Thank you for coming here for we do love to tell our story.

After sharing it with others, the most common comment we hear is

"Well, you two need to go on the Oprah Show".

Thats why we call it our "Oprah Story"

 

 

I know you're wondering just what our "story" is, but let me begin

by saying this about one of my favorite scriptures from The Bible.

Ecclesiastes, Chapter 3 tells us that there is A time for everything

under the sun. I think that you know as well as I do that

God's timing always turns out to be perfect. Two years ago

he again proved this to me.

 

 

Two years ago, my sister and I met for the very first time in our lives.

Both she and I were in our 50s.

I guess by now you are thinking that during this day and age, its

really nothing unusual because we hear of things like that most every day.

 

 

In order not to bore you with A lot of text, we would like to

tell our story with pictures and words. But before we go on, let us say

that without the internet, our meeting may have never happend.

 

 

 

Our First Hug

July 8,1998

After chatting over the

internet since April 30, 1998

We were finally able to meet.

Picture, taken by A staff member of

The Chardan Motel, Gatlinburg Tennessee

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prior to our first meeting, we had chatted via ICQ almost daily

and had discoverd the many things we have in common as Brother and Sister.

Since that beautiful Day in Gatlinburg

we have spent many wonderful hours

together and our spouses have

become the Best of Friends

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Words alone cannot express the contentment and joy that now lives

in our hearts. From that very first week we talked via the internet, we both

felt that special bond and love that can only be known between

A Loving Brother and Sister. As time has gone on, we've found

so many things we have in common including not only those given

by heredity, but also personal values.

 

 

At the time of our meeting, we lived several hours A part.

Since then, due to Steve's Job transfer, we now live only two hours

from each other. Needless to say, we do see each other on A regular

basis and call each other almost every day.

 

 

God Somehow Knew

God must have known there would be times We'd need a word of cheer Someone to praise a triumph Or brush away a tear.

He must have known we'd need to share The joy of "little things" In order to appreciate The happiness life brings.

I think He knew our troubled hearts Would sometimes throb with pain At trials and misfortunes Or some goals we can't attain.

He knew we'd need the comfort Of an understanding heart To give us strength and courage To make a fresh, new start.

He knew we'd need companionship Unselfish...lasting...true, And so God answered my heart's great need With a Loving Sister.....Like You!

I Love You Sissy
