This last Monday I quite possibly had the most fun I've had at work. All because of these two. My sister and my mom. I don't know what it was but we were all in such a goofy mood, Stacey and I teaming up against Mom with our signature smart ass comments, Mom giving the look that consists of a tilted head and a smirk on her face. We almost always say that we got our witty and sarcastic characteristics from Dad, but I think we got some from Mom too. She's just a little more ladylike about it.
Years ago I never would have thought that I would have the relationship that I do with my mom or my sister. Mom and I had some rough, I would like to say patches but to be honest I would have to say years, while I was in high school. Two stubborn women that could never agree on anything or simple disagree just so we weren't agreeing. It sounds exhausting and it was. Stacey and I have been close for quite some time but believe me, it didn't start out that way. I was the pesky sister that only wanted to be like my big sis. I drove her crazy! In turn she didn't really want to hang out with me much.
I was a little scared at first that we were all going to be working together. Would the old problems Mom and I had resurface? Would Stacey and I get to the point of wanting to knock each other out? Much to my relief, it's been nothing short of great. Sure there have been moments that might not have gone smoothly and yes, there have been arguements, but we always manage to work through them and get right back to our goofy selves.
I feel like the three of us have been through so much together and that our relationship is always growing. I feel so lucky to have these two women in my life.
