REASON NUMBER TWO

BEING WITH MY SISTERS

Last year when Omega and I went together to the Festival I realized we had not spent so much one on one time together since she was a young child. I am older than my sisters and much of their growing up was done when I was already out of the house.

As we become older, we have become much closer. Recently we have been having one medical crisis after another with both my parents.  There is nothing that will bring a family together faster than an emergency.

Each of them has considerable stregnth and talents. Omega is one of the smartest women I know, and unfortunetly, a little insecure despite everything. Kit is the most loving and generous person on the face of the earth. She has become a rock for me in regards to my parents. I am very guilty and concerned having moved so far from Mom and Dad. Kit, even though she lives in Louisville, has stepped right in and taken the reins from me.

All three of us are different variations of my Mom. Scary and wonderful all at the same time.

We were planning a trip to Ireland together, the three girls alone and together, this year but it fell through due to my circumstances with the move and the job situation. It saddens me that it did not happen.

It would have been the trip of a lifetime.

I only have one sister and she was ten when I left home at 17! We only lived close by a brief time. As adults we only lived near each other for two years when her first daughter, My Godchild, was born and the first two years of her life. Since then we have been over two hundred miles apart. It's really sad. I have had my three brothers closeby though.

I always wanted a sister myself - hey, I would've even taken a darn brother if I had to!  Plan for Ireland next year, it really sounds like a trip of a lifetime.  Now, can I be adopted? :-P

That's so great that you have grown closer with your sisters. My brother and I just drifted further and further apart the older we got. Now I pretty much never see him.
