My Sister

July 9, 2010

Journaling Reads:
My sister and I haven’t always gotten along.

As a child, I am pretty sure I was not what she had in mind when she found out she was getting a sibling. She liked climbing trees and I liked playing with dolls. She was popular and happy and I was not. We had a lot of differences and she was often quite mean to me. I wasn’t a fan.

Then she went away. I was still in high school and she was in Canada. That’s when we realized how much we really loved each other. We wrote letters, sent cards, and really enjoyed each other’s company.

Unfortunately for us, we never really got to be in the same country again. She went from Canada to London and by the time she came back to Turkey, I was leaving for the United States. We never really got to enjoy each other’s company in person. But thanks to the internet and Skype, we get to talk often and our kids get to see each other and know each other and they get to see how much we love each other. I am so grateful for how much she loves my kids and they love her. And I am so grateful that we finally realized how good we had it all along.
