Our family was blessed with twins :o)
Janice and Janet, that is!
(I always say Janice and Janet because Janice is older. But Janet is on the left in the picture and Janice is on the right. Janet is our Dane and Janice is our Greek)
Many of you know Janet due to her blog comments...and her newish blog.
Janice is a wonderful mother of two and working hard to support her family.
She doesn't have time to blog.
They are both so adored by our whole family. (They happen to be our babies :o)
How about sending Janice good thoughts today on her birthday...
And for Janet, she has a special wish.
She would love a boat load of comments for her birthday!
So drop by Just Janet and say "Happy Birthday" to her!
That's all it will take to put a big smile on her face!
I would love for her to receive 40 comments and will work to that end. he he he
Children of the same family, the same blood, with the same first associations and habits, have some means of enjoyment in their power, which no subsequent connections can supply... ~Jane Austen, Mansfield Park, 1814
What's the good of news if you haven't a sister to share it? ~Jenny DeVries
To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. ~Clara Ortega
An older sister helps one remain half child, half woman. ~Author Unknown
(man, is that true!)
Sibling relationships - and 80 percent of Americans have at least one - outlast marriages, survive the death of parents, resurface after quarrels that would sink any friendship. They flourish in a thousand incarnations of closeness and distance, warmth, loyalty and distrust. ~Erica E. Goode, "The Secret World of Siblings," U.S. News & World Report, 10 January 1994
(no distrust here, really)
Makes me all teary to think about how much I love my sisters.
Randi has a Monday assignment for the rest of us.
Show a high school picture of yourself.
That's me in the middle.
A few weeks away from 16.
It's been a long time since I had a tan like that! Or a skirt like that :o)
The twins were seven at the time of this picture.
And we were to lose our parents in a few weeks.
'Photographs and memories....'
Encourage one another,
And don't forget to wish Janet a Happy Day!!!
