Would we be best friends one day, my sister would have probably have been kind and said yes. I would have probably rolled my eyes and said something snotty.
Needless to say, it took quite a few too many years for me to figure out that I have a really good sister. Thankfully, nowadays there are plenty of phone calls, recipe suggestions, question asking, shared interests, political debates, sarcastic jokes, and handbag purchase consultations.
And I've rarely told her how grateful I am for all of it, so I especially wanted to on her birthday. I wish I could go back and tell that mean older sister that she shouldn't waste so much time before realizing how lucky she is.
