{Blog Bash Giveaway} New Disney Fairy DVD: Secret of the Wings


Sisters.
I was blessed with four of them. Each sister is unique, yet we are practically the same. We tell the same jokes, wear the same clothes, hate the same foods, play the same games, love the same movies, even come from the same goofy parents.

My sisters.
I am who I am because I have sisters. I pray for each of them every single day. I talk to them on the phone. When I daydream, often they are in my memories. I miss them all (we all live so far apart).

A sister.
"A sister is a special friend." That's what I cross-stitched for my oldest sister for her birthday, probably 20 years ago. That phrase couldn't be more true. We've always been the best of friends.

Sisterhood.
Sisters are the people you can trust. They give you new ideas. They encourage you. They tell you the truth. They cry and laugh with you. We are so lucky to have such a strong bond. My sisters mean everything to me.

Silly sisters.
If we're lucky, we get together once a year. That means once a year, I get to be the person who has no reservations, I can be totally ME when I'm with THEM. When we're together, we always snatch up the moment to take a 5-sister picture.

Sister-in-law.
She started out as a friend, and I was so lucky the day she became my sister. She's smart, and funny, and gorgeous, and the best auntie in the world!

Daughters.
I am blessed to be the mommy of two sisters. They are two years apart, and are the best of friends. They stick up for each other no matter what. They look out for each other. They play and color and sing and dance together every day. It is such a unique joy to raise a pair of sisters. They know how much my sisters mean to me. They already feel the same love and bond between each other.

Celebrating Sisterhood...
Last week, I received the best news ever. I was given the opportunity to review Disney's newest movie, "Secret of the Wings," starring Tinker Bell and her... twin sister! There was some serious jumping up and down when I told my daughters (ages 6 and 4) the exciting news. They have literally watched the preview on Pixie Hollow over and over. Its release is scheduled at the end of October. We had a Tinker Bell movie marathon over the weekend, starting with "Tinker Bell", then "The Lost Treasure", then "The Great Fairy Rescue", and ending it with "Secret of the Wings". We thought the movie was so magical. My favorite part was the beautiful music.

 At one point of the movie, our oldest daughter left her spot on the couch and snuggled up to her little sister. She took her eyes off the movie, hugged her sister, and told her how much she loves her. If only the Disney creators could have seen the moment... I'm positive that is exactly the emotion they'd love to see between two sisters, during such a sweet movie made just for them!

  1. I believe sisterhood is not a birth right. The amazign women I call my sisters did not come from my Mother, but I stand by their side and know they are there for me through good and bad.

  2. What a wonderful giveaway. I share your feelings about sisterhood. My sister is the person who can make me angry the fastest, but also who I will forgive (over and over again) the most readily, because I couldn't imagine life without her, and because I am more *me* when I am with her. I only have one daughter right now (20 months old -- and she is just starting to sit with us to watch a movie on our Sunday afternoon family movie time), but I hope that someday I can give her the gift of a sister.

  5. Sisterhood is so much more than any words could ever describe. My sister is my best friend and I could not imagine the world without her. We've been there for each other during the hardest times of our lives, knowing more than anyone else just what the other needed. I sure love my sister! Thanks for the giveaway! My sister and I and our daughters would love a cozy movie night!

  8. I have a sister, and I love our relationship. It is so much more than a friendship with another woman...we will always be connected. Plus, no one understands my crazy parents like she does!

  11. A sister is someone who can drive you so crazy at times but also knows why you are they way you are and can be 100% yourself around.

  12. Sisters are the women I love most and want most to help, want most to be happy, want most to be with. I have many sisters, some born, some found. I would wither and die without my sisters!

    I am lucky enough to have 4 daughters. Hopefully they will be like my sisters one day, too.

  43. Sisterhood to me is an ear to listen, shoulder to cry on, hugs when I need them and love. I have an older sister, When our Mother died, it made our bond stronger. We will always be sisters and I am proud to have my big Sister.

  45. I have always been very curious about sisterhood. I only have a brother, so I will never know true sisterhood, but I do have girlfriends that I know I can count and who share my values and I think that is a special kind of sisterhood.
