a wee bit sad in my heart
My sister and her boys leave tomorrow.
I know, I know, they've been here for nearly two weeks now and I should be grateful we've been able to hang so long, but look at this day we've spent together. How could I not miss days like these?
Most of our days have been made up of lots of babies crying and kids fighting and a messy (I mean seriously messy) house. But I love it.
I think she thinks I'm grateful they're on their way. Let this be the final word...I wish you could stay with us forever.
Sisters are built-in friends, and I've seriously lucked out because I have three of the coolest sisters of all time. I wish we never had to say goodbye to each other.
I wish every day could be like today. A little less crying than usual, lovely fall weather and a walk downtown.
I suppose the saying "distance makes the heart grow fonder" is true, but to be honest, I wish I never had to experience any distance so I wouldn't know any differently.
Oh...I suppose life will go on, and Minnie and I will survive our days without Char and her ragamuffins (just barely).
And then we'll see them again in GUAM for Christmas (wahoo!) and it will feel like we'd never been apart.
Just the way I like it.
But I'm going to miss you like mad, soul sister.
Am I crazy to be tearing up now as I write this? I can't help it.
