{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!

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.

Laurel09 said...

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.

Lynn said...

Sisterhood is always friends and lots of fun to always share.

val duffy said...

my sisters are my forever friends!

BeeSewSweet said...

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!

Susan said...

oh how wonderful! I love my sister and I'm so glad I have two beautiful girls that are even closer in age then my sister and I. I hope they are even closer!

Shatzi @ Love and Laundry said...

Awww. What a cute movie! My daughter would love this!!! I have 2 sisters and I loved staying up late at night giggling with them growing up. I don't live close to either of them and I miss them dearly. I so wish my daughter had a sister!

Alison said...

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!

Dear Emmeline said...

Sisterhood is precious. An instant connection and bond. Shared memories, secret languages. Picking up right where you left off.

My daughter down't have a sister but she has a brother who I hope she will be close with and she loves TINKERBELL! I would love to surprise her with this DVD!

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.

Mindelicious said...

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.

Lindsay said...

Sisterhood means always having a friend, no matter what.

Liz said...

my sister is my friend who loves me unconditionally and listens to my worst thoughts and makes me want to be a better person!

my two daughters are in the ages where i hope and pray they have the bond my sister and i have someday!

Briana Richardson said...

I love my sisters and I love that my daughters have sisters!

Elisa said...

I have 2 sisters and 4 SILs and I think there is such a special bond among the gals. I keep hoping someday soon my 2 girlies will figure out what a JOY it is to have a sister...

mmalavec said...

I have one sister, and I always remember saying to each other "Sisters from the very start, friends forever from the heart". We go through ups and downs, but she is my forever friend.

Sisterhood means being there for your sister always, no exceptions. It means being a sound board or a shoulder to cry on, and celebrating with her through the wonderful things as well!

Sisterhood means being there through thick and thin, doling out advices (whether I want them or not!) unconditional love and unwavering help. I have an amazing bond with my 2 older sisters and hope that my 2 girls will one day too!

Finamoon said...

I grew up with two younger sisters no brothers so sisterhood was special. I love watching my two daughters have a strong bond of sisterhood together. It is so beautiful! Sisterhood means being there for each other and having that special bond with one another.

Sisterhood is finding a soulmate and best friend wrapped up together from birth ( yours or hers, who ever is born second)

Angie James said...

Sisterhood is having someone there when you need it the most. I have several women in my life who have showed me the meaning of sisterhood. When I have needed them they have been there,

Sisterhood is having someone who keeps your secrets, helps you when you need and knows you better than anyone else. I love my sister unconditionally, I am my sister's keeper.

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.

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.

Christine said...

Sisterhood means a forever friend.

Michelle J. said...

Sisterhood is looking out for each other, especially when you no longer live under the same roof!

Karen O said...

My sisters are my friends. Especially my sisters in Christ. You can count on them to love you no matter what!

Tammy Northrup said...

Sisterhood is not necesarilly formed with blood. I have met many wonderful people who I consider family who I do not share parents with.

I have two sisters who are both awesome. I think sisterhood lets us just relax when we're with each other and feel comfortable being ourselves.

Sisterhood is the unconditional love and support you are given by your closest friends or relatives. I do not have sisters, but have always called my 2 cousins my sisters! We are always there for each other no matter what!
