Today is my sisters' birthday. I don't get to see them nearly enough as our family is spread across the country and even that is closer than we have been. It's funny that growing up I felt mostly annoyed by these two younger creatures that never did what I told them to. Getting two sisters at once seemed incredibly unfair. Yet if anyone else said or did anything untoward with them, I was all over that. It wasn't until I left for college that I realized how much they meant to me and how much we are a part of each other no matter where we are in the world. I am incredibly proud of both of them and they continue to impress me with their grace, fortitude and humor. Happy Birthday A&E! I am so grateful you came into my life and choose to remain there.
