“Clutter and mess show us that life is being lived...Tidiness makes me think of held breath, of suspended animation... Perfectionism is a mean, frozen form of idealism, while messes are the artist's true friend. What people somehow forgot to mention when we were children was that we need to make messes in order to find out who we are and why we are here.”

~Anne Lamott

Shelly your little bunch of wildlings reminded me how precious, and important, it is to be so.

A sister is honest proof that you can catch laughter.

A sister can cuddle you and push you away and take your stuff. Simultaneously.

A sister will tell you what you should have said, and which pants would look better with that top, and that your hair looks a bit funny and what on earth has happened to your eyebrows?

A sister knows that that kid from school is an idiot anyway, and which things cannot be laughed at, and where the chocolate biscuits are hidden in the cupboard, should you (both) need them one bruisy afternoon.

A sister is your first friend and your worst friend and the best friend you may ever have, if you let her in and leave her to be herself and trust her with your heart.

Like this (and it helps to have incredible parents):
