Sisters. They come in all shapes and sizes. Some are short, tall, fat, skinny, introverts, extroverts. Sisters squabble and fuss, giggle and share things--sometimes even secrets.
Sisters know the family history. She knows YOUR history--and she loves you anyway. She shares in your frustrations and many time causes them! But in the end, you don't care, because you're sisters.
I have an older sister. Time and distance have kept our relationship at arm's length, but I if I was in trouble, I know she would be here for me in a heartbeat. And I'd be there for her.
Sometimes we have "sisters" who aren't necessarily blood-related, but they're just as special to us. Maybe if you don't have a close blood sister, you are blessed with a friend who is like a sister. Both are blessings and never to be taken for granted.
So my blog today is to remind you, if there's a "sister" in your life who needs to hear from you today, call her. Send her a note. Remind her that you're there for her and you love her. You'll be glad you did. And who knows, maybe you'll be calling her at just the right time, right when she needed to hear from you. But then that's no surprise. It's what sisters do, right?
One more thing. Maybe you want to share why your sister--blood-related or not--is special to you.
