me and my little sister

I've decided that I need to spend more time with the people in my life that mean the most to me. So many things have happened in the last few weeks that have really opened up my eyes. Life is more than just ...Work. Life is just too short to let it pass by so quickly without sharing it with your friends and family. My sister and I keep trying to get together and haven't been able to since Christmas! Here we are already in February! Tomorrow is my day off and I plan to go and visit her. If she can't get off work maybe we can at least go out to eat lunch together. We need to spend time together. I miss her. This picture was taken a few years ago at at tea-party at her church. Everyone was asked to bring a teacup and saucer that you could exchange with the other ladies. They numbered each cup and everyone picked a number out of a box and that was the teacup that you got and the prayer partner you would have for that year. Wasn't that a good idea?

That is so nice ~ my sister lives far away and we don't get to see each other very often. My husband and I hope to make a trip "home" in June ~ it will be the first time in three years since I have seen my brothers and sister. Time flies...

I like the teacup idea!

This post about longing to see your sister made me cry. I won't go into the reasons here...I will only say that nurture this relationship and guard againt the evil ones who will seek to destroy it. God gave you to each other for a reason. I'm MORE HAPPY than I can say when I read about those of you who have successfully the precious bond of "sisterhood" in tact. It's my prayer...

Love to you...Rebecca

Lee, I use to have a tea party every Summer for all the women in my family and it was alot of fun.

When John got hurt I just didn't have time anymore, but I think I will have one this Summer for all the precious women in my family.

And for some of the women I have adopted as my sisters over the years.

Great post..

Sending you love, Nita
