While your waiting, as I am waiting for my daughter to return from her visit with her father, so I can learn as I am technologically challenged, to upload photos of our NYC trip onto my blog, I will tell you a little about my relationship with my sister.
I am happy to say, we picked up with nothing beyond some affirmation that she needed the distance, all these years she’s been out of my life. What brought this distance had everything to do with, her living her life, knowing it was less than I wanted for her, her life, her way, yet when he, her husband knew he was dying, he returned her to us.
It is something how, just like my mother, Tom rose to be more than I expected, when he was faced with death.
What’s amazing is however harsh I may have viewed their lifestyle I find my sister and her recently departed husband to have raised the most lovable children. If anything he made her strong. Or perhaps she always was strong, which is why she chose him, the man she loved.
I’ve been spending a lot of time being a big sister and aunt the past six weeks. I’m thankful he loved her enough to lead her back.
