Some words on sisterhood

Having a sister is one of the most amazing things in the world. I lucked out in the sibling lottery. My little sister Margaret (although I NEVER call her that and instead use one of about a million nicknames I have for her) is my bestest friend in the whole world. We have a special connection that I don't share with anybody else. When our older sister Michelle passed away almost 9 years ago we became even closer. Sharing the loss of one sister made us that much more important to each other. The masterpiece below was penned by Margaret. She was able to write beautifully about our relationship. I am in absolute awe of her way with words. I know I'm a tad biased but I don't think a more talented poet has ever walked the earth. Just sayin'.

Speaking of stringing words together in a neat-o way, I have already completed (sort of) one of my 4 resolutions. I signed up for this writing class. Yay me.
