Sister is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship. Margaret Mead
Michael Braun in Through the Fire didn’t have a sister. She had a wonderful brother. Daniel had his twin, David.
The FBI Trilogy tells the story of three sisters. I know about sisters as I have one of the best in the world.
Margaret Mead had it correct. My sister is older and when we were growing up, she was the BOSS when my parents were not home. Even though we are several years past our teenage years, she sometimes thinks she’s still the BOSS…and that’s O.K.
We weren’t close for many years, having gone our separate ways. It took an almost-tragedy to allow us to both understand how important we were to each other. Someone asked me if having a heart attack and heart surgery was the worst thing to happen to me. I told them no, it was a blessing. It was the event that showed me how wonderful and loving my sister is.
Even though we live far away from each other; she is my support and my sounding board for life.
We text many times every day. She is the only person I can understand on facetime, so she is the only person I ever speak to directly on the phone. Everyone else is a text or an interpreted phone call.
We take trips together, leaving our husbands to fend for themselves. So far they have managed to survive.
I haven’t written the dedication to the trilogy, but when I do. One will say:
To my dearest sister, Vicki. Before we had our wonderful husbands to
bolster us and love us; before we had our children to fill our hearts,
we had each other. There is no one who fills my life with so much.
Thank you for being my sister! Thank you for being my friend.
Thank you for your time and as always “Keep Reading!”
