10 Undeniable Signs Your Sister Is Your 'Person'

10 Undeniable Signs Your Sister Is Your 'Person'

The bond we share is like non other experienced in life.

Everyone should have their person, whether that person is a significant other, a friend, or a family member.

Here are 10 reasons why my sister is my person (or why my sisters are my people):

1. You hang out with her allllll the time.

I mean, who wouldn't want to hang out their sister all the time? She knows every little detail about you--even the ugly ones--and still chooses to be seen with you in public on a regular basis. Score.

2. She's the first person you call up when you have some big news to spill--both good and bad.

If it's good, she's your biggest cheerleader, but if it's bad, watch out world because sister is coming fully loaded and ready to throw down.

3. When you're feeling down, she knows just how to cheer you up.

Have you seen my sisters act goofy? It's pretty hilarious. I don't think anyone could keep crying after watching them for a few hours.

4. She's your first friend.

Whether you were born first or she was, it doesn't really matter, because there is no closer relationship than one that starts at birth. You literally were one of the first people to hold her in your arms (besides your parents), it doesn't get much better than that.

5. Honesty is never an issue.

This definitely brings out the love/hate aspect of your relationship. You love her opinion because you always know she would never lie to you, but then sometimes, the truth could be handled in a much more delicate manner.

6. You play to each other's strengths.

I have three sisters and we all bring different attributes to the table. I have the tough-outdoorsy sister, the musically talented but also killer athlete sister, and the crafty fashion queen of the family. And you might be asking where I fall, well, I'm the oldest and the natural born leader of the family. So yes, we definitely have all areas of life covered.

7. She's always going to be there.

Whether you like it or not. It really doesn't matter how many times you fight, you have this special bond that allows you to forgive and forget, regardless of the damage of the crime.

8. She is an amazing support system.

Nervous for the big test coming up? Have a job interview that is totally stressing you out? You're a starter for the district finals game? You have a big dance recital coming up? Whatever the case may be, your sister will always be there to offer encouraging words or words of advice to get you through your most stressful moments.

9. She inspires you every day.

I may be the oldest, but my three younger sisters inspire me every single day to be the very best version of me.

10. No one will ever ruin the relationship you have or the bond you share.

Not even your future or current significant other. Sure the relationship may change slighlty, but your sister(s) will always continue to support, motivate, inspire, cheer you up, laugh at your stories, reminisce on the good ole days, and will never leave you.

So to my parents, thank you for blessing me with three beautiful younger sisters (and my brothers too I guess). And to my sisters, thank you for being my people, I don't know where I would be in my life without you.

Love you long time,

Your big sis.

To The Grandmothers Who Made Us The Women We Are Today

Sincerely, the loving granddaughters.

The relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter is something so uniquely special and something to be treasured forever.

Your grandma loves you like you are her own daughter and adores you no matter what. She is the first person you run to when you have a problem with your parents and she never fails to grace you with the most comforting advice.

She may be guilty of spoiling you rotten but still makes sure to stress the importance of being thankful and kind.

Your grandma has most likely lived through every obstacle that you are experiencing now as a young adult and always knows just exactly what to say.

She grew up in another generation where things were probably much harder for young women than they are today.

She is a walking example of perseverance, strength, and grace who you aim to be like someday.

Your grandma teaches you the lessons she had to learn the hard way because she does not want you to make the same mistakes she did when she was growing up.

Her hugs never fail to warm your heart, her smile never fails to make you smile, and her laugh never fails to brighten your day.

She inspires you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.

You only hope that one day you can be the mother and grandmother she was to you.

A piece of girl’s heart will forever belong to her grandma that no one could ever replace.

She is the matriarch of your family and is the glue that holds you all together.

Grandmothers play such an important role in helping their granddaughters to grow into strong, intelligent, kind women.

She teaches you how to love and how to forgive.

Without the unconditional love of your grandma, you would not be the woman you are today.

To all of the grandmothers out there, thank you for being you.

To The Cousin Who Is More Like My Sister, I Am So Thankful For You

Here's to a lifetime of dance parties in living rooms and conversations that light up any room that we're in.


Dear sister,

In the short six months I have gotten to know you, my mind is still blown by how fast my heart found so much joy in spending time with you. There are days where I wish that I would have gotten to know you sooner, like WAY sooner, but God's plan for our lives doesn't always match up with ours - and in this case, I think His plan worked out pretty great. And sure, we could call ourselves second cousins and dabble in all the technicalities, but what fun would that be?

We both know that "sisters" is a much better word to define this beautiful, weird, and spontaneous relationship of ours.

I think about all the beautiful gifts Jesus has given me in my life and you're pretty high up on that list. Yes, even on the days where I've called you a panini head and the times when you threaten to hang up on me on FaceTime because of how I annoy you to wit's end. Even then, I find myself so thankful that you play such a big part in my life. Ever since I was a little girl, I have always wanted a sister that I can share my love for Jesus, Indian food, (specifically, lamb curry), cute redhead boys, cliché chick flicks, and worship music. And now here you are. Sometimes I'm still in shock that Jesus has been so good to me that He would bring you into my life, but He's just that good and is just that faithful to His promises - and you can hold on to that truth for the rest of your life.

I hope you know that whenever you like a boy you can tell me and we can talk about how boys are the absolute WORST and then proceed to talk about how Jesus is WAY better, and then end with scrolling through pictures of our celebrity crushes.

I hope you never get tired of being goofy because that is most definitely one of my favorite things about you. You bring out the goofy side of me and It's the most fun. It reminds me that confidence can be found in being yourself- which sometimes means you just need to break out into a singing and dancing session in your bedroom. I hope you never lose your wonder of getting to know Jesus personally and wanting to pursue a life of chasing after Him because that is the number one thing that will get you through your teenage years. I promise you that.

On the days where you feel so incredibly overwhelmed by all that life is I hope you know that I am always for you. I will always pick up the phone to pray for you, and I will always listen to your rants.

I hope that we are for each other just as much as our moms are for each other. I hope that one day we sit in the kitchen laughing and sharing stories from our time together just like our moms do now.

I hope you never doubt your worth and always appreciate your culture, wearing your Indian dresses with pride because you know that your ethnicity is a beautiful part of who you are and what your story is. Because sister, if there is a life lesson you should learn right now it's that when you walk through life with confidence in who you are it's pretty dang hard for anyone to tell you otherwise. And I hope that no one ever does. I hope you continue to walk through life with your head held high because you know who you are and you are proud of it.

I hope you find joy in the mundane of life because seeking joy in the routine of your every day is what gets you through the hardest of days. I hope you know that joy will be your strength, no matter how old you get. And that finding joy can range from sharing a night of laughter with your family to getting chick fil a one the days you crave it the most (every day).

Even though we don't live in the same state, one of my favorite things is to have our weekly FaceTime calls that usually consist of an outburst of dancing, sharing stories from our life, doing yoga, or having a study session, which..more often than not is interrupted by your brothers walking in or a dance session breaking out.

Sweet friend, It has been such a joy to know you, to see who you are, what you're passionate about, and to already watch you grow into the amazing young woman that you're becoming. I can't wait to cheer you on in every big moment that happens in your life. From when you get your license (yikes, I know) to when you become a Doctor (yes, you will be). I can't wait to watch you grow in confidence and courage and boldness. You are going to be a great leader, someone who selflessly serves others, and someone who treats others like Jesus would treat them.

Sister, I hope you never get sick of calling me sister, because it makes my heart glad to know that we share that type of bond. I hope that whenever you have a day that makes even the smallest things terrible, that you can read this and feel a small ounce of joy in knowing that this is a relationship that will last a lifetime. I pray for you to always know your worth, know that you are loved beyond all measures, and to know that you are and will be resilient in any circumstance that comes your way.

So sister here's to a lifetime of laughing so hard we cry, crying so hard we laugh, and dancing around in the living room because we have so much joy in our hearts - no matter what life throws at us.

Here's too more late night talks in the guest room with the warm lamp lights and more back popping sessions on the living room floor. Here's to a lifetime of joy, adventures, and stories. I can't wait to walk through so much more life with you. I love you.
