Today, I was a bit moody. I wasn’t sure wether to write or not, but of course as soon as you sit next to your laptop, that feeling just comes. My sister left after staying with me and my husband for a while. I din’t get enough time with her though. It would have been the same, maybe even I was still back at home. We are both grown up and different.

Nowadays, we are in such a disconnected and distracted world. There’s a lot going on and we have to really work hard in every relationship. Emotional – is the key to any long term connection. We grew up together, but when we became teenagers, we got separated by attending different schools. However, we still know each other as grown women and it’s amazing. We do lots of video calls and all, but sometimes I just want her close.
With my first daughter, she wasn’t around, but she used to call her daily and badly wanted to be around to see her niece’s first steps and all. She was really there for me when my daughter passed. She was a companion and more like a mother figure than anything else.
On the other hand, small sisters are always irritating in a way. I remember how she used to hide her clothes. I would always wear hers, I don’t know why, but I always thought hers were better than mine. Kind of how boyfriend/husband food is always nicer. She would hide her clothes when she went off to boarding school and I was like: “I have a few months to search the whole house”. Oh damn, I was so determined; I would always find them.
One day she came back home earlier than anticipated. I was wearing her boots and her skirt, the whole outfit was hers. She said: “how can you go out with oversized shoes”. She was more concerned about how I would look than me being in her closet. She has always been selfless.
