:) Sisters...

Can all the facets "sisters" be defined in words?

Probably not...  These lovely ladies are my sisters, sisters-in-law, and me. 
In our family we are collectively known as "The Aunts."  

How blessed I am to be a part of this group!

I'm showing my sisters today because of a poem by Margaret Bednar.  She took a painting that I had submitted to a challenge for In the Moment and wrote the loveliest poem about sisters.  I love this poem on so many levels.  Enjoy!

Hand in Hand

Fingers clasped, palms together
Made of the same sweet design
We can face all kinds of weather

Special gift to one another
You are dear, sister of mine
Fingers clasped, palms together

Some call you "little mother"
My eyes simply see "divine"
We can face all kinds of weather

You encourage constant blather
And offer a safe lead line
Fingers clasped, palms together

I can be quite a bother
From your lips never a whine
We can face all kinds of weather

Protector like no other
Our hearts will always intertwine
Fingers clasped, palms together
We can face all kinds of weather

by Margaret Bednar

This is the painting, "Hand in Hand," that made Margaret want to write her poem.
It can be purchased in several forms.
