Q. Who is not my younger sister, yet feels like an older sister?
(For Lent, I've decided to write 40 posts about people I love / made me who I am / thankful to know / appreciate)
For those scoring at home, this will be the third (of an eventual 5 straight) posts dedicated to the same nuclear family based in Prospect Heights. K is the oldest of the three kids.
Although she's a year younger than I, she's always been more mature. I remember helping move her into an campus apartment during college. She had place mats, candlestick holders, and even a napkin cozy. At the same time, I had built a nightstand entirely out of extra and unclaimed phone books.
I was touched and honored when she asked me to play a role in her wedding. Maybe I'll be able to return the gratitude.
