Last weekend Sister celebrated her birthday. She got to spend it at home. I’m sure it was a treat for her and for Grandpa and Grandma to babysit Miles while Sister delivered sheep.
“My best friend in the whole wide world ended up being the person who was with me all along: my sister. She’s seen me in the good, the bad, and the very very very ugly. I firmly believe sisters are built-in companions who are literally not allowed to desert you. It’s fantastic. You’re stuck with them for life! I’m thankful for this sticking.”
Sisters are the people in the world who know you the best. Who else do you trust to tell your secrets to? Sisters can’t tell them to anyone because we know too much about her. Who else shared the same experiences growing up? No matter what you experience in life sisters know you at your best and your worst, they accept, support and love you no matter what.
As youngsters the differences between Sister and I seemed impossible. By the time we were in High School we began to appreciate our unique personalities and sometimes take advantage of them. Today we hash out the good, the bad and the ugly issues in life and tell each other of our latest life experiences. Sister, the one person who understands us better than we sometimes understand ourselves.
Sister is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship. ~Margaret Mead
While at Church Saturday evening Father started his homily by saying that the fourth Sunday of Easter is known as Good Shepherd Sunday. I found that very fitting for the girl who loves sheep and tends her flock with her heart.
Daughter, sister, friend, wife and mother all hats that Sister wears beautifully. I Love You and am blessed to have you as my Sister and friend.
