You’re The Best

You're The Best by the Satellite Sisters - Thoughts in ProgressA sister doesn’t necessarily have to be a blood relative to be an extra special person in your life.

YOU’RE THE BEST: A Celebration of Friendship by the Satellite Sisters explains this concept in such amazing ways. This is a wonderful book to share with those ‘sisters’ who touch your life and make it so much richer for just being in it.

In this heartwarming book, the Satellite Sisters (five real sisters) discuss the importance of our sisters and friends (women and men) who are there for us. These are those friends that are there during the good times, but especially touch our lives when we’re down and need them the most.

This collection of essays touches on the various ‘sisters’ we have in our lives. These are people we have known forever and those we’ve become close at various times in our lives, as well as those we’ve bonded with across the miles without ever having actually met.

This delightful book will have you laughing out loud as you compare the stories to your own experiences. It will tug on your heartstrings as you fondly remember those sisters you’ve lost touch with over the years, as well as those who are no longer with us.

YOU’RE THE BEST is a charming book that can be enjoyed by all ages. It touches on bad advice from good friends and funseekers vs funsuckers among so much more. It’s a humorous and entertaining look at love, life, family, play and change.

Don’t be surprised if half way through the book (or sooner) you’re reaching for the phone to connect with your Satellite Sister(s). This is a superb way to celebrate those special people in our lives that help us in so many ways even when they don’t realize they are.

FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.


The Satellite Sisters – Julie, Liz, Sheila, Monica, and Lian Dolan – are five real sisters who believe that a sense of connection is what gives meaning to our lives. The Dolans created the Satellite Sisters first as a radio show and website in 2000 and then became podcast pioneers with a devoted national fan base; they are also authors of SATELLITE SISTERS’ UNCOMMON SENSES, and sister Lian Dolan has written two bestselling novels, ELIZABETH THE FIRST WIFE and HELEN OF PASADENA.

Together they have won 13 Gracie Allen Awards for excellence in women’s media, including Talk Show of the Year, have appeared on CBS Sunday Morning, and wrote a regular column in O Magazine. YOU’RE THE BEST includes the Next Generation of Satellite Sisters – their daughters, daughters-in-law, and nieces.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Do you have a Satellite Sister in your life that has been there for you no matter what? I have and I’ve had the sheer joy of being able to visit with her and her family this month. Have you talked with your Satellite Sister lately?


  1. I consider quite a number of the people I have come across in the blogosphere to be Satellite Sisters. And I am very, very grateful to and for them.

  2. Don't want to be around the funsuckers!
    And I agree with Elephant's Child. I'm grateful for all the friends I've made here online.

  3. I think the bonds we have with the people in our lives are really important. Thanks for sharing, Mason.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
