i have sisters. each unique and matchless in their charm and in what they bring to the world at large. witty, smart, generous, elegant, kind, thoughtful, classy, selfless, funny, beautiful. they are so exceptional and i admire them all more than i can really articulate. that they are so fabulous shouldn't be surprising, as they have Our Mom as an example. it's certainly no secret that we worship the water she walks on.
sisters are easily taken for granted as they are always THERE. when you need them and when you don't, but mostly when you don't think you need them, but deep down inside, you really do. that's actually when you need them most of all.
the camaraderie, the solidarity, the unity.....can lift you when you are down, and hold you there until you can manage on your own.
you are never alone as she is there in spirit, if not in flesh, and the connection that exists is the strongest, and sweetest, of all friendships.
sisters are there to revel in your success, to share in your joy and happiness. to appreciate and empathize...............and mostly, to Understand.
how lucky am i to have that four times over.
these people say it better than i ever could....................
A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves - a special kind of double.

We know one another's faults, virtues, catastrophes, mortifications, triumphs, rivalries, desires, and how long we can each hang by our hands to a bar. We have been banded together under pack codes and tribal laws.
