sisters are we

The older I get, the more I understand just how incredibly BLESSED I am by my beautiful family. I know that I have always been told what a wonderful family I have, and I have always had somewhat of an understanding of that, but as the years pass by and I come into contact with more families and I search out how I want to raise MY family...I have gained a better grasp on how truly blessed I am. My sisters are a huge part of my life. They are each unique, bringing something different into my life and I have such a special relationship with each of them. I love how we all treat each other with respect. I love that we honor who we are and that we seek to understand our differences. I love that we can come together and laugh. I love looking towards the future with my sisters and remembering our pasts. I love that they have always been there for me. I love that we don't always get along...but that it doesn't last long. My sisters have always been a part of my life...but now I consider them my very best friends. Even though we are all different ages, we respect one another and know that every life can offer guidance, wisdom, and love. Thank you my sisters for a wonderful weekend together. It was great to be "just the girls" (plus a few babies). Our sisterhood is a real treasure! I love you!

You ladies really are lucky. People do not believe me when I mention all of you. All 5 of you are such different women, yet share the same amazingly strong characteristics of love, faith, friendship and family. It is a blessing to know the Turgesen clan!

These pictures make me teary! It means so much to me, as your Mamacita, that you get to have these sister times and that you have a bond between you that shows so much love and strength.

No matter what, you have one another. That is a lot.
I love you!
