Thankful on Paper {Week 1}

"Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone."
~ G.B. Stern ~
Today, I begin participating in Thankful on Paper.  It's all about being grateful for the people in our lives who bless us....and then actually taking the time to tell them!  

Yesterday, I mailed off a letter to my sister, Kathie.  
We are sisters by birth, but friends by choice.  
She was my companion and partner-in-crime.  We drove each other crazy during our junior high and high school years, but came out on the the other side, closer than ever.  Now, she's the one I call when I need to "vent" or when I'm just in the mood to chat.  

Thanks, Kathie, for being both my sister AND my friend.

"O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; 
For His loving kindness is everlasting."
1 Chronicles 16:34 

I'm linking up at Rachel's Number 17 blog today, for Thankful on Paper.



  1. I never had a sister, but it's beautiful to hear the words "friends by choice."

  2. a sister who is a friend also is a super blessing. xo

  3. Wow. That phrase: Sisters by birth. Friends by choice. I love that. I am going to tell MY sister that. So true and what a blessing. Love your post.

  4. Oh wow. I loved this.
    I never had a sister, but always wondered what it would be like.
    Thank you for sharing!
