Have you heard the good news?
Nie will be back!!
As this whole situation has taken place in her life and the life of her family, it has had me thinking a lot. Her sister has taken on a task worthy of sainthood! It has had me thinking an awful lot about sisters.. dang.. if I had a sister, I would want one like them..
I am an only girl.
I will not lie. It definitely had it's benefits! No clothes to have to share.. no one to fight over time in the bathroom with.. own room.. I had friends who would tell me how much having a sister sucked. I didn't really feel a void, I am blessed with the most awesome mom ever!!
I did have a collection of friends. There wasn't always just one best friend, that area of life was most like the waves of an ocean. The friendships were always there, just more needed and right there at certain times in my life. The companionship ebbed and flowed when needed.
High school ended.
My friendships changed.
When adulthood was knocking at the door, was when I really desired a sister-like relationship. Someone, besides my mom (whom I love dearly!) to talk about marriage with, to talk about pregnancy, babies, and kids with..
My brothers got married, and I did get sisters, awesome sisters!! What a blessing they are..
I also have other "sisters".. women who would rescue me without a plea from me for help.. women who are always there for me no matter what.. women who might not have been raised in the same family I was, but have the same values, morals, and goals.. women who are always there to talk to, for long periods of time sometimes! Who celebrate with me, cry with me, laugh with me, a lot.. who enjoy pancakes ;) other late night snacks and gabs.. who share the same interests.
So, I don't have to long after a sister.. I have many.
I wish I had a picture of each of you.. I'd post them all, as pictures of "my sisters"..
Love you all!
Thanks for being my sisters..
