Midweek Features 15/12/2010 – Sisterhood

Christmas is close and it makes me think about family – not just the people that share the same part of the gene pool with us, but also those that have become family.

Usually half of the features would be writing, but just this once there are only pictures – I will follow this up next week with an all writing feature. 🙂

The image that started me off on this journey is my own picture and, again, just for once, I am featuring one of my own and I’ve paired it with a picture of a braid. Why? I hear you ask, well, because so much about sisters seems to be about hair. I can’t count the times I did my sisters’ hair. LOL

And then there are the many ways we ‘make’ family. Remember your very best friend? The one you went through thick and thin with? And then there’s the family we inherit by marriage and the birth of a grand child. Sisterhood knows no age nor bounds…

There are the things we do and the things we share that make us sisters too. Remember the secrets told and the experiences we shared?

And then there are the hobbies and traits we have in common be it a star sign (most apt, Gemini) or the things we do together.

The work we do every day and the love that keeps us together.
