Sisters are angels that God sent to be beside us through thick and thin – Author Unknown
I can’t imagine what my life would be without my sisters. I have two of them and they both mean different things to me. My middle sister was my best friend growing up (we are 15 months apart). We choose to share a room and do everything together. So much so, that often times people mistook us for twins! Whenever, I needed a playmate, a confident or sidekick, she was always there. With me as the brains and her as the brawn, we could tackle anything!
My younger sister was 6 years younger then me. I grew acting as her protector and supervisor and it wasn’t until she became an adult that our relationship changed. Now we are best friend. We rely on each for advice, support and a good laugh. Even though she lives far away, the moment we are in the same room, it is like we were never apart!
Although our relationships have gone through rocky moments and dreadful fights, I know I can always count on my sisters.

I am a huge fan of “made for TV” movies, especially at Christmas time, so I wasn’t surprised to enjoy this movie. It was an entertaining, old fashion family story with a predictable, but happy ending. It is a movie that can be shared with all ages due to its clean and family friendly themes. The fact that Kate and Melanie are real-life sisters enhances their roles and makes their relationship more realistic. The incorporation of country music into the plot is an added bonus as two of the main characters are two of my favourite country singers. The storyline, although predictable and corny at times, is entertaining and draws the viewer in until the end.
“Coming Home for Christmas” reminds us of the importance of family. It reminds us that no matter what the divisions, difficulties, or different points of view we have, it is never too late for a family to reconcile. I hope this movie mends the wounded hearts out there and leads them home with the power of love. If you’re looking for a family-friendly Christmas movie this holiday season, grab a bowl of popcorn and watch “Coming home for Christmas”.
We give this movie 3 out 5 hearts!
