Jill was really upset that she couldn't really afford to buy me gifts this year. No matter how many times I told her that mattered little to me it didn't make a difference. I finally told her, "The only thing I want from you this year is a letter."
Me: "Just write me a damn letter, professing your undying love and I'll be happy!"
I thought she'd forgotten about it.
On Christmas Eve she gave me this.
Okay, yeah, the print is so frickin' small I can barely read it so there's no way you can. So, I shall type it out for you.
You are beautiful and an amazing woman.
You are giving and always express your love.
You are loyal, someone I can always count on.
You're always the first to try and pick me up after I have fallen.
You wipe my tears away and allow me to cry on your shoulder.
You have taught me to keep going even after I have made the wrong turn.
You make me smile even when I feel nothing but pain.
You make me feel strong when I feel no strength.
When I am lonely you are always there to speak.
You show no judgment and you accept me for the person I am.
I am blessed to have a sister like you,
bur more blessed because I have been given a forever best friend!
I love you Justine!
(It was easy to say)
So yeah, Jill gave me just about the best present in the whole world this Christmas. Her love, pure and true. I sat on the couch, amidst the chaos of the kids and adults opening presents, and as I read, my lips started to tremble, my nose started to run and I had trouble even saying thank you. Everyone was like, "Read it to us! Read it to us!" and I was all, "Errr... I can't! Someone else will have to read it to you."
Thank you so much, Sis. I love you so much. (and it was even easier for me to say! HA!)
Now that we've all had a good sob, let's see the other side of sisterly love. The side that makes you hiss with pissed-off-ness and just want to kill your sibling. Spit at them and possibly claw their eyes out. If you actually had claws.
Yeah, I think I'll stick with my kind of sisterly love.
Pssst! If you love me, you might love my
