The Sisters

Some people are just better than others. I mean this from the point of view of being kind, caring, considerate, compassionate — the type of people who genuinely wish the best for others and who are willing to extend their helping hands in meaningful ways.

Both Sue and Heather are such people. I am so fortunate to be married to Sue and to, therefore, also be Heather's brother-in-law. When they are together, the good times roll, and there is abundant giggling and laughter.

I have already posted of our meetup at Wheelers, where Heather and Brian were willing to make more than 2 hour hour drive just to treat Sue to a birthday brunch and celebrate her birthday. This is a photo that I took then.

I would also like to link you to a blog post that Heather wrote in honour of Sue: The Jewel I Know. It's really sweet.

Last but not least, I am linking you to Heather's entry in a short story competition held by The Australian Book Review. Her story Butterfly as Metaphor received a judges' commendation and is their featured story of the month. Beyond saying that it's both touching and brilliant, I can't describe it meaningfully. You just have to take the 15-20 minutes to love it. Heather writes differently, so stick with it beyond the first few paragraphs, and you'll be rewarded. Here's the link one more time.

When there is abundant giggling and laughter, the rest falls in place.

I loved that drawing she did of them both. So much joy and fun in that. I wouldn't mind having something like that on my wall!
