I am thankful for lots of things, but today especially for my sister. She drove up to visit with me and my kids, and stayed through dinner. She got us out of the house, took us grocery shopping, and then lounged with us back at home. She saved me from several “freak out” moments with the kids, just by being there with her calming presence. My husband usually does that for me, but since he was out of town hunting (1st time ever!) it was no small miracle that she was here with me. We have been close throughout our lives, and while the circumstances of life sometimes keep us apart, we always manage to find our way back. We are sisters but even more so, we are friends. So today I thank God for her.
