Thursday's thoughts

I'm lonely this morning, I have no sister here with me. We had the most awesome time together, it takes so little to entertain either one of us....we get along so perfectly, and we are as different as day and night. I have spent all my life wanting to be more like Trav, when I was young-because she was so little and tiny and so outspoken and respected. Now that I am old, it's because she is the most forgiving and understanding and tolerant person I have ever been around, all of which are the qualities that each of us need more of. She has the beauty that no one thinks about, no one strives for, and the one that we should ALL have: the beauty of the inside. She can find good in any person, no matter how much they have wronged her or anyone else. Her love of God shines through on her face at every moment, and I honestly don't think I've ever met anyone else I can say that about. She loves to laugh, have a good time, and treasures every moment in her life. So, just like when I was little, I find myself wanting to pattern myself after my older sister. How lucky I am to have her. Enough said.

Once again, no time for blogging. Holy crap, when did I ever have the time to work? Today, I have to fill in at the ICS for most of the day, and my house looks like a tornado blew through. I feel like that tornado picked me up and carried me a thousand miles away, and that I walked each rough step back, so this day will be a challenge.

Have a great day, each of you. It is Thursday, only one more day until Friday, for all of you employed folks, wooo hooo! I feel I'd better enjoy my limited time off now, as the end of the month is fast approaching and my days are numbered. Actually, I can't wait to get back to the grind of working, life without work is pretty chaotic for me.

I will be around. :)

I wish I had the same relationship with my sister. I wish she could get over herself and not be so self-centered.

Your sis sounds wonderful and I am glad you had a good time. Don't work too hard!

Your description of your sister fits her picture. I'm so glad that you had the time free to spend with her. We all need people like her in our lives.

Oh Jamie....its absolutely wonderful that you feel that way about your sister. You're both lucky to have EACH OTHER. Enjoy the rest of your time off...well, apart from the ICS that is. LOL. There is just no rest for us, is there? Big hugs.

What a beautiful post. You are lucky to have such a wonderful sister, and such a good relationship. I am envious. (Of both of you, because I think you're pretty special too.)

What a wonderful post. It is a great thing to have a sibling with whom you are so close. My brother and i have stayed close no matter the time or distance apart. Meanwhile, my husband's two sisters barely speak!

Your sister sounds like a wonderful person! And she's blessed to have You in her life.

Don't push it too hard at the ICS, okay??

Amanda said...

To like someone, not just because they are a family member but because they are good people. That is a real blessing.

Best of luck with the new job. Sounds like it will be a better fit for you.

Trav sounds like a beautiful person and an awesome sister but you know, you're pretty amazing too.
