"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

Perfect Moment Monday: Sisterhood

Lori over at Weebles Wobblog says that "Perfect Moment Monday is more about noticing a perfect moment than about creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between."

I am truly blessed with a fabulous family. Like all families, we have our issues but we truly love each other and go out of our way to be there for each other. This weekend, my oldest niece turned 13. With the exception of my hubby and my baby sister's hubby, we were all there to celebrate. Despite teh awful heat, we had a great time at a local park on Friday...swimming, picnicking, feeding geese. Then on Saturday, after teh birthday celebration and thanks to the generosity of my parents (thanks Mom and Dad), the boys and I joined the birthday girl and her whole family at Carowinds. We spent the whole time in the water park portion (it was too hot for anything else) and Gabe insisted on being in the big wave pool, not the small one. It was so much fun spending all this happy time with my family. I love you you all.

Then, when I got home, I found this wonderful surprise from my bestest bud and sister by choice, Jennifer (Please, please click on them and read it. They will open in another window.)...
I think the reason it means so very much to me is that Jennifer and I have known each other for over 25 years. We don't have to prove our friendship to each other. I love you sister.

Go check out the other perfect moments at this week's Perfect Moment Monday on Weebles Wobblog.

I'm sure you receive such sentiment because you give such sentiment.

Perfect!

I really, really wish I had a sister. Always wanted one.

I was listening to a lecture series this morning where he was talking about how you get back from the world what you put into the world.

I agree with Luz: "You receive such sentiment because you give such sentiment."

Thanks for sharing your Perfect Moment!

Aw, that is so sweet. Truly a perfect moment!

Sisters of choice. I like that term. I have two sisters of choice. They keep me sane and are wonderful. You're right, there is no proving your friendship to a sister of choice.
