This morning I heard a news story about a BYU study that showed sisters are less likely to suffer from depression because of their ability to talk out life's problems with each other. I have thought off and on about this and have been having a bit of a hard time not feeling jealous of women who have sisters.
I have no sisters. And though I have always wanted one, I have never been thus blessed.
I thought when I was younger and unmarried that maybe someday I would have sisters-in-law who might be able to fill those empty shoes. But alas, that was not to be. I have four sisters-in-law, three of which live out of state. And the remaining one is not at all social. I have seen none of these four SILs more than twice yet this year.
So, tonight I sit here a bit lonely and (yet again) wishing I had a sister.
If you are so lucky as to be blessed with a sister, say a prayer of thanks for her tonight.
