This weekend I got a chance to have a long conversation with my sister. Don't get me wrong, we talk all the time, but this conversation was special. You see, I haven't sen my sister in several years, the reason being...she is in prison over 1500 miles away from me. So for these last 3 years our conversations are through letters and phone calls once or twice a month.
But, back to our weekend call. I got the opportunity to tell my sister just how proud I really am of her. She has used this time to work on a lot of issues in her own heart. It hasn't been easy. There have been lots of tears, guilt, anger, shame...you name the emotion she has gone through it.
She gets out of prison in February - and she is scared. But I know with the changes she has made, the issues she has faced, and the love and support of her family she is going to do just fine.
My sister Margaret isn't just my sister....she is my best friend, my confidante, and as my husband says my identical twin that just happened to be born 12 years after me. (No, we don't look alike...but our brains think alike, we complete each others sentences, and we just know what the other one is feeling.)
Someday soon I hope she will see this blog and know just how wonderful I know she is!!!!
