Sister Love

Having celebrated my sister’s birthday a couple of days ago, this quote captured my attention. “A sister is a female sibling: the woman with whom you share your childhood, your secrets, and your clothes; the only person able to love you, protect you, and bother you all at once.”  Since I lost my mom and dad in 2020, my relationships with my sister and much younger brother have grown in importance to me. While my mom and dad are the two people who intimately knew me before I made my way into the world, my sister is the person with whom I shared everything. From our two little girl bodies sharing the same chair to sharing the same bedroom to making up our own special games to becoming adults who share memories that span our whole lives. Happy birthday Terri! I love you!
