My Sisters

My Sisters I have three sisters, it used to be four, but one is not here anymore. We were not raised together, so we all lived different lives. we are all different in our ways. My sister Dora lives up North. She had seven kids. She is now a widow, but with her kids and grand kids - she seems to have her life complete. My sister Gloria was a secretary, dhe never once got married. She said she didn't want to push a carriage. she was happy the way she lived. She is not with us anymore. Another sister lives close by. It's just about an hour's drive. Her name is Mary. A wonderful husband she did find. They raised a family of five, one boy and four girls. One more sister I do have for many years we didn't know where she was at. Estella is my sisters's name. We searched for her, but was in vain. Until 2007, she was found. We all got together to celebrate. Those are my sisters and now it's my turn. What can I tell you about by self - I am the one that wrote this poem. I am the oldest of all the girls. I am happy that we finally met. some families are lost forever, but I'm glad that I found mine.....

    - I'm glad you found each other and having a good family / sisters and brothers. - It was nice to read your brother / sister poem Lucilla! - I have a sister who is two years older than me. - She has moved so far away in the country after my mother died, she would not be taking care of our father who is now left alone. - He has cancer, lung problems, diabetes and lost his balance after cancer / cell therapy - must use a wheelchair. (my "happy family") - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)
