Journaling: I am so thankful for the time we have had together the past 3 years. I am thankful that you are not just my sister, but my friend too. I am thankful for all the times you have pushed me to try something new (stamping, digiscrapping, etc) even though I am so resistant to change. I am thankful for the opportunity to spend time with your girls. I am thankful for all the deep discussions we have had. And all the stupid ones as well. I am thankful that you are the social opposite of me. I am thankful that you have the opportunity to go to China and live out your dream. I will miss you and your family more than can ever say, but I know in my heart that it is the right thing for you and your family. I pray that we are able to remain just as closeacross the miles.You are My Person.

Beautiful page... How wonderful to have a sister you are so close to.... It's hard having family far away. I'm in Mich and my daughter and family are in Calif and my son and wife are in Boston..... We cherish the time we have together..

This is so precious! I have been blessed with two wonderful sisters...one just two miles away...the other many miles away. But not China! I have been feeling your pain these past several months as the departure date has drawn closer.
I will be praying for you both, and your families in the days ahead.

I love this page! I love reading about the precious bond you and your sister share. I am sure this is a challenging time for your family. Think of it as now having a reason to visit China and thank God for the internet! I will keep your family in my prayers.
