A Soulmate for Life


Today is my younger sister’s birthday.  I was thinking about the times we’ve shared—laughing, crying, arguing, dreaming—times I wouldn’t trade for anything.  I wanted to try and put into words how lucky I feel to have been blessed with her in my life, but I realized I can’t really do it justice, so I’ll cheat just a little bit and use someone else’s words.  Today, enjoy a few quotes on sisterhood . . .

“The best thing about having a sister is I always have a friend.” ~Unknown

“What's the good of news if you haven't a sister to share it?” ~Jenny DeVries

“To have a loving relationship with a sister is not simply to have a buddy or a confident -- it is to have a soulmate for life.”  ~Victoria Secunda

“A sister is a gift from God, sent from above to make life worthwhile here below.”  ~Unknown

“A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.” ~Marion C Garretty


And, some pictures of my sister (and me, sometimes):

What’d I tell you?  Lots of good times.  Tonight, we’ll go to dinner to make a few more memories, and I’ll remember again how blessed I am.

So, happy birthday to my sister, Tanya.  I love you.
