The Story of Two Very Different Sisters


I got this from my sister Rachael today in the mail, it says a lot about the two of us, Hope you like as much as I do


The Story of Two Very Different Sisters

One is here, one lives there.

One is a little taller than the other.

Two different colours of hair,

Two different outlooks on life,

Two very different views from their windows.

Both have different tomorrows ahead.

Each is unique in so many ways.

Each has her own story, with all the busy things going on in the present.

Each has different work to do, and different demands on the day.

Each has a separate destination and a distinctly different path to get there.


For all the things that might be different and unique about them ...

These two sisters will always share so much.

They will always be the best of family and friends, entwined together, through all the days of their lives.

Their love will always be very special; gentle and joyful when it can be, strong and giving when it needs to be,

Reminding them no matter how different their stories turn out...

They share the incredibly precious gift of being “sisters”.

And when you think of some of the best things this world has to offer, a blessing like that is really... what it’s all about.
