My sister-friend(s) - NaBloPoMo 8

The prompt for Day 8 asks whether I have a friend who is practically a brother or sister to me...it's been rolling around in my head for a full 24 hours now and I'm not sure how to answer.

Looking at the question backwards, I am lucky enough to have a sister who is a best friend to me.  That is such a gift.

I always wanted a big family - many siblings and cousins all around and in my business.  I have 2 siblings and a total of 8 cousins.  But thanks to Facebook and one side of my family's commitment to regular family reunions over the past 20 years, I have really improved my extended family connections and I love it.

I have also collected friends over the years that I would also have loved to call my family.  Some of whom remain in my life to this day, and some who didn't feel the connection to me that I felt to them.  Unfortunately, none of them are geographically close to me, but when we are able to be together, it is so happy and warm and comfortable.

  1. As I just posted on your earlier (or later?) piece, my siblings are my best friends. Yup, I had that big family where we were all around and in each other's business growing up. As adults there is a TON of mutual admiration and respect. We are NOT all alike. Each has their own area of weakness and strength but we are a unit too. Lovely.

  2. Is that you, JT? Isn't it fun hanging out at Sarah's for a few minutes? Do you like her new font? I do, and I like this post about sisters as best friends. Works for me.
