Mosaic Monday ~ Sisters

Happy Birthday to My Dear Sister!

The birthday girl is the pretty blond
I have always looked up to and loved my big sister!
I think this will always be one of my all time favorite pictures!

There is no better friend than a sister. And there is no better sister than you.

A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.

Marion C. Garretty

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

There can be no situation in life in which the conversation of my dear sister will not administer some comfort to me.

Mary Montagu


How do people make it through life without a sister?

Sara Corpening


Sisters are different flowers from the same garden.

Author Unknown

In the cookies of life, sisters are the chocolate chips.

Author Unknown

A sister is a forever friend.

Author Unknown

Sisters function as safety nets in a chaotic world simply by being there for each other.

Carol Saline

Sweet is the voice of a sister in the season of sorrow.

Benjamin Disraeli

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 is a friend and defender - a listener, conspirator, a counsellor and a sharer of delights. And sorrows too.

Pam Brown

Our brothers and sisters are there with us from the dawn of our personal stories to the inevitable dusk.

Susan Scarf Merrell

Sisters share the scent and smells - the feel of a common childhood.

Pam Brown

A sister shares childhood memories and grown-up dreams.

Author Unknown

Sisters are blossoms in the garden of life.

Author Unknown

We may look old and wise to the outside world. But to each other,

we are still in junior school.

Charlotte Gray

You keep your past by having sisters. As you get older, they're the only ones who don't get bored if you talk about your memories.

Deborah Moggach


It's hard to be responsible, adult and sensible all the time. How good it is to have a sister whose heart is as young as your own.

Pam Brown

I can't imagine a life without a sister. In my case I have an identical twin and a big sister, to boot.

Hope your sister's birthday was a grand one.
