If there is one thing I know for sure,
is that we can't do it alone.
I have read hundreds of books and 
spent hours taking classes about how
we can train our brain to attract exactly what we want
out of life.
And yes, we do create what we focus on,
I don't argue with that.

But after all those books and all those classes,
I know one thing for darn sure.
We can't do it alone.
We weren't meant to do it alone.

And no matter how pure our thoughts are..
there will come a time when God in
his love will hold us over the fire and 
smooth us out...
in a way that only he can.

I have also learned that the only thing that really
impresses the way we love them.
all the accolades and accomplishments in 
the universe only impress if you use them
to strengthen and uplift the people 
in your life.

Today I thank God for sisters.
Perhaps I should say sister in laws...
but nope.
They are my sisters
and they have been there for me through thick
and thin.
They come to me almost daily...
do my wash, my dishes,
lay in bed with me and share their thoughts,
they love my children and invest their time in my children.

We had a silly day last week, because I told them
I wanted pictures of us together...
small photographer,
so we took a million pics ourselves,
this is one of the few that turned out:)

It takes a brave person to stand next
to any of my sisters...
They are, as you can see, drop dead

But theirs is a beauty that comes from their
hearts.  They love pure and undiluted.
 They have shared their
stories and worries with me and
let me do the same. 
I will always love them for showing up
good times and bad.
And I want you to know
that I will always be here for you.
