Is it true? Is a picture worth a thousand words?

Here is a picture I cherish. This was taken nearly 20 years ago: my sister and my youngest son.

Here's what I love about it:

Isn't my baby beautiful? Even at a few days old, he scrunched up his face like that when he was kissed. It was so damn cute. Look at that miniscule hand and the feathery eyebrows.

Isn't my sister beautiful? I love the tenderness in her gesture. She only just met this sweet, tiny little person and loved him instantly. The light shining on her fair hair is gorgeous and the blush of her cheek is so fetching. She always has been a beauty, and not just because she looks the way she does.

It's only a fleeting moment in the whirlwind of a child. He was new and fresh and smelled so wonderful, wrapped safely in the arms of one of the few people on earth who would love him always, no matter what: his Auntie.

Sisters are treasures. Have you hugged your sister today?



  1. This post and picture is so beautiful! I love the tenderness that it projects and the lighting is amazing. Almost heavenly. I will be hugging my sisters virtually today and thank you for the reminder.

  2. Yikes, totally estranged from my sister. Long story.
    But I am always so glad to hear about sisters who aren't. (-:
    PS: What a cute pic.

  3. I don't have a sister....but I always wanted one! Lovely picture. Lovely writing.

  4. Beautiful picture, Trish. I adore my sister, though we are miles apart, and hug her virtually every day!

  5. Oh, love this!

    My sister is my best friend. I can't imagine life without her. I love watching her with my son too (and I have tons of pictures of them together, probably more than me and him together).

  6. Very sweet :) This makes me wish that I had a sister!

  7. This picture is so adorable! We're in the midst of wedding planning for my sister right now, so it's a bit of a love/hate relationship! Today I do love her more then hate, but that's subject to change on any given moment/phone call!

  8. What a beautiful, touching photo. It's rare to capture moments like that. How wonderful to be able to look back on that

  9. This is a lovely picture. Something to cherish always, much like your relationship with your sister. Thank you for sharing.

  10. I hug mine all the time. I feel lucky that way. Great post
