Another Trip Around the Sun

Thirty one years ago I entered one of the most important relationships of my life. A relationship that has had good times, bad issues, laughter, tears, loving support and tough love. A relationship that I treasure and a person I am grateful for everyday.

Today I am wishing my Sister a Happy Birthday! I wondered what I would write to her or about her and decided to share a few quotes that make me think about our relationship.

Mick began her cattle showing career long before she lead a calf in the ring.

Sister is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship. ~Margaret Mead

For there is no friend like a sister in calm or stormy weather; To cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen whilst one stands. ~Christina Rossetti

My sister travels with me, and she’s the person who keeps me in line, whether I like it or not. I trust her and also have a good, healthy fear of her. ~Katy Perry

    Very nice tribute!

  10. I always wanted a sister! Not that I don’t love my little brother…. he was a blast to play with growing up. When I hit my early twenties, I craved having a sister to to spend time with.

    Then, I married my husband and acquired just that! Unfortunately, she lives in Kansas, though. We still stay in touch and look forward to visit!

    You are very lucky, which I am sure you know. 🙂

  11. Sure enjoyed these pictures & thoughts, Robyn!
    I got to see them on G+.. but appreciate them all the more here now that I had time to read the added text & sentiment.
    (I sprained my ankle yesterday pretty bad.. it’s giving me a little time to put my feet up & catch up on reading. Not the way I’d like to acquire that time, but not much I can do about it now!)
    I have two sisters, 3 and 4.5 years older. Sisterhood is a relationship like no other!
