Today I am thankful for sisters. When my mom died a few years ago, the only people who really understood what I was going through were my sisters, because they were going through it too. My sisters have always been there for me. They are a good bit older than me, 13 and 17 years, so I have always benefited from their wisdom and coolness. They also taught me how to stand up for myself and not let what others think bother me. They are two very independent women who have been through a lot, and are stronger because of it. Today my one sister, her husband, my niece, and my niece-in-law came to spend the day with us, and it was wonderful. I got to hear about everything going on with them, we got to share lots of cool stuff Howard has been doing recently, and we all really just got to enjoy being in each others company, which is always nice. So, today I am thankful for my sisters, and everything they have taught me.
