Sister Night

I'll get to the St. Patty's pictures, the co-op pasta bridge competition, ballet pictures, cooking club...
but the crafts and activities pale in comparison to the people...
Particularly these people, my fabulously lovely little sisters.
A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost. ~Marion C. Garretty Ah, yes, the parking lot at Promenade must have enjoyed our hyper frenzied laughing and jumping.

Children of the same family, the same blood, with the same first associations and habits, have some means of enjoyment in their power, which no subsequent connections can supply... ~Jane Austen, Mansfield Park, 1814

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. ~Clara Ortega



How do people make it through life without a sister? ~Sara Corpening
