I stumbled across Bonnie Hitchcock’s post about her sister through a comment she made on another author’s blog. A word of encouragement she said to my friend motivated me to check out this lady and her own blog.
I was so glad I did. Between precious posts about her family and wonderful photos of the treasures she finds and sells, I came upon this beautiful post about Bonnie and her sister, Beverli. I knew that I wanted to share it with you as part of my All Things Sisters Series.
With her permission and blessing, here’s what Bonnie shared on her website, White Lace and Promises.

Thank you, Bonnie, for sharing your heart, AND your sister, with us today. Bonnie has also written several posts about the other precious people in her life. Check out her most recent one: Who Am I?
