My little sister means the world to me. She is 8 years younger than I am and has always been such a bright light in my life. We’ve always lived close to each other and have been very involved in each other’s life. She loves her nephews and plays with them the way only a young aunt can. I have always been so very close to her. I can remember rocking her to sleep each night when she was a little baby and then as a little girl. She has always been a fun outlet in my life and it’s a hole that will not easily be filled.
Ashley and her husband are on the road again today and it gives me a little comfort knowing that at least they have some yummy snacks to enjoy on the way! Ashley told me their first day of travel (Sunday) they didn’t even stop for breakfast or lunch because they had granola, energy bars, Starbucks – everything to keep them going! That’s what I like to hear!
