Last night I had a chat with My wee sister. It was surreal in some ways, as we chatted I realised how much I loved and appreciated her. Then I thought about how infrequently I had told her that. As I did, I started to tear up, I know how butch and masculine! It was something I had to say, something I needed her to know. I have to say I felt great joy at telling her how much she meant to me and how much I was grateful for her support over the years. I was vulnerable I guess as I said what needed to be said. I wonder what about you? Is there someone in your life that needs to hear it just once. Oh I know the male bravado, if you are male, tells us we know they know, we don't have to say anything. But I truly believe I needed to say those things to her and the exchange that followed was truly special, a moment we shared. Maybe it will be the last time I get to tell her what I truly think of her, I hope not as there is much I still want to achieve, but what if it was? I didn't do it for Me I did it for her. Is my sister perfect, no, but I must say that to me she is very close to that, she has exemplified selfless love. Anyway before I start rambling, TOO LATE!, who do you need to take time to remind that you appreciate? I think that apart from the effect of building them up you will find yourself built up in the process. By The Way - she said to me as if it was just a matter of fact, "It's what sisters do." Maybe you will hear its what partners or friends do. Yes it is, well from true siblings, partners and friends but lets not take it for granted.
