This last 10 months has been the longest we’ve gone without talking.
It’s been heartbreaking for me and though I’ve tried to talk to her at least half a dozen times, all to no avail, I’m not the kind who gives up easily.
Today I thought I’d give it another go, for no other reason than she’s my sister and I love her.
This time she actually responded.
And I feel like a weight has lifted off of my shoulders. Still, I didn’t let the silence go unmentioned.
Me: You know I’ve called you at least half a dozen times.
Her: I know. I’m a bitch, what can I say?
Me: Well, I say you come by it honestly but at least you’re willing to admit it which is way more than she (meaning our mother) would do.
Her: Yeah, that’s what I thought.
Me: I’ve really missed you.
Her: I’ve missed you too but I’m going to go before you get all sappy on me.
Me: Okay, fair enough. But we’re still friends, we’re good right?
Her: Of course. You’re my sister. I love you.
Me: I love you too.
And there you have it. Sister speak and sister love. Unmatched in the world of female relationships.
If you have a sister that is nearby, hug her and appreciate her for everything that she is…because I promise you’ll find no better friend.
