A Sister is a Little Bit of Childhood that Can Never Be Lost

My sister, Suzanne, and I share a special, unbreakable bond. The comfort and support are 
undeniable, but the laughter and fun times that we have together have created memorable moments that will last a lifetime.  She constantly keeps my glass full, my laughter strong, and my heart happy. My sister is a true friend to my heart, the laughter and joy of my soul, and the light of my life.

I smile because you are my sister, I laugh because there is nothing you can do about it! Unknown

Having a sister is like having a best friend you can’t get rid of.  You know whatever you do, they’ll still be there.  ~Amy Li

We no longer need words; we’ve perfected a language of expressions and body movements that far out-way any conversation or spoken language.

My glass is always full with love, and liquor, when Suzanne is around. 😉

We’ve reached new heights together.

During the week of my Jamaica wedding, it was her unconditional love and encouragement that made me realize that “sisters function as safety nets in a chaotic world simply by being there for each other” (Carol Saline).

We share childhood memories that bring the grown-up dreams alive and she has gone from the one who reaches for my hand to the one that touches my heart.

  1. Beautiful post. You are lucky to have such a great bond. I consider my best friend my sister since we’ve gown up since the age of 4 together. Everyone should cherish their siblings, thank you for reminding us.


  2. Wow, you are very lucky to be able to travel with your sister. Can’t wait to hear your stories of the traveling baby on the way. Traveling with my sister in Iceland was one of my weirdest trips and I hope to be able to repeat it some day. Nice photoblography.


  3. Fabulous post and tribute to your special bond of sisterhood and friendship. I don’t have a fleshly sister but I do have a cousin (we are 6 weeks apart in age) that I grew up with and we feel like we have that sister bond. I treasure her and our memories. ~~Bliss


  4. Love this post! You capture the essence of the relationship I have with my daughter (I wasn’t blessed with a sister, but I do have a wonderful daughter). Best friend, soulmate, kindred spirit, unconditional love, encouragement, absolute faith, trust and loyalty. We’ve traveled together, laughed a lot, cried occasionally, hugged like we’ll never let go, and will always be connected. How lucky we are! She lives in Australia now, so I rarely get to see her (I’m in Canada), but we did have 2 incredible days together during a recent trip home (which I blogged about at http://fabfiftyfive.wordpress.com/2012/01/31/funky-female-fun/) Relationships like these are such a gift!


  5. I have the same bond with my big sister and big brother – although I live in the US and they are still back home in England – the distance doesn’t matter and only strengthens the bond. I can’t imagine not having them in my life!


    • My family is spread out as well but when we are together its as if there was never a break in time. We share the same jokes, make the same goof ball comments and laugh all the time.


  6. Posts like this sometimes make me wish I wasn’t an only child. Oh well, can’t do anything about it now! I will just have to take comfort in enjoying never having to share and having all the attention (both a blessing and a curse!) Thank you for sharing a little more of your family with us all!

  7. You are so blessed to have such a great relationship with your sis! I’ve always wanted that kind of closeness with mine…Still…whenever we ARE together there is a kind of bond that cannot be denied. Thanks for sharing Lesley!


  8. I happen to be a middle sister and I know EXACTLY what you mean. While my older sister and I live in the States (only 2.5 miles from one another), my younger sister lives in Germany. God Bless Skype’s inventors–it makes it easier to accept the distance.


  9. Wonderful! I am blessed with three sisters, one brother, and two nieces and a nephew, who light up my world~ it looks like you are enjoying aunthood as well! Thank you for sharing the warmth and love of your bond. ❤


  10. I love this post!<3 me and my sister are thick as thieves, and we do get on eachother's nerves at times but i'm glad that I can't get rid of her:) No matter what we are there for eachother! You worded everything very eloquently.
