I have a sister Heidi, who is about eighteen months younger than me. She, my mom, and I are about as close as it gets. Heidi and I are so very different in many ways but alike in few too. I love her with every inch of my being and I miss her so much!
She and I went to the same college and when my husband and I moved out to Colorado, she moved out there too. There have been a few brief times in our lives where we have lived far away from each other, but usually not for more than a couple of years before we miss each other too much and one of us moves closer to the other.
When we left Colorado for DC, she moved to NJ and was closer to my mom and I felt so alone. Now I am in NJ and she is in Florida! 🙁 I don’t think I have ever written about her on my blog before and that is just dumb. She is so important to my life and an enormous piece of the woman I am, so this is how I feel about my sister:
I miss you more than words can adequately express, but I am so EXTREMELY proud of you! I am so happy that you are pursuing a career you love and that you had the bravery to pick up and move where you wanted to live!
I can picture you finding so much happiness down there. I hope you know you are like the sun; you give off a glow and warmth that draws people in. Your energy and vibrancy are addictive and I know you are going to meet so many wonderful people who are going to adore you!
If anyone is a good demonstration of how you make people feel instinctively, it’s your nephew. The way he looks at you says it all!
I also hope you know that you are so wonderful to me and I do not know what I would do without you. You make me feel so understood and loved, even when I’m sure you have no idea what planet I’m on 😉 You are, truly, an amazing woman!
