Last night I had one of the scariest nights of my life... Kara called me in a hysterical panic saying that Kimber had been in a car accident. Without getting into too much detail she knew she had been in an accident close to her house, she didn't know where and she didn't know how bad but she knew the ambulance was on the way. Luckily I live just around the block so she came and picked me up and we went looking for the ambulance. She turned out to have only minor injuries but for that 5 minutes I had a million thoughts go through my head.. what if she isn't ok? How would I ever live without Kimber? Have I told her how awesome she is enough? Anyway it's moments like that, as scary as it was, that I think we all need to reprioritize and not take the important things.. and people for granted. As Kara and I sat on Kimber's bed in the emergency room I looked at them both and really truly felt so much gratitude for them both. I know a lot of people grow up hating their siblings but it was never like that.
Growing up Kara and I were really close. We always went to each other for advice and we knew everything about each other. My mom and dad always say that all they would hear every night at bedtime was giggling from our room mostly on my end because she was always making me laugh. She is the most caring person I know. She is so crazy off the wall and has so much energy and motivation.
As we got older all of a sudden Kimber wasn't the little baby sister anymore (she is 7 years younger than me.) Anyway, Kimber and I have become so close. Our personalities and desires are so similar and we see each other almost every day. I love how she always asks for advice from me and I really believe that she really values my opinions. She is the youngest but she is the best example to me. She lives so righteously and bases all of her decisions on the spirit. Anyway I love my sisters! I LOVE MY SISTERS!!!! They are both so funny and witty and spontaneous. They have such fun, dramatic, glamorous lives that I love to live vicariously through and we have so much fun together.
As we were driving home from the hospital we started talking about how lucky we are to have each other... I can't imagine my life without either of them. They are so important to me and this really reminded me of that.It also made me think about how extremely lucky these two little sweeties are to have each other...
