I have 4 brothers and all my life I have wondered what it would be like to have a sister? I see other sisters share things that you don't quite share with a brother. I feel like in some ways since I have married and had girls of my own, that I sorta got part of that experience. My girls as well as my boys feel like my friends, but sometimes the things that just we girls share, has been neat. I know if you were to ask Jeff or my boys to participate in some of our conversations or activities...they would quickly so NO!
I also have had that type of feeling with so many of my dear friends, I have a lot of BEST FRIENDS! They truly are my best friend too! As far as I know, there isn't a limit to how many you can have. Also my sister-in-law and now my daughter-in-law, seem more like sisters at certain times in my life and for that I am grateful too.
Today Lee and I spent more time with these two sisters, my granddaughters. Angie is only 3 and we weren't sure how she would adjust to someone sharing her lime light, but so far she has done well. She may have a few struggles because of Jenny, but she doesn't show them too Jenny and for that we are grateful.
I loved seeing my kids interact with each other when they were all home together a few weeks ago. I love the way Amy and Lauren (though very different from each other) always seem to be there for each other. The same was with the boys. Yes, my family is my greatest treasure. Now that our family is growing I feel like the blessings are just multiplying and I feel content and truly rich!
Thanks so much to all of you out there that have been like family to me. Thanks for filling that sister void in me!
I hope each of you that has a sisters, daughter or friends... will tell them how much you appreciate the neat bond that you have between you. It is truly magical!
