As we have traveled down the road of life, the time I've been given to spend with my sisters,
has meant more to me than mere words could ever express.
There never seems to be enough time, nor the right place,
to say all the heartfelt things you want your sisters to know.
Sieze every moment, seek out every opportunity, for if you wait for that perfect moment,
you may one day find, it is too late...
I have now lost both of my sisters at such an early age. Dian was 49 when she
unexpectedly succumb to Lupus on May 14, 2001. Linda was only 39 when she left
us suddenly because of an aggressive lung cancer on December 19, 2004.
What I would give to have my sisters back, if only for a day...
Following are quotes dedicated to the special bond that only sisters share.
"Loving a sister is an unconditional narcissistic and complicated devotion
that approximates a Mother's love. Sisters are inescapably connected, shaped by the same two parents,
the same trove of memory and experience."
"Both within the family and without, our sisters hold up our mirrors:
our images of who we are and of who we can dare to become."
"The desire to be and have a sister is a primitive and profound one
that may have everything or nothing to do with the family a woman is born to.
It is a desire to know and be known by someone who shares blood and body, history and dreams."
"My sisters have taught me how to live."
"Sisters is probably the most competitive relationship within the family,
but once sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship."
"Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of.
You know whatever you do, they'll still be there."
"Sisters are for sharing laughter and wiping tears."
"Good friends are like brothers and sisters you can choose."
"How do people make it through life without a sister?"
"There can be no situation in life in which the conversation of my dear sister
will not administer some comfort to me."
~Lady Mary Worley Montagu~
"One's Sister is a part of one's essential self,an eternal presence of one's heart and soul and memory."
"My sister taught me everything I need to know, and she was only in the sixth grade at the time."
"Chance made us Sisters, hearts made us friends."
"There is no time like the old time, when you and I were young!"
~Oliver Wendell Holmes~
"No one knows better than a Sister how we grew up, and who our friends, teachers and favorite toys were.
No one knows better than she..."
~Dale V. Atkins~
"Sisters -- they share the agony and the exhilaration. As youngsters they may share popsicles,
chewing gum, hair dryers and bedrooms. When they grow up, they share confidences, careers and children,
and some even chat for hours every day."
"Sisters examine each other so they can have a map for how they should behave."
~Michael D. Kahn~
"A sister is both your mirror -- and your opposite."
"Sisterhood is powerful."
"Your sister is the only creature on earth who shares your heritage, history, environment,
DNA, bone structure, and contempt for stupid Aunt Gertie."
"Sisters touch your heart in ways no other could.
Sisters share... their hopes, their fears, their love, everything they have.
Real friendship springs from their special bonds."
"If your sister is in a tearing hurry to go out and cannot catch your eye, she's wearing your best sweater."
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."
"There's a special kind of freedom sisters enjoy. Freedom to share innermost thoughts, to ask a favor,
to show their true feelings. The freedom to simply be themselves."
"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."
"Is solace anywhere more comforting than that in the arms of a sister?"
"We are sisters. We will always be sisters. Our differences may never go away,
but neither, for me, will our song."
"The best thing about having a sister was that I always had a friend."
~Cali Rae Turner~
"To have a loving relationship with a sister is not simply to have a buddy or a confident...
it is to have a soulmate for life."
"You can't think how I depend on you, and when you're not there the color goes out of my life."
~Victoria Woolf -- To Her Sister~
"There is no substitute for the comfort supplied by the utterly taken-for-granted relationship."
"We are more than just acquaintances...it's as if we are cut from the same fabric.
Even though we appear to be sewn in a different pattern, we have a common thread that won't be broken,
by people or years or distance."
"Like branches on a tree we grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one.
Each of our lives will always be a special part of the other."
