On Friday, WordPress published their Weekly Photo Challenge: Close. The photos for the week should reflect proximity between people, places, or things.
I’ve had a hectic week, and this is the first chance I’ve had to sit and think about photo reflections of something close. Right now, my mind goes to emotional, not physical closeness. I am blessed with a wonderful husband (my closest daily tie) and family. I feel close to all of my children and grandchildren as well. We enjoy extended family and friends who also enrich our lives in varying and ever-evolving levels of closeness.
But there is one bond that is especially precious to me right now. As my mom is struggling with health issues, my sister and I are drawn tightly together. This is sort of a “rubber band” relationship. We’ve always loved and doted on one another (and one another’s children.) Sometimes we’ve lived on opposite coasts, or been in very different places in our lives, but that bond is always there, pulling us back together, no matter how circumstances have stretched it.
So here’s a loving shout-out to my incredible baby sister (who hates to be called that, but what the heck – age has its privileges!)
