For the love of a sister

I'll admit it, I'm a little needy at times.
I'm a sucker for a nice compliment.
I do know my own worth, but I will
acknowledge that I at times thrive
off the validation of my worth from
those whom I love.

Heck, I don't know... And I'm sure there
is some one out there who would be good at
analyzing my psyche. However, Now isn't the time.
I just wanna tell my story. (feel free to contact me later*wink*)

So, my 22 yr old sister sends me a text:
2:53 pm
"Hey do you know how to make zucchini bread?"
MY reply
"I have a recipe for it at home, but I don't know it right off. I can send it to you"
Her reply 3:02 pm
"Can you just make it for me:-)"
MY reply
"lol, maybe"
Her reply
"Come on you know you want to! Flex those Black Martha Stewart skills"

INTERJECTION, inside info- I heart Martha Stewart, she is so creatively awesome. I secretly want to be her.

My reply (trying to play it tough & cool)
"Maybe. Don't try to hype me up...hehehe"

The result?
You know it. I was in the store gathering the ingredients.
I had been caught in the web! And I knew it. I was gettin' played.
But for the love of a sister, I was going along for the ride and I liked it.

As I began preparing, mixing up the ingredients for this lovely loaf,
which I so knowingly was suckered into, I added something extra.
One cup of hugs, a half a cup of kisses and a splash of sisterly hopes and dreams.

This is the result:

The follow up text:

3:02 pm
"Are you home today?"
Her reply
"No, @ work"
My reply
"All day?...awww too bad. Guess u wont be able to eat your ZUCCHINI BREAD."
Her reply
"Did you add walnuts?"
My reply
" I did"
Her Reply
"OMG! Your the best"
My reply (trying to be cool and tough)
"yeah yeah, that's what you say to all the sisters. I'm just a sucka for flattery"
All the while, I'm smiling from ear to ear. Because even if only for a moment due to my culinary skills...I enjoyed feeling needed and appreciated.

  1. I know where you're coming from. I have 2 sisters and I am the youngest. So when an opportunity arises where I'm actually needed I bask in the appreciation for days! Here's to sisters! :)


  2. What a sweet sister you are! Yum!
