Mothers, Daughters, and Sisters

Otherwise known as . . .

“The Girls”

My mom, Donna, and my sister, Erika. We are all SO completely different, but SO completely alike, too. I am blessed to have these two women in my life, and I treasure them every day. I found some fun quotes for them, too.
Of two sisters one is always the watcher, one the dancer.
~Louise Glück
(Can you guess which of us was the watcher & which was the dancer?)

She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she’s the reason you wish you were an only child.
~Barbara Alpert

And mothers are their daughters’ role model, their biological and emotional road map, the arbiter of all their relationships.
~Victoria Secunda
(We had the best role model ever!)

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.
~Sophia Loren

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
~Washington Irving
