Little story I wanted to share. I’ve never been close to one of my siblings and haven’t put effort to change that. Eg., never initiated conversations. In the past few years I’ve felt convicted to try to be more loving. I didn’t feel I liked her, but recognized my responsibility by being cold, even though it was subconscious and not quite intentional. So anyway, I’ve been trying, with much prayer. Recently she reached out asking me for something major and I started to feel bitter. *Continued

Since she mostly only reaches out when she needs something. But because of the commitment I made to try, and because what she wanted was important (for her son) but out of reach, I begrudgingly complied. Well, today I was able to get everything she wanted for free! It was pure coincidence and extremely unlikely but it worked out. And I think this is God taking care of me and my relationship with her. I’m so grateful! Tearing up as I type this! 🥲
