I was not given a sister as a sibling in this life, yet I have still been blessed with many of them.  Once upon a time as a child, for whatever reason, I did not trust my fellow female species. Some of my sisters broke down that barrier for me.  Others told me the truth whatever the circumstance.  Some allowed me a filter so wide that I wonder if there was anything I could say aloud that would turn them away from me.  Others made everyday life enjoyable and interesting. Some of them have literally wiped my tears. One begged to deliver my baby. One delivered her baby on my birthday. All of them have shown me love and devotion that I cannot express with words, nor that I will ever forget.

So, this is dedicated to my sisters, old and new:  Alyssa, Christy, Claire, Colleen, Courtney, Dana, Denise, Jama, Jennifer, Lauren, Mindy, Nicole, Pati, Patty, Rachel, Samara, Sheri, Stephanie, Susanne, and Trisha. You all have been my most favorite surprise so far on this life journey.   So, from my favorite musical, musical show and song…a gift to my favorites…..I love you, may there be never be a question in that…..ever. Because, I am changed for good.

For Good

I’m limited:
Just look at me – I’m limited
And just look at you –
You can do all I couldn’t do, Glinda
So now it’s up to you
For both of us
Now it’s up to you:
I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you:
Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good
It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You’ll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend:
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you:
Because I knew you:
I have been changed for good
And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I’ve done you blame me for
But then, I guess we know
There’s blame to share
And none of it seems to matter anymore
Like a comet pulled Like a ship blown
From orbit as it Off it’s mooring
Passes a sun, like By a wind off the
A stream that meets Sea, like a seed
A boulder, half-way Dropped by a
Through the wood Bird in the wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
I do believe I have been changed for the better?
And because I knew you:
Because I knew you:
Because I knew you:
I have been changed for good.

    Oh wow, you did it again. As I sit here with a cheerful tear, I laud our friendship and thank you for your sacred ease. I don’t know if I’ll ever become a fan of Glee, but I am still dying to see Wicked – field trip? I love you, mi amiga:)
