Gratitude Challenge: Day 13

One family member I'm really close to is my sister.  After a decade of living far away, I'm now close to her in the literal sense as well -- she and her family moved to San Ramon last year.  We're 18 months apart and grew up fighting like cats. It's kind of hard to see a person's "inner nobility" when you're trying to scratch her eyes out, and even when we were on good terms I never really reflected on the kind of person she is.  But as I've come to know her as an adult and a woman and a mother, I can see that she's one of the kindest, most generous people I know.    I'm so grateful to be her "little sister" (I'm actually 6 inches taller than she is) and grateful that she's so close by.

Very cool. My little sister is also one of my best friends. Nobody else knows where you come from like your sissy.
