Gratitude Challenge day 3

I was feeling a bit off today.Do you ever have those days?When your  feeling moody and emotional for any number of reasons? Well that was me today! Then something happened that brightened my day.My sister called! She is a fellow wife,mother,Christian and homeschooler. She is my big sis and always willing to listen and talk me through my bad days. I love her so very much. Since my husband is in the Army we don't live near family.Being far from my sister is hard for me.I am very thankful we both can keep in touch with the dial of a phone or a quick email :0)

When I think about my sister and how close we are,she really is my best friend  I have to chuckle a little!For it was not always so! As teenagers we fought like cats and dogs!We honestly couldn’t stand each other. One time it even came to blows!We were fighting over the thing all teen girls fight over,who got to use the phone!LOL  If someone had  told me then that now she would be my favorite friend and my closes confidant.I would have laughed.I am so thankful for my sister and the closeness we have developed over the years.

There's nothing like the love of a sister! I have two of my own, and I love them dearly!

You also have a mother who at times wondered if you would speak to each other after you no longer lived in the same house....what a blessing it is now to have you so close to each other.

I love you too sis! I can't imagine how we got from teens to now, but I'm so glad we did. We'll have to remind ourselves we made it through when our own kids start the teen years...(shudder). But I'm not really ready to think about that yet.

That is awesome! I wish I could say the same thing about my biological sister and I. We lead very different lives. BUT I have an "adopted" sister. We've been sisters for over 4 years and we are closer than my sister and I have ever been. We are family. We are sisters.

My sisters fought all the time growing up too. It is so good that you have a wonderful relationship now.
