I am very grateful that my family is open with communication. My sister and I are pretty different in areas of our lives. Even still, I feel that she is one of my best friends. What a blessing to have a sister who is a best friend! We love each other, we respect each other, and we have the benefit of being family! No greater friendship than that of sisterhood.
My parents raised us to be respectful, have sympathy and empathy, and to walk in the way of God. I think they did a pretty good job, considering my brother and I are 19 months apart, and I was not even 3 when my sister was born! Great job Faithful Parents!! :)
I found this poem that I wrote a while ago...and not even sure if Faithful Sister has ever read it, but I share with you all now.
My sister's my hero
She is so, you see,
For she is the person
I strive so to be!
And her caring way;
I wish I could walk
In her shoes for a day!
Do you have siblings? Do you keep in close contact with them? Look past your differences and see your family, find love, shelter and God. I am blessed to be able to call her and if I have a problem I can talk to her about it, and I know she won't judge me. She is an awesome woman, and she is my sister! Xoxo
