My sister Farrah

7 Jul

The longest relationship you will ever have in your life is with a sibling. Not the easiest, or the least complicated…the longest.  I was blessed to get 2 brothers, and 2 sisters. I was lucky. I was teased, and bullied and sometimes even a little beaten. I was so lucky. 🙂

What better gift can a mother give than a sibling, but for me, especially a sister.

If you don’t understand how you could both love her sister dearly and want to wring her neck at the same time, then you were probably an only child. 

My special sister is 6 years younger than me, but often 6 years wiser than me. She (hardly) never judges my thoughts, or actions, always forgives me, is always my biggest fan, never steals my thunder, looks up to me…and most of all, she loves me. I know she does because I can feel it. When we are together there’s a knowing in the silence, and when its my time to shine – she claps the loudest. She understands best all the things that have moulded me, and her smile can reassure me.

I just want to say to her Thankyou, Thankyou for being you , and that I know I really can call you at 3am, or ask a favour – and Thankyou for loving my children like you do.

I am so very blessed that you are MY sister… if I could choose a sister – it would be you. Thankyou for always thinking of me when I need you to, and a big Thankyou for the gorgeous flowers this week. 🙂 made my day (like you often do)

I love you Lilo. x x x
