"To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time." ~Clara Ortega
That's my husband Guy & his sister Sara.
Lately I have noticed something in their relationship I never saw before. They talk on the phone several times a week (Sara lives in Maine) often just to see how each other are doing. Since my MIL & FIL have both passed and they have to take care of business, they seem to have become closer. Maybe because they realize that all they have is each other, & we are all getting older & it's time to make amends, leaving the past behind (another post, another day). I envy their relationship & wish I had what they have with each other with my brother (my brother is mentally handicapped - so that will never be). I envy that he seems to be able to talk out things more with her than with me - hah - the other woman in our relationship (LOL). Whatever it is, it makes Guy happy so it makes me happy.
