Day 5-Your siblings


Telling the Family 12-3-05 003

So I mentioned that I was one of 5 girls right? These are my sisters! For a long while there were just us four. We are all 18 months apart which made for always having someone to play with. It also meant lots of bickering and girly disputes! Nine years after the first youngest came number five. I was 13 when she was born and let me tell you it was FUN! We all loved helping with our real life baby doll.


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

We’re all grown up now and definitely have our own personalities and interests.  I’m the oldest and am married with one child and one on the way. The second oldest is R, who has completed her training to be come a minister for The Way International, she now resides in Ohio full time and works at our ministry’s headquarters. The middle girl T, is our world traveller she’s been to many countries and I think speaks 3 (or 4) languages. Most recently she was a nanny in NYC but now she’s back home for a while as she too has enrolled in our ministry’s leadership program.  The second youngest, R, is married and is a high school teacher here locally, this time next year she believingly will be living in South Carolina with her husband.  The youngest, J, is still in high school and is active in the drama program and color / winter guard. She’s a tremendous babysitter too!




Sisters is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship.  ~Margaret Mead


I sure do love these ladies and all that they offer our family. When we’re all together we’re loud and like to all talk at once.  We do very much enjoy the time we have together, more and more it is becoming a rare treat to get to be in the same room with each other.  When we’re not chatting we LOVE to play games, board games, card games, puzzles, etc. We enjoy the fellowship that we have together as sisters.



When sisters stand shoulder to shoulder, who stands a chance against us?  ~Pam Brown 


I am excited to see how our relationships become even sweeter as we get older. I certainly thank God for each one of them!
