When You Give A Girl A Sister

You've made her life a little brighter and my laughs a little louder.

When you give a girl an older sister, you've changed her world for the better.

Giving a girl a sister is much more than one would realize. She now has someone to look up to, tell all her secrets, and annoy daily. You have given her someone to confide in and learn from.

Some girls are blessed with just one older sister, I was blessed with two. I have two bright and beautiful women to guide me through the ups and downs. I was given two women to learn from and navigate the waves of life with.

When you give a girl a sister, you've given her someone to blame for everything. Being the youngest sibling, you know your sisters will be blamed for everything before you (sorry guys!) It's okay, you'll laugh about it a few years down the road.

When you give a girl a sister, you've given her someone to argue with daily. Small bickering throughout the day is a given and it's typically about who has the bigger attitude that day. Giving a girl a sister gives her the opportunity to have her biggest fan and occasionally worst enemy all wrapped in one. Regardless of the fight, the next day you'll be texting each other to meet up for ice cream.

When you give a girl a sister, you've given her someone to recite entire movies with and sing at the top of her lungs in the car with. Giving a girl a sister involves giving her someone who can handle the weirdest aspects of her personality. You've given her someone she can eat an entire pizza in front of and not feel ashamed.

When you give a girl a sister you've given her a shoulder to lean on. Even if your sisters are more of the "rub some dirt on it, suck it up, and get over it" types like mine, they still know when you truly need them. They will be there the second you call, even if it's just to chug a bottle of wine.

When you give a girl a sister, you've given her a chance to grow. You've given her a hand to hold when life gets rocky and someone to laugh with at family parties. You've given her someone who understands how she's feeling simply by a look and she knows your bluffing face better than anyone.

When you give a girl a sister, you've given her a very judgmental, second mother. Her opinion on how you look, who you like, and even those you associate with will be important. Just trust me, she knows better than you may think.

When you give a girl a sister, you've given her someone to aid in boredom. When you have to go to the store for your parents or get the car cleaned, your sister is right there willing (not always) and able. You may have to bribe her now and again, but eventually she'll cave.

Giving a girl a sister is an important gift. It's a partner in crime, a best friend, and a role model wrapped in one.

I thank God every day for being given the sisters I was. I wouldn't be the young woman I am today without them. My sisters are my heroes, and I'd be lost without them.

I Believe In Big Brothers

A big brother is more than just someone who makes fun of you and beats up the ones who break your heart.

67

I believe in big brothers. Whether related by blood or water, everyone needs a big brother. Someone to guide you, find you, and fight for you. Someone you can talk to every day but still have stuff to say. Someone who makes fun of you but won't let anyone else.

When I was younger I would follow around my brother, imitating his every move. My brother would then turn around switch places with me and start imitating my every move. We were close, but then he got older and moved away for college and then a job. We didn't talk as much and I only saw him when he came home for holidays, but even then we were so busy we didn't hang out. I lost my big brother, for a little while.

When my brother moved back home, he became part of my daily life. Every day, I would pick him up from the bus stop, and he would ask,

"Do you want ice cream because I want ice cream? Let's get DQ."

I could never pass up ice cream so we would we would drive around screaming Fergie at the top of our lungs and finishing the treat, making sure our mom didn't find out we had it.

Two Oreo and cookie dough blizzards later and the secrets began to spill. We would tell each other everything- relationship problems, work/school issues, things mom did that annoyed us, secrets we couldn't tell our parents, the TV shows we were watching. As the music blasted through the speakers, my brother gave me advice and explained his problems. Then the radio switched to Taylor Swift and we would spend a couple of seconds sharing our hatred for her, but in the end, our voices synced up as we sang along.

As I left for college, leaving my big brother was so sad. I would miss the ice cream runs, boxing fights, and late night eating sessions. It's hard to be away from your best friend.

But college brought us closer. As I began to follow the same path as my brother, he was able to guide and lead me to avoid his mistakes. Even though we were miles apart we still continued our usual antics.

A big brother is more than just someone who makes fun of you and beats up the ones who break your heart. A big brother is someone who teaches you how to be sarcastic, calls you just to tell you about the terrible show he watched and knows when someone's not good enough for you. A big brother is someone who could have no knowledge of where you are but still find you. A big brother is someone who never leaves your side—no matter how big the fight or how far apart you are.
