Today, Baby Sister celebrates seven years clean. I found this image online today, and it made me think about what an amazing journey my sister and I have been on, both individually and together.
During her formative teenage years, I was a really bad role model for my sister. No doubt about it. I am grateful that I found recovery in the late 1980s, and I like to think that I became a better role model for her when she finally sought recovery for herself around a decade ago.
I am so proud of Baby Sister, and her recovery. Once again, I finally have the sister that I have always wanted. What I know with absolute certainty, is that I love her immensely. Always have. Always will. I know how rare it is for siblings to find themselves in recovery together. We really have been truly blessed with...amazing grace.
This one's for you, Baby Sister.
