One summer while traveling home from Yellowstone my older sister & my youngest sister & I ver fighting in the car. My dad decided in order for us all to survive the 5 hour drive home he needed to be creative. He pulled over to the side of the road & told us to get out of the car & run to the bottom of the hill & back up 3 times. It was raining outside & we thought for sure this was a huge joke. He was serious. We were a bit shocked & got out of the car & began our punishment & by the time we were at the bottom of the hill we were laughing.
I share that story because I feel so often with my sisters that when things are rough we worry & rally together to help & bond together & there is great joy at the end. When this picture was taken though it was about 6 months after my brother had passed. All of us girls withdrew from each other at a time that we needed each other so badly. It took me a very long time to realize the gift that my sisters were in my life and that the saying "Time heals all pain" is so not true. No mater how much time passes it doesn't take the pain with it. It should be "The Attonement heals all pain" & yours sisters will help you through it. As I reflect on each of my sisters & their strength I am in awe. I am so blessed to have each of my unique sisters & the memories that we share.
