Haiku Friday: Sisters

What is a sister?
Best friend and worst enemy
Sometimes both at once.

My girls love each other. This much I know. But they also dislike each other immensely at times. This, too, I can relate to. Having two sisters of my own, I know that love and hate can both be a part of a sister's relationship. But, I also know which of these is stronger.

I know that no matter how angry or frustrated or betrayed I feel I will come to my sisters' defense. I know that I will always be there for her and she for me. I know that we will forever be connected. Across all anger and pain and hurt, we will be sisters. And for that I am very thankful.

And I am thankful my girls will know that with each other as well. Even if they do occasionally pull each other's hair and bite...

**Thanks Eryn for pointing this out! These pics were from her wedding and taken by Kyle Hale who is, incidentally, amazing. So, if you're in Atlanta and looking for a good event photographer check out his site: **

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope the things I learned about my daughter's hair are helpful for you. It seems I talk to everyone that might possibly have advice for me.

I can't wait to see the relationship my two girls form. I have one brother.

Thanks for visiting my blog! Your girls are so cute!! I loved the post; it is so true too. My little sis and I fought all the time when we were little, but no matter what no one else could mess with her or hurt her because I would beat them up! And now my sis and I are super close and I am so very grateful for her. I'm sure that time will come for your girls too. :)
