Friendship & salads
Hey everyone, look, a salad. it just isn’t any salad, my sister made this salad. So what is the big deal, well let me tell you. When my sister was here visiting (from away) she had a bite with us, where my husband had made one of his super delicious salads. She liked it so much, that she savoured that experience till she got back to CA, and then made one up for herself.
Hers is different, it is her own taste buds that went to work to create the vision you see above. No two people will create the same masterpiece. Like friendships, we are all unique in what we bring to the relationship. I love my sister, she is my sister, however, when we were out one day on an excursion, we met a lovely lady in a Tim Horton’s.. neither of us knew her, but we sat with her and enjoyed the visit.
At one point in the conversation, my sister said, “we (she and I) were getting know each other”…. ding, it registered with me.. WOW it was true. just because we are sisters, doesn’t mean that we really know each other, we lives miles apart, and see each other only so many times a year. Our daily lives and our “habits” or the way we go about our lives, is really unknown to the other.
Her making this salad and sharing the picture with me, brought home, how special she is, and how much I do love her, as not just my sister but a friend. One that I hope to get to know better over the years to come.
