How Many Sisters do you have?

Here is a picture of my siblings, both brothers and sisters! I am the one in the middle...and you may recognize my sister Diane from Saturday Finds, she is the pretty blonde right next to me!
A sister is more than the one you may share your parents with. I am lucky to have four biological sisters, Suzanne, Claudia Diane and Mary. I consider it an absolute blessing to have them in my life. We have so many memories that are unique unto us, and a bond that can't be broken. Sisters are indeed special and true gifts. We can't live without sisters in our lives to share our good times and those times of disappointment and despair.

It is with much joy that I accept the Sisterhood Award that was given to me my by my
blogging sister, Karen of Heart Felt Living.
She tells me this award is given to someone that shows sisterly attitude and gratitude! If I have demonstrated those traits, I am certainly humbled to have been acknowledged. I love being a sister and I am overjoyed to add new sisters to my family all the time. Don't limit your sisterhood to your own genealogy...there are sisters out there just waiting to have you consider them just that...a sister!

Are you familiar with any of these sisters?
The singing Lennon Sisters! They still perform together today!
The Andrew Sisters, WW II icons of Entertainment!
Remember these sisters.... Dear Abby & Dear Ann Landers.
These two are the Famous Dolly Sisters of Vaudeville Theater.
The Brown Sisters, They won the Youth Generosity of Spirit award from the Cancer Society for their volunteer services.
Look at these two cuties, the Pecorelli Sisters, collecting 100 food items on their "100th Day of School Celebration" to help feed those in need during this Recession Time.

You certainly don't need to be "famous" sisters to make an impact in this world.
You just need to have a generous attitude matched with heart felt gratitude and a sister, old or new to help you make a difference! Grab your sister today...tell her how much she means to you...and get started making a better day for someone in need!
Hooray for...Sisterhood!

Oh my! I have a brother - but to make up for the lack of having a sister I made sure my girls have plenty. Because of our combined families, my daughter, Libby, has eight sisters! That should about do it. :) ~Kelly

Thanks for visiting me! I always love to find a new-to-me blogger.

My goodness! That's quite a line up of siblings...what a clever way to take a photo of you all together, too. I have one sister. We have recently been through one of the most challenging times of our relationship, but I think we're both coming out stronger and better for it on the other side.

I'm bookmarking your site so that I may return and look around more. You've created a lovely blog.

What a nice family you have! I love this "sisters" post. I especially enjoyed those singing Lennon and Andrews Sisters. And looking at all these sisters has me singing "Sisters, sisters, there were never such devoted sisters . . ." that funny song Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen sing in White Christmas. My sister and I used to sing that together! Great post!

Amen, sister!

Looking back at all these entertainers is so much fun. I always wanted to one of the Lennon Sisters. They always seemed to have so much fun and get aong so well. I was one of four, and we lost the two boys but I still have my sister.
She loved to play with dolls, and talk to them, and I loved to climb trees and play softball in the park with the boys. I liked the exercize part of it and the boys all treated me so well once they knew I could really hit the ball !!!
Ah, Memories.........Good post !
