Happy Birthday Sis!


Happy birthdayToday is my big sisters 32nd birthday. I haven’t seen her in years…I forget how long. Once in a while I stop and take stock of how long it has been but generally I try not to think about it because it makes me sad. My sister and I were never the inseparable siblings in fact there were times in our childhood where we would go at it tooth and nail – quite literally, but there were also times when we seemed to be there for each other with a quiet understanding. Days when she would take me out shopping with her or to grab a bite to eat, just she and I, and I miss that. I miss having a sister. We still don’t see eye to eye on many things but since she moved to Japan and then Prague…oh so many years ago, it has felt as though I no longer have a sister. Conversation is limited to a two or three line e-mail once every few months and while that seems to be enough for her it bothers me that we aren’t closer. That said, she has always been a lone wolf, doing things her way or no way and perhaps this is why we don’t mesh as well as my brothers and I. Or perhaps it’s because she left us and the three of us that remained came a little closer together. Who knows. I do know that it’s her birthday, and I miss her, so happy birthday sis!
