My sister and I used to have a challenging relationship (10 years between us, probably added a layer to that), however, in the last 1 1/2 years or so, we have become very close. Not only as the big sister do I feel immensely proud of her, but she is one of my best friends, and truly is there no matter what.
Look what I got in the mail yesterday (yup, she still calls me “Neen,” from when she was 5?). This people THIS, is what’s important. Family, and showing your appreciation. How lucky am I?
