National Nurse Appreciation Week 2022

Once upon a time, I had big dreams of becoming a writer. I remember daydreaming (mostly in my high school algebra and geometry classes) about the day that Life Magazine would publish one of my stories and I would be set. The magazine was going to whisk me off to far-away lands to write stories about interesting people and events that would be historical.

The bond between sisters is unlike anything else. They play together. They fight. They “borrow” each other’s clothes and hairbrushes.

Books and movies like Little Women and My Sister’s Keeper are written and brought to the big screen to explore this one-of-a-kind bond. It is a complex and fascinating friendship—one in which there is indeed struggle, but also the knowledge that you never have to stand alone.
