Sisters

Happy Birthday Kimmy!
.
Love you very much!
.
She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child. ~Barbara Alpert
.
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
.
A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost. ~Marion C. Garretty
.
Is solace anywhere more comforting than in the arms of a sister. ~Alice Walker
.
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
.
You can kid the world. But not your sister. ~Charlotte Gray
.
Sisters never quite forgive each other for what happened when they were five. ~Pam Brown
.
A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves - a special kind of double. ~Toni Morrison
.
Children of the same family, the same blood, with the same first associations and habits, have some means of enjoyment in their power, which no subsequent connections can supply... ~Jane Austen, Mansfield Park, 1814
.
What's the good of news if you haven't a sister to share it? ~Jenny DeVries
.
Sisters is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship. ~Margaret Mead
.
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
.
When sisters stand shoulder to shoulder, who stands a chance against us? ~Pam Brown
.
The mildest, drowsiest sister has been known to turn tiger if her sibling is in trouble. ~Clara Ortega
.
A sister is a forever friend. ~Author Unknown
.
Sisters annoy, interfere, criticize. Indulge in monumental sulks, in huffs, in snide remarks. Borrow. Break. Monopolize the bathroom. Are always underfoot. But if catastrophe should strike, sisters are there. Defending you against all comers. ~Pam Brown
.
We know one another's faults, virtues, catastrophes, mortifications, triumphs, rivalries, desires, and how long we can each hang by our hands to a bar. We have been banded together under pack codes and tribal laws. ~Rose Macaulay
.
You are the best sister ever! (most of the time)

I Love my sister SO MUCH! This is a great pic of you two. Sister's are even better than Best Friends. No matter what they will love you and they know all your crap. Manda and I fought hard but loved harder.
