Together at Last

Have you ever been so happy that you just wanted to scream and fly?
I waited five years for this day to come. My sister is finally coming to the U.S. For years I dreamed of having my big sister back in my life. I dreamed of her being here for my birthday. I dreamed of her in my arms. I don’t know how these years passed by me. I don’t know how many nights and days I prayed to God to bring her to me. Having older siblings is a great gift. I don’t know how to thank God. I don’t know what to do. I am excited, nervous; just…I can’t believe it. And the funny thing is that I knew it all along. I knew this day would come. I knew there’d be a day when I’d be hugging my sister again. So many years passed and I didn’t get to have her give me advice. For years we said our birthday wishes on the phone. For years I kept thinking ‘God, when are you going to let me see her?’ When I went back to Iran two years ago, my sister and I both cried in the airport. That was the last time we saw each other. It’s been hard. Many hard years have passed, but we are finally going to be together.
