We Have a Sisterness About Us

When I entered the world 23 years ago I was given one of this lifetime's best gifts, sisters. I know some children beg their parents for siblings and wait patiently for them to arrive but I didn't have to. As the baby of the family the moment my life began I had built-in best friends for the rest of my life. Although Lesley isn't my sister, she might as well be. This beloved cousin experienced life right along side my sisters and I. I can't remember a time when she wasn't a part of our lives. In fact, when I think back on some of my fondest memories as a child, she is in them. As a child, the four year gap between me and the oldest seemed like an eternity. Now, with all of us in our mid twenties, the gap keeps getting smaller and smaller. Now-a-days, the four of us live in FOUR different states.
Brooke- Evansville, IN
Lesley- St. Charles, MO
Morgan- Nashville, TN
Me- Champaign, IL
It doesn't seem to matter the distance, they are some of my favorite people in the world and I turn to them for spiritual guidance and advice about life in general.
SO, this weekend the former Dudley girls + one former Cosner girl, got together in Nashville to laugh, dance, eat, and enjoy each others company.
