My Sister Moving Away

Thanks to Olga Quinn

     I was really worried about my sister when she decided to move to Santa Barbara. Our whole family is in Florida, and she would be so far away. We were born only a year apart and have been close our whole lives. We even went to college in the same town and lived next door to each other. She has always been really easily influenced too, which worried me the most. I was scared she would meet someone who could see her weakness and take advantage of her. I was so relieved when she asked me to go out there with her for a few weeks and help her get organized.

     It made me feel much better knowing that I would be there for her if she needed anything. The first thing I did when we got to her new house was research Santa Barbara Home Security and persuade her to get an alarm system. I was surprised about how receptive she was to my suggestion, and we got that taken care of. I felt better leaving her there knowing that she felt safe. I am going to miss her a ton, but I know we will try to visit as often as possible and we’ll talk on the phone every day.


  1. I would have a sad day if my sis was moving away. My brother already lives in another state and 2 of my kids live in another state from that. I want everyone to live here on my little acre of the world! :) ♥

  2. Jo, I was never close to my sister. She is not apart of my life. I could surely see where if you are blessed to be close to your siblings you would want them close at all times! Thanks for stopping by to read and comment!
