“Brothers and sisters are as close as hands and feet.”
If church is time to be with your family, then my family’s church is our family text chain- most active on Sunday’s during the packer game 🙂
Mom & Dad (Mike & Cath) hold down the fort in the Quon & at The Lake.
Bug (Katie) is a nurse in the Windy City.
Buddy (Mikie) is an entrepreneur in LA.
I’m in CO, as you know.
And even though we are miles apart, I am so thankful, to not feel that way. I feel connected to my family. Sometimes more than others. But I sure am grateful to have a brother and a sister I also consider my best friends, who are supportive in a way that they can tell you how it really is, and still laugh and love them dearly.
In a flash, we are all suddenly adults, but our souls house our inner child.
The days of dressing up Mikie while playing “Donna & Jane” (Me- Donna, Katie- Jane, our imaginary dress up world as adults- this requires an entire post, ha!) are distant.
I am proud of who my brother and sister have become as adults.
I am grateful to have Mikie and Katie in my life.
I pray as we mature, find husbands & wives, and have our own children who have their own brothers and sisters, that they will have a similar, happy connection like we had growing up and have now. And of course that we will continually love each other, despite the trials and tribulations that life holds.
I love you Mikie & Katie.
Your big Sister

That definitely stayed with me.
