Sisters and cousins


My sister and her family have spent the last week with us and the time went by way to fast.  We laughed until we cried, we ate way too much, we stayed up late critiquing watching Dancing with the Stars, we shared our heart with each other, we watched cousins being best friends, we ordered cheese fries at Outback, shared makeup, talked about style (or in my case, lack of), hair coloring, and decorating.  We compared everything from gray hair to cell phones.   We talked about Jesus and heaven, and sinners and saints.  We dreamed about living in the same town and the fun that we would have.  As I grow older, I appreciate my "peanut-butter-sister-time" more with each visit.  I enjoy watching my 4 lovely's playing with their cousins and seeing their friendships grow, too.   Thank you, Jesus, for sisters...and for cousins.   I am blessed-

that is amazing, I am not close with my sister no matter how hard I try to create that bond. I'm so glad you get to enjoy yours!!

How wonderful... I wish I was close like that with my sister. I'm not.
But God is good to me, and I have a handful of girlfriends who are like sisters to me.
Your time together sounds like my life with "sisters".
Love it!
