Today's post is about my siblings... which for me is one sister.
I'm 3 years older than my sister & we are about as different as two sisters could be! She's petite and brunette, I'm "big-boned" and blonde.
|This was before either of us had any fashion sense... obviously:)|
|My first day of Kindergarten. You can tell she was excited for her big sister:)|
(Is it just me or do I look like I'm dressed to go to work? Guess it was probably cute back then!)
|My baby sister getting married in June 2010.|
This winter she's making me an Aunt to a little girl. I can't wait until we show her the ropes of Barbies, playing house, putting on makeup, dating boys, and all the drama that little girls experience growing up.
There is no bond like the one of two sisters. We can hate each other one minute, and the next minute be talking about our plans for the weekend like nothing happened. Forgiveness, understanding, compassion is crucial. Girls can be cruel and downright nasty... that is no exception for sisters. (Just ask our parents) But when I look back on my childhood I see her, through the good, the bad and the ugly she's always been my sister. That's a blessing I need to remind myself of a little more often. We are far from perfect, but I've come to realize no relationship is. So I love my sister for all we've been through, all we've overcome, and the years ahead of us that I know will present challenges. She's the only sister I have, so I'm going to love her with all I can.
