid. If it matters, I appreciate it NOW!
Do you have a sibling or best friend that you’ve stuck with through thick and thin since you were young? Realistically, I get that it’s possible for our bond to be damaged. I pray that it doesn’t. However, we’re messy people with messy lives. Ya never know…but I do know it can never be broken.
