Quite Simply

In total gratitude for my sister...

Who listens,
without judgement.

Who gently puts forward choices and suggestions from the heart,
without "giving advice".

Who talks of her own dark times as if she's spent time in this same old crazy head of mine.

Who offers to jump in her car
and drive 2 hours
at 9 o'clock at night
to come all the way here
just to give me a hug.

Who cares,
without smothering.

Who understands who I am and who I'm not,
and who knows that I understand the same about her.

Who shows respect,
and even admiration,
without pity.

Who knows when to make me laugh,
and when to just cry along with me,
and when to get angry for me,
but without blame,
because it won't always be this way.

Who is my pragmatic twin
but my emotional opposite,
and yet we are perfectly balanced.

And who, quite simply, just loves me.

Hey Wendy,

It was really great to meet you on Wed night. Hoping that i will see you again sometime soon.

The bond you have with your sister is incredible.

So lucky to have her there in those kinds of times.

I hope all starts to really pick up for you. Sounds like you have had some rough days.

With love
