Morning Folks 09 14 07 - Sisters

Bless you, my darling, and remember you are always in the heart - oh tucked so close there is no chance of escape - of your sister. ~Katherine Mansfield

If sisters were free to express how they really feel, parents would hear this: "Give me all the attention and all the toys and send Rebecca to live with Grandma." ~Linda Sunshine

How do people make it through life without a sister? ~Sara Corpening

Brothers and sisters are as close as hands and feet. ~Vietnamese Proverb

If you don't understand how a woman could both love her sister dearly and want to wring her neck at the same time, then you were probably an only child. ~Linda Sunshine

Our siblings push buttons that cast us in roles we felt sure we had let go of long ago - the baby, the peacekeeper, the caretaker, the avoider.... It doesn't seem to matter how much time has elapsed or how far we've traveled. ~Jane Mersky Leder

Sibling relationships - and 80 percent of Americans have at least one - outlast marriages, survive the death of parents, resurface after quarrels that would sink any friendship. They flourish in a thousand incarnations of closeness and distance, warmth, loyalty and distrust. ~Erica E. Goode, "The Secret World of Siblings," U.S. News & World Report, 10 January 1994

She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child. ~Barbara Alpert

Sisters Cindy and Becky

I have two sisters. One of them is very sick right now. She is on the mend, but still we are worried. My middle sister Cindy is in the hospital. But as of last night, and if all goes well, she will be out of intensive care today and she can go home on Saturday. A bout with pneumonia can't keep her down for long, I know that.

My youngest sister Becky is on her way to be with her this weekend, bearing chicken soup and laundry. That could be another sister quote, don't you think? "A sister is the only one who brings you chicken soup and her laundry when you are sick." And Becky is just what the doctor ordered for Cindy. Being so far away, it is a comfort for me to know that they have each other.

We have a brother, Chuck, too, as most of you know. But there is something special about sisters that anyone who has one knows only too well.

Please send your good thoughts and prayers to my sister Cindy today. And I will be praying for her recovery and with gratitude that we have each other. Feel better soon, Cindy.
