We've 5 years apart, and have always been close (maybe due to that age difference or the fact that my younger brother would have been pulling out my pig-tails while I was tattling on him). lol. I hate telling her 'goodbye,' for several reasons that include the following: 1) I don't know when I'll get to see her again...maybe not until Christmas 2) She's the best sister you could ever have. She knows what I'm thinking, and we have no need to complete each other's sentences. We don't have to - we already know the other's thoughts. We laugh the same ... sound the same ... and past that, are as different as one could be from the other.
Ghirardelli chocolate at Disney. Can someone please tell me how I've made it through life without ever having had them?! Holy stinking cow!
4) I loved going to Sea World with her and her friends. I am a roller-coaster lover if there ever was one. Sure the weather was hot; sure we walked around soaking wet (everything) for hours after a water-ride b/c my sister and I just had to have the front row seats on this particular ride; sure we ate the park out of its food because you work up an appetite from all that walking; sure you aren't the biggest fan of that 'park' look (the 'I need a shower in a bad way, but am having too much fun to care' look); and sure your hands are gross after feeding the dolphins and seals fish. And of course, if you don't think that Shamu is your new bff by the time you leave, you might need to spend a few more hours there before you leave.
6) I loved dancing in the car to all of our favorite songs.
I've missed you girlfriends. And I'll be posting soon about a word the Lord has given me. But for now, I love the fact that I have 192 blog posts to catch up on according to my bloglines. ONE HUNDRED NINETY-TWO! You siestas can do some work in a week!!! LOL! PS - If you are a blogger, and don't use bloglines, PLEASE click on the link! Your life will be changed and you'll save yourself a lot of time checking in with other people's blogs. (Thank you Mandy for introducing me to it and making me more blog cool.)
