    My friend in the hospital with Cancer.. She recieved a card, and it hit home so well. We read it together and it just is so special.. Never heard this story/poem before and wanted to share it!


    I thank my God every time I remember you. Philippians 1:3 (NIV)

    One is here, one lives there. One is a little taller than the other. Two different colors of hair, two different outlooks on life, two very different views from their windows.

    Both have different tomorrows ahead. Each is unique in so many ways. Each has her own story, with all the busy things going on in the present.

    Each has different work to do, and different demands on the day. Each had separate destinations and a distinctly different path to get there.

    But... For all the things that might be different and unique about them... these two sisters will always share so much. They will always be the best of family and friends, entwined together, through all the days of their lives. Their love will always be very special: gentle and joyful when it can be, strong and giving when it needs to be, reminding them, no matter how different their stories turn out...They share the incredibly precious gift of being "sisters."

    And when you think of some of the best things this world has to offer, a blessing like that is really... what it's all about.

    I got sisters, 5 of them. Unfortunately I am not really close to any of them anymore. A sister don't have to be a "blood relative" A sister can be a best friend. Then in a more Christian/Religious form.. The fellowship of the churches somettimes call each other brother and sister.....
