This weekend I watched my youngest sister unpack from her first year in the college dorms. I am proud of her for doing so well and working so hard all while being well rounded. My other sister recently graduated college and is making her way. She is changing before my eyes.
I look at my sisters and want to take away their hardships. I want them to have nothing but good. They have had enough hardships in her life. But the hard stuff, that is what makes us better, what makes us stronger. I know both of these to be true. How can your heart possibly balance this?
I am their older sister, always have, always will be. I can't even how a mother could balance all those feelings.
Way to go mom, I know we have all given you the best and worst moments in life. Way to go to all the moms who love as hard as they can love everyday. We love you too.
I got what I wanted this Mother's Day and I am not even a mother. I got to see my mom and talk and laugh with her. I got to give my dad the biggest hug. I got to see my sisters happy and healthy. I got to see my mother in law and all of her family who are going through some unthinkable circumstances and staying strong as a family.
This was a good weekend.
