Friendship Friday ~ Sister Love

I have been looking forward to this post for weeks. Ever since I knew that I would get a weekend with my sister around the time of the birthday that she shares so close to Grammy, I couldn’t wait to write about our time together.

It was wonderful. We laughed and cried and laughed a lot more. I LOVE being with my sister. Time together is never enough.

We had girls’ night with Mom and Grammy.544918_10152404786648483_8394842046929499919_nWe slept over, sharing secrets and dreaming of the charms to wishlist for our Pandora bracelets.10423267_738567129546657_8644179348919524612_n She was at church for a special time, as her little namesake took membership vows to join. My friend, Kathleen, will appreciate that someone came up to me Sunday and said, Don’t tell me this is one of your children, too?! IMG_2437Um, no, this is my sister.1016931_10152510985273235_7636329918823508929_n Little Roo has a tender heart just like her auntie.IMG_2303I often find her reading her Bible in the morning. So precious. It was her idea to talk to the elders and join the church. It was so special to have Dave and Burress be the elders who came to talk with her. She was a newborn when we came to Covenant.

Back to sister time . . .

It was good for my heart to have someone who hears it so clearly, who understands shopping angst and is willing to enter the dressing room and body image chaos with me, who knows me and all of my shortcomings from wayback and chooses to love me anyway.

I love my sister. I am so grateful for the fleeting moments we had together last weekend.

It’s never enough. Time together is never enough and always a gift. It was an exercise in being able to embrace the moments that we did have.

I love you, D!!!!! Can’t wait until Christmas.
