Sister Act

This week we celebrated National Siblings Day by saluting sisters, especially ours.
Here’s to the toe painters, eyebrow pluckers, sweater sharers, glass raisers, belly laughers, truth tellers, cookie dunkers, advice givers, movie raters, book reviewers, theatre goers, tea sippers, football followers.
Here’s to the girls who roll their eyes, but have our backs.
Here’s to our mother’s daughters, our daddy’s girls. Here’s to the girls who call us up and call us out.
Here’s to the godmothers and bridesmaids, guardians and friends.
We salute the childhood sharers and smile wearers, the head nodders and joke fodders, memory makers and vacation takers.
Here’s to the ground strokers, free throw chokers, spiral throwers, skull rowers, ball hoggers, slow joggers, hang gliders and wave riders.
God bless the sisters, the links in the chain. Keep safe the sweet ones, protect them from pain.
Here’s to the sisters, the coolest we know. They uphold tradition and make families grow.

This is me with my sisters Kathy and Jenny. I spent National Siblings day in the hospital with Kathy, the middle sister. She has been diagnosed with Her2 breast cancer.

Kathy's a mountain climber, though. She sailed through a 9 1/2 hour surgery this week and will have extensive chemo and radiation. Prayers and well wishes are welcome.

Eight sets of sisters made up the wediing party at Kathy's awesome nuptiials last June in Florida.

  1. What a great tribute to siblings Molly. Lots of prayers will be said for you sister. I will add her to my list. I do believe there is nothing more powerful then prayer. I have rosary’s all over the house. We know each other through Charlie & have never met, but please let me know if there is anything your family needs besides prayers. You may want to stop by Starbucks on Northland for a great cup of coffee. Keep the posts coming. I love them.

  2. Thanks for visiting and liking my post today. I love your tribute to sisters, and I wish your sister, Kathy, well as she battles this awful disease.

  3. Thanks for liking my post this morning!
