What Makes A Great Sister

This is a repost, thought I would share it with Susie's friends...like her header states
"Where friends become Family"

What makes a Great sister....

1. Knowing she will loan you her clothes, even though I am too big to fit in them (maybe that is why she said I could borrow them).

2. Picks up your sick kids when you can't. Usually they puke on her...

3. She can handle it when you confess that six months ago she made you mad, lets you chew her out. And then she states that she is sorry, she did not know.

4. When you think your husband has burned his last bridge after 21 years. She reminds you that he is like a brother to her and tells you stories of why you loved him to begin with. She is great because she picked a Great husband as well...

5. Talks to you on your drive home from work (45 min.) I look forward to the drive CrAzY huh?

6. Will celebrate your 40th Birthday not in Vegas, Paris, Rio...but at a hunting camp, joking in a deer stand (neither of us could shoot anything did not have a gun). Birthday there so the entire family could be together. Worst yet, located 50 miles from nearest Wal-Mart craft dept. Hobby Lobby...No one has even heard of them there..

7. Allows your dog to come in her house, even though he poops on her livingroom floor EVERY time he goes to visit.

8. I could go on for ever....Most of all is that she makes ME feel like the Greatest Sister, when actually it is HER !!

SO IF YOU HAVE A SISTER GREAT AS MINE....LET HER KNOW WHY

Great post. We all need our sisters. I wish I lived a little closer to mine.

I was wondering if you do the house blessing in any colors? You can email me at reneemccr@aol.com

Thanks

Your post melted my heart. So real and so genuine! The two of you are indeed blessed to be so close! I admire your relationship!
Thank you for leaving a message about your own experience with your chickens loosing their feathers. I was getting worried there! The new feathers are growing in, they look SO strange! Also, we are getting one egg aday ... it's a start! :o)
Have a wonderful weekend!
Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne

I know what you mean about sisters; I would be lost without mine. It's hard though because she lives 325 miles away!

Have fun on your road trip!

I have been a regular reader of Susie's and she really sounds like a wonderful sister. I am fortunate to have a wonderful sister too! She gave us a little tour of your house, and it is great! Thanks to both of you for sharing. Jackie
