Whew

Writing all that down (last post) made me feel better. So I thought I'd also write that in the last few days I have been reminded what a wonderful sister I have. She is beautiful. (I meant inside, although also on the outside, but she's also taken, so...Sorry. Actually, they both are, but I was thinking of my older sister.)

Ahem. She called me two days ago and left a voicemail asking about a song she heard on the radio and thought I might know...but all that's beside the point. The point is, when we did talk, I was reminded and it was reimpressed on me what a beautiful, wise, practical spirit she has--how she faces life and deals with it. I love her attitude and am proud to realize how good an attitude it is; what she's dealt with in life and how she's grown through it.

I remember when we were kids and she was the 'rebel' (of the two of us) and I was the 'obedient' one. I'm not sure anymore we're actually all that different--in a lot of our attitudes and personality--but we do seem to have opposite approaches to life--she's always been more willing to take action and be brave and I've always been more intent on obeying and thinking about things. Am I right? (She reads this blog sometimes; she can contradict me. But I think I'm right.)

I'm just glad to have her. Even if our conversations these days are sometimes few and far between, I'm glad to realize how good and loving and determined she is about life--how she is a lot of the things I've been reaching for in my own life; it's good to remember again I'm not the only one. That in fact many people desire and struggle for good things. (And all people desire them.)

If you read this :P
So there.
I love you.

She is a good chica. I'm glad you've gotten closer and closer to her.

About the review- I wasn't really trying that hard. But I often don't have much patience with long reviews, so it's good that mine wasn't long.

Hey Lita..it's me again. It sounds like your sister may very well be the confidante you we're speaking of earlier. My own daughters sound so much like what you described. In many ways very different but very bonded by their Love for God and each other. They've turned out to be best friends after 33 and 36 years of life.

'Course, the other one's pretty awesome, too. More than I used to realize.
