This is the prayer I prayed as a little girl. I wanted a sister so bad. Then one day mom was going to have a baby and I changed my prayer for some reason. I asked God to send me a "beetle brother". Don't ask me why but I did and I got what I prayed for. Mom gave birth to Billy on September 19, 1965. I am glad she had him because he was a good friend to me growing up.
Well, that feeling in my heart never did go away. I still yearned for a sister. Over the years I have gotten several of them. One was when my brother married Robin. She is terrific. Others came when I started blogging. Still more came from friends at work and church. I have been truly blessed with many sisters of the heart.
