Sisters, Sisters

I may or may not be one of the luckiest girls in the world.  Why? Funny you should ask.  It's simple, I have been blessed with the three most unique, caring, and funny sisters in the world.  Notice, I didn't say friendly.  Sometimes they are a little too honest and bold.  I know when they are bold or harsh with me it is because they honestly know me.  They know when I am being too critical of myself, too judgmental of others, or not judgmental enough.  With that being said, I want to take a moment and tell what makes each of my sisters special to me.

Renee: Renee' is the oldest sibling in my family.  She has always been a "little mother" to us.  Renee' is nurturing.  She is the most giving and selfless individual that I have had the privilege of not only being acquainted with but to to be a recipient of her abounding love.  Renee' also developed my father's work habits.  She is a mother, a wife, a student, a real estate agent, and works a job at night.  I honestly don't know how she does it and still manages to make everyone she meets feel special and show them that she cares.  Renee' is a nurturer, a hard worker, and a true friend.

Sandra: You won't catch me writing nice things about Sandra every day.  Sandra is the sister I shared my room with growing up.  We shared our most personal secrets and desires with each other in that tiny room.  If you have earned Sandra's friendship you have earned the friendship of a most devoted person. She can be your greatest friend or your greatest enemy.  I promise you that you would much rather her be your friend.  Sandra is genuine like that.  She won't say something just because you want her to say it.  She is completely honest, even when the truth sucks.  If she does something for you, it is because she wants to, not because she feels obligated to.  She will help anyone who will help themselves.  I love Sandra's firmness and will.  She is a great example.

Charity: Charity is the optimist.  She is such a happy person.  If you have had the honor of knowing Charity for a while, you have witnessed some of the hard trials she has had to overcome and she always does so with a smile on her face.  She has a way of taking the most horrible experiences and finding something positive in them.  Charity is radiant and not afraid to let herself shine.  Charity is one of my most trusted friends.  She has taught me how truly love others and not be afraid to smile.  She has let me know that sometimes it is okay to allow myself to be vulnerable and overcome my fear of expressing myself.  She is five years younger than me and has still found ways to teach me and help me grow.  If you haven't experienced the light that beams from Charity, you are missing out on something special.

These three ladies are truly my best friends and have too many amazing characteristics to write about. I love them each and I am grateful that each is willing to let me be in their life and are teaching me to be a better lady by example.
