"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.
