Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things About My Sister
1. She is a great mother to my niece and nephew
2. She trusts me (she let me keep her kids for the last three days, thats why I haven't been blogging!!)
3. I also trust her (I can go to her with anything!)
4. She is our family's "worrier" I never have to worry about anything because I have my sister!
5. She loves Third Day as much as I do. (She's actually responsible for my love of Third Day, Thanks, sis!!)
6. When we were younger and shared a room before she got married, we'd stay awake late at night playing this crazy rhyming game where if you said something that didn't rhyme, you lost.
7. She has an awesome singing voice.
8. She and I look alike (this is weird to me. As I said last week, my brother and I look alike. However, people say that my sister and brother don't really look alike. Apparently I'm the child that is a mix betwixt my parents. My brother looks like dad, my sister looks like mom. I got the best of both!! LOL!)
9.She is absolutely terrified of needles (Honestly I don't know how she gave birth to two children!)
10. She cried and cried when I had to have my appendix out b/c she loves me so much!
11. She cried even more when I had to have brain surgery last year. As I said above, I didn't have to worry about this because she had it covered!
12. She's seven years older than me, but despite some rough times in our growing up years, we are as close as two sisters can be!
13. She's my other best friend (like I said last week, my brother is one of them!!)

Aww. But I totally agree with the needles and worrying thing!

Hopefully, I can do as good a tribute to my sister eventually.

She sounds really neat.

That's awesome that you have such a close relationship with your sister. I think that's how all sisters should be.

My sister and I are 7 years apart, but I am the older and the worrier. Nice list about your sis. Very clear that you love her, lucky her!

Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

It sounds like your sister is really sweet. I'm glad you weren't blogging for fun reasons, I was afraid your dad had taken a turn for the worst.

Glad to know you're doing okay. My TT are up too. Happy Thursday.

TNChick said...

Trust is a major thing - that's one that that most lack and it's wonderful you have that, as you should. I don't like needles, either. Ouch.

Dawn said...

What a sweet post. I always wished I had a sister, but glad I have my brother. Now I have a sister, b/c she's one of my best friends, not a sister in law!

So sweet! Glad you're back!
