You see, about four years ago I had twins. And from then on I was in survival mode. The dishes were rarely clean, the laundry was never done. (In fact, I was finally washing swimming suits from the summer in December.) I was still having to work from home, and I just felt like I had no time for anything.
And then my sister moved in, about 9 months ago. And my life changed. Suddenly, I had time for a break occasionally, Eldon and I were getting a night out more often, the dishes were done more often than not, and she even got caught up on my laundry! (I'm really sorry, I know you're jealous.)
But really, more than that is how she has helped me be a better person. She helps me see myself in a different way, and for the first time in a while, I feel like I can make some real changes, instead of just surviving until the next time my head can crash on my pillow.
Now, I just don't know how I'd ever survive if she left.
And even more importantly....how will I ever pay her back for all she's done.
I love you, my sister. More than you will ever know.
