A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves - a special kind of double.
-- Toni Morrison

Big sisters are the crab grass in the lawn of life.
-- Charles M. Schulz

Husbands come and go; children come and eventually they go. Friends grow up and move away. But the one thing that's never lost is your sister.
-- Gail Sheeny

If sisters were free to express how they really feel, parents would hear this: "Give me all the attention and all the toys and send Rebecca to live with Grandma."
-- Linda Sunshine

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

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

Have a great one!!

I like that last definition of siblings by Carol Ortega. So true, so true. Happy Birthday Nettie, enjoy the good times.

I LOVE the Clara Ortega quote. It seems to be true - we remember the child we all were and the fun we had, but we have grown to appreciate the women we are and the contributions to each other that we make. Love you both and wishing Nettie a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Thank you for the Birthday post Whitey! So far today (tonight) I don't feel any older. I found out that now that I have turned the age that I am, I can get our dogs licensed for a lifetime for only $20. Yes!
