"sisters" come to us in
many, many
different ways....

there are those "sisters" who
we can talk with for hours and who
make us laugh so hard
we pee our pants...

there are those "sisters" who become
sisters through marriage
and are better for it...

there are "those" sisters
who have an innate desire
to protect those younger than them...

there are those "sisters" who
you meet through blogging or
an art retreat
who "get" you and have your back...
who you find hard to believe you
didn't know your entire life...

and there are those "sisters" who
share our childhood,
our ups and
our downs,
and love us in spite of all our craziness
and will pray for us when we need it
and guard our secrets with their lives.

but quite simply....

when it comes down to it,

we are ALL

Sisters at Heart!

i am beyond grateful for all the "sisters"
i am blessed enough to have in my life.

let your "sisters" know today
how much you love and appreciate them!!
i know i am!!!

  18. Hi Beautiful Sister...
    That was such a wonderful post. I count myself as one of your sisters and I feel so lucky for that. I would really love to buy a print of the painting you did for this post-can I do that? It would mean a lot to me to have something of yours hanging here in my home. Lots of love to you sweet, beautiful sister. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox

  19. Oh I LOVE this! When I first started reading I felt sad because my sister and I get along but are not *close.* But I have all of my creative soul-sisters- I have so many heart sisters that I adore! Thank you for this lovely reminder. Hugs to you Kolleen!

  20. Wow Kolleen I love this post I've stumbled upon it at a time when I needed this reminder the most. Life can get hard sometimes and knowing that my "sisters" through family, childhood, and blogging know what it's like and have your back in a way that cannot be explained is amazing.
