Being the older sister is a very important position in your little sister's life. You make sure that you are living your life in a way so that they follow in your footsteps, because after all, you are their biggest role model! She is someone you can always count on to cheer you up when you are down and she's the person that will help you be a better "big" sister. Having not one, but two of God's greatest gifts is the best blessing I could have ever asked for. Having two little sisters means double the annoyance, double the best friends, and double the two I love with all of my heart. There are many reasons as to why having little sisters is the best blessing and one of God's greatest gifts.

1. She is your FOREVER best friend.

Having little sisters means a lifetime best friend. There are times where your little sisters can annoy you like crazy, but a little sister is that person who will do anything and EVERYTHING with you. Now that I have a little sister, there is my person who I want to be my Maid of Honor in my wedding, someone I can depend on to binge watch Netflix all day long, and someone to pick me up when I am feeling down. I am grateful that God has built that special person into my life. For that, I could not be more grateful.

2. You do embarrassing things together.

Anyone with sisters, in general, will understand this one. Having sisters is the best because out of all of the embarrassing things that you do, there is always no judgment. You can always count on little sisters for saving the ugly Snapchats you send them, and using them as blackmail, but you gotta love 'em.

3. She isn't afraid to tell you when you are being ridiculous.

I have learned since they were born that this is one of the most important reasons when having little sisters. Little sisters keep you at ease and will call you out on your actions if you are acting completely crazy. So thank you, Scout and Jeannette, for always keeping me under control.

4. You were her first friend.


Since the first day your little sister was born, they have been a huge part of your life. You were their first friend, which is a bond that is really hard to break. Knowing that being a big sister means you get to refer yourself as "her first friend", before anyone else, makes your relationship unbelievably special.

5. She knows you better than anyone else.


Little sisters have witnessed anything and everything that you do when not in public. They have watched you cry, they know your weird habits, they have heard how LOUD you snore or talk in your sleep, and most of all - they have probably seen you naked. She knows exactly what things you like and don't like, rather that be gifts or television shows. She has been with you throughout her entire life, so if you are about to get in a frightening mood, then she knows to stay as far away as possible.

6. You miss her when she is gone.


Being a college student can be really tough when you have to be away from your mini-me. Although not having her constantly annoying you can be relaxing, there is always that feeling of secretly missing all of the singing she does, the hourly interruptions when having alone time, and taking all of your clothes. But when away from her, you can't wait to take it all in again!

7. She is someone to grow old with.


Sure you both will probably find a husband and start your own family, but your little sister will forever grow up with you. One day you both will be old ladies who have their own children and grandchildren. She will be by your side for the rest of your life! There is no getting rid of her!

8. She is your personal photographer.


This is a HUGE bonus in having a little sister. You never have to worry about someone taking pictures of you and your friends or boyfriend. The best part is that they know what poses look good and she isn't afraid to let you know if you look beyond stupid.

9. You're on a team.

You take pride in being sisters and you won't let anyone hurt the other. You are always there for her, as she is for you. You are on a team against anyone that puts her down, whether that be her enemies or someone at her school. You are on a team against your parents when it comes to chores or going to bed. You are on a team to better each other and you are on a team to make sure that they have the right goals for a successful future.

10. It is emotional watching them grow up.


From the moment they are born, you wonder what they will be like as they grow older. You wonder how they will be in school, what path their life will go on, and how much they will look like you. You have been with your little sister throughout their entire life and it is upsetting to know that they won't be little forever. You witness them loosing their first tooth, their first day of High School, their heartbreaks, and so much more. Soon, your "little" sisters won't be so "little" anymore. Watching my little sisters grow up is an emotional experience, but is one that is wonderful because of the young women they have become. No matter the age, they will always be your little sisters!

I know I don't say it enough, so let me start off by saying thank you.

You'll never understand how incredibly blessed I am to have you in my life. You'll also never understand how special you are to me and how much I love you.

I can't thank you enough for countless days and nights at your house venting, and never being too busy when I need you. Thank you for the shopping days and always helping me find the best deals on the cutest clothes. For all the appointments I didn't want to go to by myself. Thank you for making two prom days and a graduation party days I could never forget. Thank you for being overprotective when it comes to the men in my life.

Most importantly, thank you for being my support system throughout the numerous highs and lows my life has brought me. Thank you for being honest even when it isn't what I want to hear. Thank you for always keeping my feet on the ground and keeping me sane when I feel like freaking out. Thank you for always supporting whatever dream I choose to chase that day. Thank you for being a second mom. Thank you for bringing me into your family and treating me like one of your own, for making me feel special because you do not have an obligation to spend time with me.

You've been my hero and role model from the time you came into my life. You don't know how to say no when family comes to you for help. You're understanding, kind, fun, full of life and you have the biggest heart. However, you're honest and strong and sometimes a little intimidating. No matter what will always have a special place in my heart.

There is no possible way to ever thank you for every thing you have done for me and will continue to do for me. Thank you for being you.

To The Older Sibling I Never Had, I Wish You Were Here To Guide Me

I know you don't exist, and I know you never will, but sometimes I catch myself imagining a life with you in it.

Even though years have passed since this horrific day, it still haunts my memory. Starting high school is a terrifying feeling and an insane transition when you don't have anyone to guide you through it. It was a mere 15-step walk to the door, and once I was inside my parents promised me there would be somebody there to help me find my classes, so why did I feel like I was being thrown straight into the gates of hell? I counted down the minutes until we pulled into the school parking lot and dreaded the sound of the car door opening and the anticipated start to the "best four years of my life."

As we were pulling up, I saw a girl who went to the same middle school as I following her older brother, who was a senior through the front doors as if it had been rehearsed at home. At this moment, I would have given my right foot to walk in her shoes right behind an older brother just this once. Eventually, with no place to hide, I just walked inside.

Unfortunately, this would not be the last of my longing for guidance from the older sibling I've never had.

I get it, I got a B in math. I get it, if I would have spent last Friday night studying instead of out with my friends it is possible that I could have gotten an A. But, what my parents seemed to not get was that life actually does go on even if you get a B on a report card. Time doesn't stop, your dreams don't diminish, and you are still viewed as a fairly competent person.

Luckily for my younger sisters, it seems my parents eventually did get it at the cost of my phone being taken away for three months and my social life ceasing to exist for the rest of that school year. As I spent every Friday night at home studying I longed, for just this once, to have an older sibling who was willing to take this hit for me.

Why did nobody tell me that it's actually more fun to go to school dances with friends than the boy you barely know who is just desperate for some conversation with the opposite sex?

I always wondered why that girl I went to middle school with never took a date to any of our formals or homecomings. Eventually, four homecomings and two proms later, I realized that this was because stumbling through the awkward introductions to family, tolerating the completely posed and overdone photos that would never actually be posted anywhere because you didn't talk outside of this forced interaction, and small talk over fruit punch and loud music was never actually necessary. Of course, I passed this message to my younger sisters and saved them the struggle of finding out for themselves.

Don't even get me started on being the first sibling to have to navigate applying to colleges.

I really could have used you then. I'm convinced there is nothing more difficult than trying to fill out a FAFSA or Common Application with absolutely no guidance or experience. Is my application essay long enough? Should I apply for early or regular admission? What if I don't get accepted anywhere? As selfish as it sounds, I would have given my other foot not to have to find these things out for myself.

I'd trade a lifetime worth of shotgun privileges to have you in my life to help me figure this stuff out.
