More than that

My big sister could not be with me in college... She was only with me my first semester, and then she graduated. I was left alone, something I was not used to. I had grown quite accustomed to leaning upon my big sister. Then she stepped big sister's best friend. And she was there. I am sure she has no idea how much her words of kindness and encouragement meant to me. But she was there and that was all that I needed. She was simply my big sister's best friend but over the past two years in college, she has become more than that to me...she has become my confident, my companion and my friend too.
Last Friday Liz got married. I never cry in weddings, but this one I did. I could not help but have tears come to my eyes when I saw my big sister's best friend, my friend, walking down the aisle. She looked absolutely radiant; she seemed to have a glow about her.
My big sister has an amazing best friend, and I am so lucky and proud to call her my friend too.


  1. What a beautiful woman she is; both inside and out...

  2. Beautiful picture. Congrats, Liz! I'm sure you're going to miss her. But time and distance should never separate real friends!
