Reach out to your sister and tell her. I recently found out my sister's son had walking pneumonia for 5 days and was hospitalized but no one called me since we live 2,000 miles away. I was hurt but she just felt it would burden me.

She's always been the one to reach out to me and pull me up and out of situations so I've always been "spoiled" by that part of our relationship. Told myself it's time to grow up and reach out to her. I shower her with emails, card (the ones you mail) and calls just to say "hello". Who really gets cards or letters anymore--unless its Christmas???

Hope I've helped emoticon

I have two sisters. One older and one younger. We are all busy but we just try a little harder to communicate. Call, email,even send a card saying how much you miss her. Do not give up but also give her space if she needs it.
Also,my sisters and I are all 40 or over. emoticon

I'm just guessing here, but does your sister maybe have something going on in her life that's making her less communicative with everyone? I wouldn't assume that you're growing apart. I know that with my siblings I'm the one who calls everyone the least. Sometimes I'm busy, sometimes I'm ill, but they always understand. When we do talk we always have nice conversations like we just spoke a day ago. Talk to her; try not to read too much into it before you do. Maybe she needs someone to reach out to her.

While my sister and I have always lived many miles apart, we used to talk about every two weeks. Lately however, if we talk, it's when I call. She rarey calls and I don't know if I should accept this as normal growing apart as we get older or if something else is going on. The funny thing is that my brother and I talk much more now even tho we also live many miles apart. Has anyone experienced this with their siblings also? I am 46, my sister 48. The last 5 years, we did a sisters vacation together. But this year it didn't happen. I could sure use some help!!!
