Today, I’m thankful for my two awesome sisters. I am missing them today, since I’d love to be getting ready for Thanksgiving with them. I admire both of my sisters a ton.
My oldest sister, Nicole, is a domestic queen. She cooks, bakes and sews, all while being a mom to 6. She also works very hard to make sure that her family eats healthy, avoiding processed foods. Nicole is also an incredibly loving person– she is very patient with her kids and everyone in her life. And, I can always count on her to listen when I need it. I love having kids about the same age as hers. One of my nephews is right in between Reed and Lena in age, and another is just a few months older than Gus. We can always commiserate about 5 year olds or toddlers.
My sister Lisa was my biggest role model in school. I was glad that she was 6 years older than me, because she set the bar high and I could hope that teachers had forgotten about her or didn’t connect us by the time I came around. We didn’t get along as kids– at all. Yet, I secretly admired her. I would copy her, but try not to make it too obvious. I’d go into her room when she was not around and steal her clothes and books. I even went to a college that she had gone to for a bit, but I should have learned from her mistaken, since we both transferred out.
Not exactly the most flattering picture of any of us, but one of the only ones I could find.
Hm, is that better?
Happy Thanksgiving! Miss you. Play some Apples to Apples and Balderdash for me.
