My sister and I are 6 1/2 years apart in age. When I was packing my bags to go off to college, she was getting ready to start middle school. We were never very close growing up. I was the preteen with overly maternal instincts and she was the youngest, the wild child, and the life of the party. After heading to college and spending more time away from each other, we slowly developed a special friendship, understanding, and love during my vacations and time home. Over the years, our sister souls have kindled a special type of connection that will only continue to grow and become strong. Watching her grow and become a woman is a special privilege. Today, I am thankful for my Kelsie.
