It has been over 5 years now since my youngest sister worked as a commercial real estate lawyer raleigh nc and I know that she really misses the career that she worked so hard at for so long. She made some pretty darned good money there for a while and made a boat load of connections that she has been trying so hard to keep and maintain ever since leaving North Carolina back in 2007 for reasons that I won’t go into right here and now.
I guess the reason I felt compelled to write about this is that the holidays are getting closer and closer and I tend to get all mushy and sentimental thinking about my family and all the things that we have all each had to go through in our lives. None of us could have ever imagined how things have worked out back when we were all kids, living at home, going to school and living the life that we had no idea how good it really was. My mother used to say that it is too bad that youth is wasted on the young and every year around this time I look back and see how very true that old saying is.
