Tuesday's Tribute and Wordful Wednesday...


So, I decided to combine these 2 "tag-alongs," since I've been missing out on Wednesdays lately and they are both from the same fun, sassy and ever so enjoyable site/lady. My tribute may get wordful because it is my sister, Cheryl (and a devoted follower, no bribing necessary). I will try to summarize the best way I know how....Here goes...

We had such a bonding relationship as children, never fighting, or being cruel...cough, cough. Fortunately we survived being sisters early on, with minor bodily damage (think I still have that bald spot and she can still see from her left eye)giggle... Our relationship took on a whole new level after we left the comforts of home (getting married and college) and hit adulthood with children. We moved to Utah, living with her and family for 3 weeks. My Kelcie and her Bridger became the best of friends during that time as well as the friendship that started with us and continues to this day. Catch that? Trying to keep it short...

She moved away (can't believe she would be so selfish to do that to me...because as always this tribute has to do with me). With baptisms, blessings, vacations, work, computer and the phone, I have been blessed to stay in touch with her. She is a seminary teacher, public relations specialist for the church in her area, daughter, wife, and above all a spectacular mother. In between those important roles in her life she keeps up with her blogging, facebooking, and other relationships in her life.

I have weathered many storms with her right by my side encouraging and loving me all the way through them (I know she secretly did when we were younger to, the horns came out more, where now it's just a halo:0). I know a phone call away with her has greater impact for a better day than a coke (ok, that's pushing it..tehe). I am truly blessed to have you Cheryl...I love you... Sisters do make the best of friends! Love her button...give it a click and goosh (it's a family thing)on her...she loves it!

Gosh! What did I do to deserve this?!
I'm not really sure if I ever outgrew the horns. I think they just got less noticeable. Although lately I'm sure they are out there!
Love you.

How lovely. I wasn't blessed with a sister. I've always wished I had been.

Sisters are such an amazing blessing, and it sounds like you have a pretty special one. I loved reading your post. I'll have to stop in to see her, too. :)

I found that my relationship with my sister also improved greatly when we moved out of my parents' house! :)
