Giveaway: Celebrate Sisters
We recently got an advance copy of a new Disney movie for little girls called “Secret Of The Wings.” This movie features Tinker Bell and a whole multi-ethnic cast of fairies on an adventure to the mysterious Winter Woods. In the movie Tinker Bell discovers she has a sister and goes through quite a few adventures before finding a way for them to be together.
I was pretty sure my 7 year old would enjoy this movie, but I wondered if our 10 year old might be a bit too old for it. No worries. They both adored it– they have actually asked to watch it twice in the last three days. And frankly, I thought it was fun too.
The music is fun, the story is entertaining for the target audience, and the main message focuses on the importance of sisters. I have to admit it took me years to really appreciate my sisters — and I have five of them! Growing up I was fairly close to my brother, and I usually enjoyed my very youngest sisters.
But I didn’t always get along well with the ones who were closer to me in age. Too much competition, maybe. They were always eager to be involved in my life, but I was always wishing for my own space. I suspect I wasn’t an especially good sister. Once we became adults, though, things changed and we became more able to be friends in an adult way.
Especially now that most of my sisters are mothers, we seem to find plenty to talk about. Each of my sisters enriches my life in her own way, and I’m so glad to have each and every one.One ‘sisterhood’ that’s really blessed my life lately is that of my adult daughters experiencing motherhood together for the first time. They’ve always been close, but having this all-consuming passion in common now gives them so much to talk about. It’s really a delight to see. Motherhood is a hard job, and I’m so glad they have each other.
Disney is offering a “Secret of the Wings” DVD/Blue-ray™ Double Pack for a giveaway. To enter the drawing for a chance to win, comment below and tell me what sisterhood means to you. Maybe it’s an important relationship with a sister in your own family. Maybe in your life your closest ‘sister’ is actually a very close friend. What does sisterhood look like in your own life? How do those relationships sustain you? ~~~~~~~~
