What a weekend…what a blessing. This weekend has been busy but so very good. It was a weekend full of family, Wicked (the play and it was awesome), and Easter. There has been more food than any one person should ever eat (and I’m already feeling guilty for stuffing myself), a daughter home from college, and my sister’s birthday.
I was blessed with a baby sister when I was two-and-a-half. Even though we look like polar opposites, we’re really two peas in a pod. We favor in ways only blood relations can favor – moods, quirks, mannerisms. We are so much alike even though we look like night and day. We celebrated my sister’s birthday today, and during the celebrations, I couldn’t help but think of the life we’ve shared. Life wasn’t always easy for us growing up, and it has had its share of ups and downs as adults, but still….no matter what, absolutely no matter how bad or good things are or have been, we’ve always had each other.
I am thankful for many things on this beautiful Easter Sunday, and my sister is one of them. I’m so very thankful for all my family. They make each day of life easier, more colorful, cherished, and filled. I am blessed indeed.
