"Sister" is a beautiful six letter word for me. "Sister or Sis" - not even a single day passed without the thought of her. Yes, I don't even have a brother. But I felt much for a sister. As a child I cried for her and as I grew up I started dreaming of her. I thought of lying on her lap and feeling her love. I searched for a sister in every girl that passed by. But couldn't have a sister. May be God punished me that way!

A good one, I had read it about 13 years ago, at my first job, thanks for sharing this

WORDS TO LIVE BY...sometimes I'm aware that time is so valuable (like when someone we care for is sick) but I don't pay attention often enough. Thank you PeedeeDog...these are beautiful and powerful words.

I once missed a flight to Hong Kong because I arrived too late at the check-in. My bad. The next scheduled flight was only three hours later, but it was embarrassing! It was a business trip... eughk!<br />

And my little Stunt Pixie of a niece (niece! NIECE!!! :D ) was born two weeks early. She is doing great, but even in this hot humid weather she has to wear a little woollen cap or her hands and feet (and her cauliflower nose) will get cold. She was born on 22nd May, but she was really only due on 3rd June or thereabouts. She is very thirsty but her mouth gets tired before she can get full, so she has to drink every 1.5 hours. Still, she's doing really well! But we know we dodged a bullet there.<br />

Re: the nine months, one of my former colleagues once confided in me -- tearfully -- that one of her babies was stillborn because the cord wrapped around the neck during the birth process. The baby's body was perfect, no sign of injury. But no life. I didn't know what to say.<br />
