Thankful Thursday! Sisters!

November is here again, how did that happen so fast?! And with the month of November comes Thankful Thursdays! It's where every Thursday of November I Blog about things I'm Thankful for, and hopefully Inspire you to be a little more Thankful in your everyday life.

Today I'm Thankful for Sisters!
There's nobody like a Sister!
It's a Special Relationship.
You share things that only you know,
You can tell her things you can't tell anybody else.

I lost my only Sister, Debbie, to cancer in 2001
I miss her all the time, but especially in November.
November 3rd is her Birthday
And Thanksgiving was her Favorite Holiday! 

And I am so Blessed as a Mother 
to watch my girls experience the Sister Bond!
Yes, all Sisters disagree & argue at times, 
but there's no one closer!

 Something Unique about my Family 
is that my Grandmother had 2 Daughters:
my Aunt Molly & my Mom Pat. 
My Mom had 2 Girls: My Sister Debbie & I. 
Debbie had 2 Daughters: Shawna & Stormy. 
My Niece Shawna has 2 Girls: Alysha & Amanda. 
Stormy also has 2 Girls: Morgan & Shay. 
And I have 2 Daughters myself: Erica & Alexia. 
I have told my girls, they can have 0 Sons up to 5 Sons,
it doesn't matter, but they WILL have 2 Daughters! 
It's in our Genes! :)
I firmly believe that 
Every Girl Needs A Sister! 

On Debbie's Birthday I was looking through my Memory Box
and I found this:
It's a Poem Debbie wrote for me,
and it's in her own Beautiful Handwriting

 It's one of my most prize possessions
I can't tell you how Thankful I am to have it!

My Sister was 13 when I was born
I wanted to be with her all the time!

Mother & Daughters 80's Style! ;)
We got closer as I got older!

Weather your 13 years apart, like Debbie & I were,
or 4 minuets apart like my girls are,
Sisters share a Special Bond.
Today & Everyday I'm thankful for mine!
