I rely on my sisters more than I think. When we were growing up we lived close to the highway and didn't have kids as neighbors. We had Bob and Betty. Bob who mowed the lawn every day and Betty who yelled at us for playing near her garden. No children. My sisters were my best friends and still are. Jen being a lot older than us forced her into the idol role. We wanted to do everything like her and with her. Poor thing. Kate was the ever responsible one. I worried about disappointing her more than disappointing our parents. My other half and twin Loo is the reason I never felt anxiety moving up through school. Imagine having a sibling who goes through every life change with you. Starting school, moving into high school and then leaving home and going to college, she was there with me. My little support system. Well....not so little, she's a full inch and a half taller than me.
This picture makes me think of her.
