The little one said,
“You are so colorful and cast the larger shadow.”
The big one replied,
“We are made of the same elements and you chose a different path.”
“You are always busy, filled with life.”
“You are content in keeping your feelings facing away.”
“It pleases me to be the observer, I like to watch.”
“You are my balance, my friend and companion.”
“I know you’ll always be near.”
“I could not exist but for your support.”
Then the Earth smiled at the Moon.

Pure delight. You enjoy the children so … and I know they must enjoy you, able as you are to enter their world and support it. Just wonderful. On a “catch-up” visit here …
I feel so flattered to be your friend. THANKS!

Thank-you my friend…believe it or not, my sister and I have never had one unkind word for each other.(I am older by 5 years and we have a brother in between.)
The more that I hear about sibling relationships, the more I treasure her!
