Sisters Make Great Best Friends!

My sister is my best friend. I guess it just snuck up on me gradually. First, we were too far apart to be really close friends. Then, when she got married and our life stages became the same, we got very close. It wasn't until recently, however, that I realized that she is my all-time best friend! She and her family were in Germany for two weeks and I missed her so much (even though we live some...750ish miles apart!) When frustrating things happen, it is her that I think of calling first and I have never been so genuinely happy (without any jealousy) for another person as when she told me that she was going back to Germany to visit with her family! I feel so blessed to have a sister!

K prays for a sister almost every night. I hope her prayers come true, although I also have faith that God knows what he is doing and our family will be exactly as it should!

I have also been blessed with my sisters-in-law and my "sisters" at Church! Aren't sisters awesome!?!

I would post a picture of me with my sister, but my batteries in my camera are dead...too many pictures of the Kindergarten play last night!

sisters are awesome mynew BIL says after seeing us all working and playing at the weddings and all that and we remind him of a 1950's show where sisters all get along and like each other granted he is new to the family but it makes me feel happy and want to try harder I love all my siblings and do wish more of them lived closer.

Aw! I miss my sisters! I wish that we lived closer and were closer. I need to call them more often.

My sister is my best friend too! How ironic! :) This touched my heart! Someday we'll live close enough to get on each other's nerves! :)

I have 3 sisters too and they're best friends also! Luckily, we all live pretty close to each other. I know it won't always be that way, but I'm enjoying while I have it. What a great post! :D
