17 years ago at this time, I came to Germany for the second time in my adult life and it’s quite safe to say, I am here for good. Well, I never say never, but things are looking like I might be staying here! In those years I’ve seen my sister on and off a few times (we were lucky when her husband was stationed here in Germany and we could visit whenever we wanted to hop in the car). Now things are different. Last year I visited my sister after not having seen her in 11 years! Not many things compare to when we hugged for the first time again in so many years!
It’s hard to imagine sometimes. We are so thankful for many things we have to keep in touch nowadays like internet, and telephoning is cheaper now. We still may not be able to visit each other every year, but at least we can keep in touch easier. Here’s an ode to sisterly love and those that have come before us… because my aunt and mom have gone through the same thing so many years ago and the love between them will never fade!
