We Share A Passion For Laughing Together

Most of the time when I talk about books it's with my sister.  I'm six years older than her, so when we were kids she got on my nerves.  We fought a lot, but as adults she's my best friend.  We share a passion for reading and laughing together.  Very few people can make me laugh like she does.  Even fewer understand me like she does.  We went and walked at the park today then spent an hour and a half sitting at a picnic table talking about books, the world, religion, our kids, our family...our lives in general.  I love every moment I get to spend with her and it's like therapy for me.  I don't know if she understands how important she is in my life.

Our kids go to the same school, and she was behind me in line waiting to pick them up at the end of the day today.  She got out of her car and came and hopped in with me.  She immediately started telling me about her trip to the library today and the books she checked out.  I just kept lucky am I that my sister is my best friend and a book lover too!

I'm on the back and Beth's in the front. 
If you look closely at the kids you can see that they thought this was hilarious.
