Girls Write Out
Wednesday, October 07, 2009
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.

My sister once said, "If Mom dies, I'll still have you to tell me all the things I need to know." That was startling, but after I thought about it, I understood what she meant. Sisters carry around details about the family, and no-one, except your mother, knows that stuff. I can't imagine life without my sister, and I'm sad my daughter won't have one to fight with, laugh with, travel with and share the memories.

So true, Farmer's Wife. My daughter doesn't have a sister, either. But she's pretty close to her brother and sister-in-law. :-)

Where is everybody? Does NO ONE like their sister?????

"Sister" - what a magical word. I am one of three - the middle one. I love both my sisters very much & can't imagine life without them. They are both unique in their own special ways and helped shape me into the woman I am today. Miles may separate us, but we care the memories of shared lives with us every day, and it is those memories that help me when I can't be with them in person.

Instead of responding, I sent a Facebook message to my sister. At first I was just going to post on her page, but then I realized my other siblings would also be able to see it and I didn't want them to feel unloved. Even though we are several years apart in age (I am older), we are great friends. I can't imagine my life without her.

Thanks for sharing, Kameko and Barb. There's nothing like family.

So glad you took the time to write to your sister today, Barb! I called mine. :-)

I just found out I have 5 sisters! Yep. I've been FOUND!!! I'm flying out to Seattle at the end of the month to meet them. I can't wait! We've talked on the phone and emailed, but I want to hug!

Funny thing is, even though I've never seen them face-to-face yet, we connected right away. Genes play a bigger role than I realized. :) And one of my sisters looks like my twin. She's nearly 8 years younger than me, so it couldn't be. :D

But after never having had a sister and longing for one, I feel completed now. :)

Ane, that is just SO COOL!!! I can't wait to hear about your time together with your sisters!!! What a life-changing experience!

Take lots of pictures! :-)

Ane, that is SO COOL! Make sure you let us know how it goes!

I always wanted a sister but I have three brothers who mean the world to me. One is in heaven already but I'll see him again. The other two are very close to me. My sister in law Mary is the sister I never had. I'm so glad she's part of our family! The Lord has given me friends that are as close as sisters too. My buds here on GWO are those sisters I never had. My life has been so blessed by you girls!
