And that one thing is having a sister.
In my line of work (Labor and Delivery nurse, for those of you who don't know me), the bond between sisters is never more apparent than when a new mama is being loved on and supported by her sisters. It's amazing...and it makes me wistful for that bond.
That bond that I get to witness forming between my daughters.
BlogHer and Disney provided me with a copy of the new Tinker Bell movie, "The Secret of the Wings" to screen. As it turns out, Belle was sick and home from school on the very day the disc arrived...imagine my delight as we snuggled in to watch a movie about the bond of sisters with my two favorite girls in the whole world.
In the movie, Tink discovers a sister that she never knew she had. They find an immediate bond, find out they were "born of the same laughter", work together to solve a catastrophe, and in the end, the "secret of the wings" heals what was believed to be an "unfixable" problem.
Seriously, an incredibly cute movie.
Belle, her baby sister, and I all snuggled in to watch this movie and they (yes, even the 11 year old!) were immediately captivated by story and Disney's renown gorgeous animation! (PS...fun fact, Ken Paves, he of Jessica Simpson hair?, he was the "stylist" for Tink's sister Periwinkle! Sheesh, even cartoon girls get the star treatment!)
Anyway, the moment was not lost on me as I sat with my girls...sisters. It made me realize that they, MY GIRLS, will have what I've always wanted...that unbreakable bond, that knowing without saying bond, that closer than imaginable bond that sisters have.
That bond that I get a taste of with a few of my closest girlfriends. I consider them my "sisters by choice" and while we don't have that connection of sharing parents, we do have a connection of shared hearts. Of dropping it all to help the other. Of knowing what the other is thinking without having to speak a word.
And for them, I will remain incredibly grateful to even get the tiniest little taste of what it's like to share a sisterly bond.
Tell me what sisterhood means to you, and you'll be entered to win a “Flitterific Fairies Blue-ray™ Double Pack” (Blue-ray/DVD combo)!
