From Chicken Soup for the Soul Daily Inspirations for Women

November 11

When you’re a child, a sister is a wonderful playmate. When the teen years approach, sisters share one thing in common: fighting.

As pimples give way to engagement rings, sisters share a late-night soda and their dreams, the dividing of the lingerie drawer, the solemnity of the wedding march and the good-bye tears to a chapter of life that has ended.

When buggies and basketballs begin to fill their lives, sisters hold each other close when happiness is overwhelming or grief overpowering.

Sisters can be aunts, wives, mothers or grandmothers, but if your life has been truly blessed, a sister can be your friend.

Alice Collins

If you have a sister who can
be your friend, you are truly blessed.
