For those fortunate enough to have a sister, the first Sunday in August is set aside just for you! This year that day falls on August 3rd. As for me, I never had a sister but do have three daughters. They will definitely attest to life with a sister. Good times, happy times, sad times, bad times…all are a part of life but bottom line, they will always be sisters.
Sisters’ Day is your chance (if you have a sister, that is) to show your appreciation for that special family relationship. All siblings have the odd argument here and there, but deep down there’s little way around the natural bond of siblings.
Make this day a special celebration for your sister, by however you feel is best. If you don’t have a sister, you can still celebrate the friendships of sisterhood by having a girl’s night out!
Sisters We’ll Always Be
Sisters, sisters, sisters
Skipping through life happily.
Never a lonesome moment
For sisters we’ll always be.
How scared we were
The day we chased away the honeybee!
Remember the aroma coming from the kitchen?
Homemade cookies ready before eleven.
Mama let us eat them hot from the oven,
Um-m-m, melting in our mouths, tasting from Heaven.
How many chocolate chips were in your cookie?
Mine only had seven!
Fights over clothes seemed to never end.
You must wear this; you can’t wear that.
That one is mine; this one is yours.
You’ll stretch it out; you’re too fat.
Oh, how the words hurt as retaliation resulted in combat!
Younger days, too bad they had to come to a close:
Spouts with friends speaking in each other’s behalf,
Coming home late dreading to face Mom and Dad,
Sibling rivalry seemed to last time and a half.
Isn’t it funny how we look back in time?
All the times we fought and argued weren’t funny then,
But now we laugh and laugh!

To all sisters, have a purr-fect day!
