We are Family, I Got All My Sisters With Me

Aren’t girlfriends the sisters that we choose? After a fun-filled vacation with my girlfriends and our family members, I felt extremely grateful of all of the people in my life and all of the time I was able to savor with what I think of as my extended family. My girlfriends are like my sisters, and their family members, I also consider my family members as well. Although a few of my sisters were missing from the trip, I know they were there in spirit. On our, what seemed like a very short, trip together, we were able to eat, shop, and talk together. We shared rooms, stories, and experiences of a lifetime. We participated in water sports, laid out on the beach, enjoyed happy hour at sunset, walked around Boracay’s Zone One, and sang karaoke until we were falling asleep from exhaustion. No matter what the activity, the most important part of it all was the love we felt for one another and the simple joy of being together. Despite everything that we’ve been through with one another though out the years, we have always found time and ways to make each other feel important and despite the amount of time between seeing one another, we have always picked up where we left off.

Savoring My Sisters From Another Mother (And Father)

Doesn’t it seem like there certain people in this world who we are destined to meet and then can’t live without? There are people who touch our lives and who add so much meaning and positivity to it that we cant help but feel humbled and appreciative of their kindness and friendship. Today, February 28th, just so happens to be the birthdays of two of those special people who are so so dear to me, Dreams and Rache. Growing up, I always wished I had a sister, and in my life I have been blessed to have girlfriends who have become like the sisters I never had and who I consider part of my family. Coincidentally, two of the most wonderful, beautiful, and fun-loving girls I know were born on the same day, but it can’t be a coincidence that they’re both in my life.

Dreams is the most determined, hard working, considerate and easy going girl I know. She is one of the few persons who would accompany me to concerts without knowing the performers or hearing any of their music. She is also the only person I know who, in spite of her fears, is down to participate in life adventures with me (even if the consequence meant throwing up after each activity). From para-sailing, sky diving, scuba diving with sharks, night diving, and the list goes on, we’ve shared so many experiences together that in themselves are unforgettable, but are more memorable because I was able to do them with one of my most favorite persons in the whole entire world. My life wouldn’t be the same without her.

Rache is the most resilient, sweet, honest, and thoughtful girl any one can ever meet. She knows adversity like no one’s business, but despite what life throws her way, she remains strong and positive. I can always go to her for truthful advice and whether it’s going to a show, eating together, or playing with the babies (doggies), she is a joy to be around.

It isn’t ever day that we meet people that we want to get to know. It’s even more rare when friendships are maintained and worked on, and it’s pretty extraordinary when friendships grow deeper as time passes by. These extraordinary relationships should forever be savored and cherished. I have become a better person because of my sisters from another mother (and father) who are such motivational and inspirational factors in my life and who have brought me so much happiness knowing that our friendships are mutually cared for and appreciated.

To my gorgeous sisters Dreams and Rache, from the bottom of my heart, I wish you both the happiest birthdays ever and anything and everything your hearts desire today and always. I love you girls more than words can say.
