'Don't forget your sisters,' she advised, swirling the tea leaves to the bottom of her gass. 'They'll be more important as you get older. No matter how much you love your husband, no matter how much you love the children you may have, you are still going to need sisters. Remember to go places with them now and then; do things with them.'
|Debbie, me and Jamie|
|My sister Debbie...me...and my grandmother.|
|My sisters: Debbie and Jamie...my mother...and me|
THIS SAYS IT ALL...
Children grow up.
Jobs come and go.
Love waxes and wanes.
Men don't do what they're supposed to do.
Colleagues forget favors.
Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you.
A girl friend is never father away than needing her reach.
When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you have to walk it by yourself, the women in you life will be on the valley's rim, cheering you on, praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your behalf, and waiting with open arms at the valley's end.
Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk beside you...or come in and carry you out.
Girlfriends, daughters, granddaughters, daughters-in-law, sisters, sisters-in-law, Mothers, Grandmothers, aunties, nieces, cousins and extended family: all bless our life!
|Left to Right: Sister Jamie, Mother, Me and Sister Debbie|
Every day, we need each other still. Pass this on to all the women who help mak your life meaning full! I just did.
To all my sisters out there...remember, take care and...
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch Often!
