Happy Birthday Jessica!

There is no Friend like a Sister

There's no better friend than a sister -
There's no one more loyal and true . . .
and even when sisters are different . . .
their likeness come shining through!

Perhaps it's a family resemblance
that strengthens the bond they share . . .
or maybe it's just that sisters live life with a similar flair!
A sister remembers your collegehood -
She knows more than you will admit
of times you were Little Miss Perfect . . .
and times you gave others a fit!
She's seen you in some situations
when silence just wouldn't suffice . . .
and managed somehow to get by with those sisterly words of advice!

And when some encouragement's needed . . .
a sister will always be there . . .
to listen . . .
to laugh . . .
or to lean on . . .
to comfort, or simply to care.

There's no one who's more in your corner . . .
and no one you're more grateful to.
There's no better friend than a sister . . .
and no better sister than you.

  6. That is a beautiful birthday card from her big sis. I love the pictures; they bring back great memories of two sweet, fun loving little girls.
    The black and white picture is very stylish. It looks like a stock studio photo from an old movie classic. Jess is the star of the movie, of course. Did you take the picture?

  7. jeanne ~ I love the black and white of her too. I thought the very same thing!

    I did not take the picture of her. A friend of hers did. You should see the others that she took.
