Life reminders

To my sister…

You are the one I have looked up to from knee high to now.

You are the one who showed me the monkey bars on the playground.

You are the one who wouldn’t let me out of the room when you were mad,

     but You were the first to make me laugh and tell me it’s okay.

You are the one I jumped off the couch with in Wonder Woman Underoos.

You are the one whose hands I held to cross the street for dance lessons.

You are the one I played dress-up with during summers at Tee’s house.

You are the one I made ginormous breakfasts with for our brother to eat. (and he did)

You are the one I shared a room, closet and clothes with.

You are the one who taught me how to shave.

You are the one who showed me how make-up goes on.

You are the one I watched in awe as a cheerleader.

You are the one I couldn’t wait to move out of the house for college,

     but You were the one I missed so deeply when you weren’t there.

You are the one I journeyed to different corners of the country with in search of the perfect college.

You are the one I picked up after having her wisdom teeth out and wanted to roller blade.

You are the one I love to laugh and be completely ridiculous with.

You are the one I joke with and ask, “Is it on straight?”

You are the one I long to talk to when I feel no one else understands.

You are the one who has beautiful handwriting and cooks delicious meals,

      and You are the one who goes so far out of her way to make us feel at home.

You are the best sister.

I love You to the moon and back,

     and You are the one I wish was here with me for this weekend.

so You are the one I dedicate my final yoga practice to on this closing training session.

You are the one who will be in my thoughts, in my heart, and in my soul.

You are my sister,

 but You will forever by my friend.

Namaste.

(now get your ass on a plane and come see me!)
