After presenting all morning, attending sessions this afternoon, and dinner with friends I arrived at my sister's house this evening. She is out of town and when I literally dropped all my bags on her bedroom floor a pink envelope was waiting for me on the pillow. Just a sweet reminder that she loves me and that hopefully the sheets are comfortable. (Our great-grandma had a thing about sheets. That is a story for another day). She said she wanted to leave me something that wouldn't be eaten by the dog and a card was safe. I'd say a card was perfect. I had a really nice day today but I was worn out and the card was a nice pick-me-up.
I can't begin to express how grateful I am to have a sister. Well, not just "A" sister, my sister! Even though it seemed like there were so many years between us growing up when I would beg, my then teenage sister to play with me, it has never seemed to change the bond that we have. She's always been someone I can admire and a great model for dreaming big.
I think this is one of those cards that will go on my bulletin board at school next to my desk. It's humor and thoughtful presence will be a nice reminder that no matter how my day is going I'm lucky to have a loving sister. Love you too, Lori.
