Family Friendships

            So clearly I didn’t get around to posting earlier in the day. It’s after midnight but we will just call this my Friday post. I’m done with finals but I am now visiting my sister at Auburn before taking a trip out to Colorado during my one-week break.
            My sister and I are very different people. She’s an extreme extrovert has seen more friends in the past 24 hours than I could ever hope to know. I’m much more of an introvert as is probably fairly evident. We both tend to have gifts that are quite different than the other’s talents and interests.
            It’s been interesting to watch our relationship change over the past few years. We used to struggle communicating, and we had difficulty getting along many times, but as we’ve both gone off to college we have really grown to be better friends than we have to this point in our lives.
            I’m spending the next few nights with her here in Auburn, and getting to see life through her eyes. At least for one night, it’s been incredibly fun. I’ll keep tonight’s post short because it’s so late, but as I’m settling down, I feel incredibly lucky to be spending time with my sister, one of the most impressive people I’ve ever met and one of the people I trust most in this world.
            Here’s to you, Leslie. You’re the best. Love you.
