Tragic Irony

When I was a kid, and living at home, I fought with my siblings all the time. I mean all the time. Peaceful, loving encounters were few and far between (or maybe this is just how I remember it...) and I didn't really want anything to do with my family.

But now...
Now that I'm older, now that I'm wiser, now that I don't live near my siblings, I would give anything to be able to spend every day with them again. I miss them so much and yearn to see them more often.

The grass is always greener... :\

Isnt that crazy how that works out? I was and am the same way. And your family seem to be so fun it's no wonder you would come to your senses at some point :)
Thanks for the nice comment- is that the type of picture you were talking about on facebook?

I totally know what you mean Ali, my sister and I were not good friend until she was about to get married and now we talk just about everyday and we like to plan our vacations together so we can see eachother. It's good that you can appreciate it now :)

I so feel you on this... completely. I would literally kill small animals to be with my sisters and brother all the time. I tried bribing my sister to move in with us even :). Hugs to you, Ali! I miss you and your funness!
