Happy Birthday Lil Sis!


Tor - I love you! It's been fun having you stay with us the last 6 months. I know these last few years haven't been easy on either of us but with God's help we've made it and we are better because of it. I love seeing you become the women of God that wants you to be. You are beautiful both inside and out! The day your were born was a good day. The Lord knew that I a little sister but more than that he knew that I needed a best friend. There is so much more I could say but instead of me talking I'm going to let others do it for me. Here are a few quotes (that are all to true) about sisters that I wanted to share.

A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost. ~Marion C. Garretty

It was nice growing up with someone like you - someone to lean on, someone to count on... someone to tell on! ~Author Unknown

Sweet is the voice of a sister in the season of sorrow. ~Benjamin Disraeli

Sisters don't need words. They have perfected a language of snarls and smiles and frowns and winks - expressions of shocked surprise and incredulity and disbelief. Sniffs and snorts and gasps and sighs - that can undermine any tale you're telling. ~Pam Brown

What's the good of news if you haven't a sister to share it? ~Jenny DeVries

In the cookies of life, sisters are the chocolate chips. ~Author Unknown

Sisters are the people we practice on, the people who teach us about fairness and cooperation and kindness and caring - quite often the hard way. ~Pamela Dugdale

A sister smiles when one tells one's stories - for she knows where the decoration has been added. ~Chris Montaigne

It's hard to be responsible, adult and sensible all the time. How good it is to have a sister whose heart is as young as your own. ~Pam Brown

A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life. ~Isadora James

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

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

Our roots say we're sisters, our hearts say we're friends. ~Author Unknown
