But I started noticing she was just drawing...And then writing her older sister notes like the one below:
I'd see my High School daughter walk by, smile as she read the message, and write a response:
Now they write to each other all the time. One sneaks into the den and picks up a pen when the other isn't looking. And the excited look on the other sister's face when she realizes a message has been left is priceless!
I do not have a sister but when I had my second daughter, I thought my feet would never touch the ground again! I was so happy they would have each other in the world. They are seven years apart in age but suddenly I see a fostering of closeness that I guess only sisters can have. They'll both snuggle on the couch together to watch a movie, under the same blanket, although there is plenty of other space to spread out. They'll sit together in the chair at the computer watching "Funny Baby" videos on You Tube. No matter where my High School daughter is, her younger sister is not far behind...
Those of you who have a sister know what I mean. For me, I am so very glad they have something I do not...a friend and confidante for life! It brings me so much joy!
