Today is my sister's 29th birthday (yep, as in her LAST twenty-something birthday.). Becky is one of my absolute favorite people... I may have two triplet brothers, but my big sis is my emotional twin. We pretty much have the same opinions and emotional responses to pretty much everything. Who knows where I would be now if she hadn't sat on the phone with me and listened to me cry and worry and "what if" days before my wedding when I was in a total panic. She'd been through the same thing leading up to her wedding and she understood my every fear. (Don't worry husbands, it was just pre-wedding jitters-- we love you very much!) We can make each other cry simply by talking about hypothetical sad situations...who does that? We do.
And lest you think all we do is cry, we do laugh a lot! Becky and I can crack ourselves up simply by remembering the awkward look on Randy's face when he walked in as I was aloe-ing up my very sunburned sister on a cruise a few years ago. Or the ridiculous trip, me, Becky, and Mom took trying to get out of that stupid parking garage after hours and we joyfully walked out of the garage...to find ourselves in the back alley of a CVS...where a semi was being unloaded by some very large men.
