I spent yesterday with Grace and my sister Kim. We had lunch and did a little shopping. You see it was a particularly difficult day for us yesterday since it marked the third anniversary of my bother-in-law, Kim's husband Charlie, losing his battle with lung cancer.
All in all it was a good day as we spent time together laughing, talking, and having Grace try on faux fur and model for us at this really posh decor store. And being true to form my sister never ceases to surprise me. On this very sad day where Kim could have stayed in bed and ignored the world, which she had every right to do, she came out and met us with such a fresh spirit and positive attitude. And knowing that I am in the throes of redecorating my dining room with blues and white and touches of silver, yesterday she gave me these.
No she didn't go out purchase them, they were actually something she happened to have in her home, and they came to her mind as we spoke the other night on the phone.
Sisters really are one of God's best creations...they know us as well and sometimes even better than we know ourselves. Words are not always needed as the bond between sisters, I think, possesses a bit of magic.
I thank our lord everyday for the great gift he has given me in the way of my sister Kim. And I know that Charlie is smiling down on both of us as our sisterhood grows even deeper.
I love you Kim and thank you for being such a special person in my life!
Your Big Sister
