My Sisters

By
Real Estate Agent with Vision Quest Realty WV0026375

I love my sisters.

My three younger sisters. Avis, Linda, and Alice are building a house and will be living together. Hopefully, the house will be finished by Christmas. It is a 3BR/3.5BA Ranch, 2-car garage, screened-in back porch and an open floor plan with a large kitchen/family room. Avis is Linda's caregiver as she is legally blind and has health issues.

My sister Alice is so creative and talented. She is always available to give me advice or help me make a craft. Her Fall crafts were a big hit this year as well as her Christmas wreaths. Her Christmas wreaths were on display during this past weekend at the Lewisburg Fall Festival, November 23 and 24. Below are some of the wreaths she created and sold.

Besides Avis. Linda and Alice, I also have three older sisters..... Myrlon, Brenda, and Betty.  

When younger, Myrlon and Brenda both had long red hair that was absolutely beautiful. I remember one day at high school, Myrlon and I were walking to a nearby shop for lunch. Cars actually stopped to check out Myrlon. Today, they both have lovely white hair and are just as sweet and beautiful.

Betty is my oldest sister and we all look up to her. She has had a rough time since 2015. Her husband died, her son had a heart attack (he is doing fine now and lives with his mom), and Betty had knee replacement surgery that went wrong. She got TB bacteria in her knee while at the hospital. After three years and six surgeries, she is doing much better. Betty is a saint. She was Dad's caregiver as well as my brother, Donald's caregiver.  Our mother died at the age of 53, and Betty has been like a mother to me. 

 

I love all my sisters, we are all different, and yet alike. I see my sisters often at least once a month and talk to at least one of them daily/weekly.    It is so much fun when we can all get together, to reminisce and have a wonderful fellowship.  

 


The following quotes about sisters made me smile.

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, No Friend Like a Sister, 1996

 

It was nice growing up with someone like you — someone to lean on, someone to count on… someone to tell on! ~Author unknown

 

A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost. ~Marion C. Garretty, unverified

 

Our siblings: they resemble us just enough to make all their differences confusing, and no matter what we choose to make of this, we are cast in relation to them our whole lives long. ~Susan Scarf Merrell, The Accidental Bond: The Power of Sibling Relationships, 1995

 

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, Mom Loves Me Best (And Other Lies You Told Your Sister), 2006

  

The best thing about having a sister was that I always had a friend. ~~Author unknown

  

For there is no friend like a sister,
In calm or stormy weather;
To cheer one on the tedious way,
To fetch one if one goes astray,
To lift one if one totters down,
To strengthen whilst one stands.
~Christina Rossetti, “Goblin Market,” 1862

 

I am so blessed and thankful to have six wonderful sisters!

Hi Rebecca - I enjoyed learning a bit about your sisters, and really like the sister quotes you shared.

The house Avis, Linda and Alice are building sounds perfect. Shared housing is an idea whose time has come (long overdue in my opinion.)

I love this post so much, Rebecca. I love that they are going to be living together. With five daughters, I appreciate the dynamics of their differences but they are always there for each other. Thanks for sharing this heartwarming post.

Mimi Foster , thank you. My three younger sisters have always been close. Our mother died at the early age of 53 of pancreatic cancer. They were always together and after their husbands died and since they were alone it just made perfect sense.

HI Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor® what a lovely sister story! And WOW you have a lot of sisters! How lucky you all  are!! My sister is at my home now and she truly is my best friend. She's 9 years younger than me and I was so SOOOO happy to hear my Mom had a girl after 3 boys in a row. There is just something so special between sisters - for a lifetime!
