Shannon is one of my best friends. She is beautiful both inside and out. We hang out on a regular basis. Each time we are out somewhere, someone will ask if we are sisters (they must not know I’m an only child). When we first started being asked, we thought the rest of Louisville was on some drug. (Although a compliment) I think I look nothing like her. She thinks she looks nothing like me. At her graduation in May, her Aunt came up to me and said, “If I didn’t know you weren’t related to us, I would have thought you were related to us!!” WOW, that’s a serious statement.
Although unplanned, she and I showed up to an event recently wearing the same colors. Looking at the picture I can now see some resemblance. I think we both exude the same type of glow and both have loving and giving spirits. We laugh and pray together in church, we likes to “Rock Ya Hips” all around Louisville (more her than me!), we share joys/pains and man issues, and she is there when I need her. The dictionary defines sister as: a woman who shares a common ancestry, allegiance, character, or purpose with another or others. So, YES, I can guess I can say that Shannon is my sister!
