"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

SHOW AND TELL: The O'Donnell Girls

I was having such a hard time figuring out what I wanted to share this week. So, I decided to flip through my pictures, hoping inspiration would strike. I kept coming back to family and how damned lucky I am to have the family I have. My parents and my sisters are wonderful, caring, loving, brilliant people and I love them with all my heart. There are also moments when they drive me bat-shit crazy and I am 100% certain that I have the same effect on them. But, when push comes to shove, my family will band together and we can and will take down anyone that tries to hurt one of us. I am blessed. Despite the many trials life can throw at you, my parents have been married almost 42 yrs and each of my sisters and I have found and married a wonderful man. I'm the oldest and Vic and I have been married for almost 14 1/2 yrs.



My sister Keri is the middle sis. She has been married for the shortest period of time. Her husband, John, is a wonderful man and he has been a fantastic dad to her two daughters.



Becky is the youngest. She and her husband Trevor have been married for almost 5 yrs and my kids adore them.



We are all so very different. We have different interests, different musical tastes, and a wide variety of political views. Yet, in the things that are truly important, our love for and trust in each other, we are all the same. I have two of the most incredible women in this world as my sisters and I just wanted to share them with you.

To see what everyone else in class is bringing to SHOW AND TELL, take a trip to visit the Miss Mel, Goddess of the Infertility Blogosphere.

Oh Kristin - what lovely pictures. Just seeing how your family connects through pics is really touching.

Sisters are a bond that I will never get. I'm trying!!! But, I just watch and marvel.

What a lovely photos!

My husband and I have been married just a little longer than you. (I could tell by the style of your dress, I think mine had the same sleeves.)

Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful photos.

I love that you're close even though you're all so different. Didn't work out that way with my sister. Although, I blame my mother for pitting us against each other.
