My little sister is 7 years my junior. I tell her now and then, that 7 years is not all that long. I mean think about the 7th inning stretch... it's longer than what? And then there is the 7 year itch, which sounds pretty awful. Of course, when I was 8 and she was 1, 7 years was quite a few. But now in 2008, the 7 years between her and me isn't all that bigga deal, right baybee?
My main point here, is that sisters R spectacular. My girls used to grumble about various horrible deeds of rotton sisters, and I told them over and over, "Sisters are really important! and very special people in your life... I really love my sister!" More than once each of them would look at me through angry tears and demand, "WHO-OO is YOUR sister????" Obviously, their sisters were more rotton than mine.
So give your sister a call today, or a hug if she is close enough. And, now that I give it a thought, we are all sisters so line up for many hugs. I am so glad that my sister and my niece and my daughter and her 2 daughters are all home from their fabulous vacation!
