52 Blessings - Week 7

(My weeks of blessings in no particular order.)

This week I'd like to show my gratitude for my sweet Sister-in-Law, Heather (Ben's younger sister)! We moved back to Arizona just over 2 years ago (still can't believe it's been that long already) to be closer to family. Ben and I have been married almost 12 years (in March) and Heather and I have been friends since we met, but it's just in the last 2 years that we've gotten a LOT closer! I have grown to love her even more than I already did.
She is so nice, thoughtful, genuine, caring, funny, beautiful, giving, creative, and a wonderful wife & mother. Our sons are like best friends/cousins. She's also a really good cook and loves trying new recipes. Luckily, she shares her recipes with me. We just had a blast playing Karaoke American Idol yesterday for probably about 3 hours straight, singing duets together the whole time until our voices gave out. And we totally ROCKED!!! I really enjoy her company and just hanging out together!

I am so sad that she's moving out of state on Tuesday! We are still going to call each other and email as often as we can. I feel so BLESSED to have her as one of my Sisters! She is such a great friend to me. Thank you for all you do, Heather! I LOVE you TONS and we're going to MISS all of you a LOT!!! Good Luck with your move! Hope you get there safely and everything goes well for your family! You deserve the BEST!!

It is always hard when someone close has to move away. You are so lucky to have such a great relationship with your sister in law. I love Shawn's sister, but we don't hang out.

Atleast now you have an excuse to go on a vacation!

So sad that she's moving, but it's great that you've had these 2 years to grow closer and become really good friends! That won't ever go away.

My SIL and I have been friends since I moved here 2 1/2 years ago and she and her DH are moving this summer. Your post reminds me how blessed I am to have her as a friend. Thanks for the reminder.
