Regina Hill wrote the following poem. I thought was worth rewriting for all of us who have sisters. This is very beautiful and nice for all of us to remember. I am honored to call you my sister. I know that I can trust you with my most cherished treasures, with my heart and soul and with every secret I hold. I know that you will listen without criticizing me for my mistakes. You hear what I am truing to say. Even when I fail to express myself clearly, I know that I can believe you without worrying that you will mislead me because you are honest with me, even when honesty means disagreement. I know that you will accept me, despite every wrong turn I’ve made. You simply love who I am. I know that our hearts are connected on the deepest level. You know me so well; your insight and view of me make me feel so complete. I know that I am special because you are so special. I am proud of our friendship and the strength we have together. I am honored to call you my sister and fortunate to call you my friend.
