I miss Twin. It's been 16 months since I've seen Twin. We video chat (not often enough) and text and/or talk daily. But like I've tried to explain to my children, it is NOT the same thing as being able to hug and touch my very best friend in the entire world since birth. Literally. I popped out of the womb 12 minutes AFTER her (I like to write "before" her instead of "after" so I can pretend to be 1st). And since than (33 years, 3 months and 21 hours ago) we have never gone longer than 3 months without seeing each other. Until she temporarily relocated to the far-away country she's in right now. And it will be a little less than two years until she gets to move back to the same country as me again. And I don't know when I get to see her again. Probably not until next summer. In other words "too long." I've tried to sneak my way into our parents luggage for the flight. But they insist on wanting room for their stuff too. Hmph. I can't be All About Me though. All of us girls love our parents dearly. And this will be a fabulous visit for all of them. We have to have our Mommy & Daddy fixes. And we are blessed. No matter where we've lived, they've pinched pennies & rearranged schedules to come visit.
Love you Twin. Miss you. Snuggling in the blankie you made me.
