Now that I have a few followers who read my blog you have to know that this blog is, in fact my soap box. Some things in life have to be screamed from mountain tops. One of those things is my unequivocal love for my sister. My sister, Patty, Patricia, sweet little pumpkin head. Very few things in my life stir such emotion within me like my sister. We have been through so much together. Long before husbands or children ever came into the picture, it was me and Patty learning about life. Let me tell you about her....She’s positively contagious. Nobody can NOT like her. She has a personality people would kill for. She's an incredible mother to my two nephews whom I love so dearly. She's vibrant, smart, full of adventure, honesty, exuberance and when you're loved by her you can't help but to feel lucky. She's the kinda person you pray to have as a friend and I get as a sister. She's the only person on the face of this planet that I can be myself with (bad or good) and she loves me all the more. She can always make me smile and we've had more than a few things to NOT smile about over 33 years. I have no doubt our relationship will stand the test of time. I don't ever want to know life without her. She has blessed me more than I can truly explain. She's my biggest cheerleader, as I am hers. She's the one to sign my blog and post how much she loves me when nobody else will. So I found some sister quotes that illustrate undeniably one of the most meaningful relationships that I will ever form with another being. Allies, partners in crime...we fought, we patched up. We've laughed at jokes that no one can understand. We've defended each other when nobody else would understand. We did some of the silliest things together and there's so many stories to be recalled when we are together it's like living all over. I can never spend enough time with her. Through some of the darkest times (Brodie's open heart), we became unexplicably stronger and bonded to one another.
Do you have a sister? If you do, you'll know what I mean. If you don't know what I mean then be the first to let the ice thaw over your heart and warm up next to your sister and tell her you love her. What can be said about your unbreakable sister bond!
  • A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.-- Isadora James
  • A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.-- Marion C. Garretty
  • A younger sister is someone to use as a guinea-pig in trying sledges and experimental go-carts. Someone to send on messages. But someone who needs you - who comes to you with bumped heads, grazed knees, tales of persecution. Someone who trusts you to defend her. Someone who thinks you know the answers to almost everything.-- Pam Brown
  • Bless you, my darling, and remember you are always in the heart - oh tucked so close there is no chance of escape - of your sister. -- Katherine Mansfield
  • 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.-- Amy Li
  • How do people make it through life without a sister?-- Sara Corpening
  • Husbands come and go; children come and eventually they go. Friends grow up and move away. But the one thing that's never lost is your sister.-- Gail Sheeny
  • I know some sisters who only see each other on Mother's Day and some who will never speak again. But most are like my sister and me... linked by volatile love, best friends who make other best friends ever so slightly less best.-- Patricia Volk
  • I smile because you are my sister, I laugh because there is nothing you can do about it!-- Author Unknown
  • If we believed in the media we would think the only significant relationship in our lives is a romantic one. Yet sisterhood is probably the one that will last longer than any other... a sister will always be around.-- Jane Dowdeswell
  • 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.-- Linda Sunshine
  • In thee my soul shall own combined the sister and the friend.-- Catherine Killigrew
  • Is solace anywhere more comforting than in the arms of a sister.-- Alice Walker
  • It was nice growing up with someone like you - someone to lean on, someone to count on... someone to tell on!-- Author Unknown
  • It's hard to be responsible, adult and sensible all the time. How good it is to have a sister whose heart is as young as your own.-- Pam Brown
  • More than Santa Claus, your sister knows when you've been bad and good.-- Linda Sunshine
  • Our brothers and sisters are there with us from the dawn of our personal stories to the inevitable dusk.-- Susan Scarf Merrell
  • She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child.-- Barbara Alpert
  • You keep your past by having sisters. As you get older, they're the only ones who don't get bored if you talk about your memories.- Deborah Moggach

Hey Angela, how are you guy's? Were great, while we were in Halloween weekend Kathy showed me your blog. I started one a few months ago so that family and friends could see what's going on with us, but mainly Peyton. So sweet the praise you give Patty and I'm sure she would say the same for you, it's so great you two are close. Take care and hope to talk to you soon.

I can honestly say that no one has ever said such wonderful things about me. I wish everyone felt about me the way you do. However, for anyone that knows you, it is I that am honored to have a big sister like you. We are pretty great, eh? I love you sissy! I love your blog. I love hearing what your amazing mind has to say! Thank you. Thank you for loving me, no matter what! Thank you for being my sister! Thank You!
