Your Sister Is A Lot Of Things, But She Will ALWAYS Be These 11 Things

Your Sister Is A Lot Of Things, But She Will ALWAYS Be These 11 Things

Whatever your relationship is with them, they will always be family.

Siblings are always fun (well sometimes fun) to have around. They make you laugh and most likely share the same frustration with your parents. They also make you want to scream when they take the car when you clearly called dibs on it two days before. I have a sister and even though we have had our differences, we help each other out a lot.

1. A dance partner

If you are like my sister and me, we frequently had dance parties and put on different shows. Whether that would be for our parents or our stuffed animals, with or without a camera rolling, we never ceased the moment to break out our boombox and put on our favorite tunes to dance to.

2. A playmate

Give us a reason to play with our My Scene dolls, we would do it. Give us a couple hours to set up our houses and we would act out a story. Even though we would get tired of playing after 20 minutes of going through the story. We would always have each other.

3. The person who ate the last brownie

As you sit at the dinner table, you both rush to finish first so you can get the last of the dessert. Or when you called dibs on it when you got home from school, you find that all that is left are crumbs and your sister's guilty face. Ugh.

4. A confidant

No matter what it is, she will be your secret keeper. With little to no judgment, she will be there to listen and help you with whatever you are going through. She will be a shoulder to cry on.

5. Another wardrobe

My sister and I wear the same size everything. I am talking literally everything. What I tell other people is that it is a blessing and a curse. It's great because you have double the wardrobe. It's hard when you are away and you see she's wearing your shirt that was packed away downstairs. With lots of arguments over who's wearing what, you establish rules. But not without fights.

6. The person who pushed you down the stairs

Maybe not pushed you down the stairs but caused you some sort of pain. Like slammed your finger in the door, made you fall off your bike, or landed on you while you were on the trampoline. You have many scars and bruises from her but they always make for funny stories later on.

7. A partner in crime

Got a scratch on the car? You both do whatever you can to hide it and no one would ever speak a word of it. Heck, she would help you hide a dead body if it was for a good reason.

8. A protector

Your sister may be annoying and you tease her with whatever pushes her buttons but the minute someone decides to do the same, you protect her with your life. You will not have anyone hurt her. If she gets hurt, you will hunt down that person and make sure they never do it again.

9. A singing partner

Long (or even short) car rides call for sing-alongs. Especially songs that have you dancing and screaming the lyrics. Added bonus: open the sunroom and windows on a beautiful day and grace the people with your beautiful singing !!

10. A photo bomber

You have the perfect pose for a beautiful picture with great lighting. You look at it and see none other than your sister to make the silly face to ruin the perfect picture. Leave it to her.

11. Your biggest cheerleader

She is your biggest support system. No matter what good things happen in your life, big or small, she will be there with an awesome job and a hug. She wants to see you succeed. She cares about you and will always believe in you.

Sisters' relationships are all different. I love my sister and the relationship we have. Being apart from her in college has only made our bond stronger. I am proud of the person she has become and can't wait to see what else she has in store. But sisters will always be family.

Dear Mom, I Hope You Know

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

Dear Mom,

I hope you know that I appreciate you.

You are the hardest working woman I know, continuously putting your family before yourself. Thank you for doing all of the tedious jobs that no one wants to do like keeping the house in order, cooking the food, and doing the laundry. Thank you for constantly putting up with my siblings and I. Thank you for always supporting us in our interests and hobbies. Thank you for investing in our daily lives and listening to our minor problems. Thank you for always loving us unconditionally.

I hope you know I'm sorry.

I know I can be a big pain in the butt sometimes, and for that I'm sorry. I'm sorry for yelling at you, arguing with you, not listening to you, and making dumb decisions at times, but thank you for loving me anyways. Thank you for helping me stand back up, teaching me right from wrong, and pushing me to be the very best version of me.

I hope you know your love inspires me.

You live your life with a love that is contagious. Whether its nurturing love, tough love, friendly love, or romantic love, you have it all and you show it daily. The love you and Dad share is something I hope to find one day and the love you have for your family is evident in the way you constantly put us first.

I hope you know that you are my biggest role model and hero.

Ever since I was a little girl, you have been the person I have looked to in my life. You are strong, independent, confident, loving, supportive, and nurturing-- everything I strive to be as a woman and as a future mother. You give the best advice, even when I don't always take it. Though, I should know better by now because mothers always know best. Without you in my life, I honestly don't know where I'd be.

I hope you know that you are my best friend.

Not only are you my biggest cheerleader supporting me in everything I do, you are the person I talk to about everything, whether it's good or bad. I'm honestly so thankful for the relationship we share because I've had countless screwups and you literally give the best advice. Seriously, thank you for being the person I can count on at all times, at any time of the day or even night to just talk with. I mean we really do have some of the best conversations, best laughs, best cries (when needed), and the most fun watching cheesy chick flicks together or going on crazy shopping adventures.

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

I don't mean to make you cry or anything -- even though you probably already are, but I want you to know that when the time comes, I'm going to be there for you just like all of these years you've been here for me. I will be there to support you, talk with you, laugh with you, cry with you, and love you for all of my life.

Honestly, I can't really imagine my life without you -- but it doesn't matter because I wouldn't be here without you, so here's to you.

Thank you for being you.

Love you lots!

Your daughter.

To All The Girls That Have Only Brothers, You're Not Alone

They're my favorite people in the whole world.


Ever since I was a little girl, I've always wanted an older sister that I could relate to, get advice from and share a room and clothes with. I always felt that my two brothers always had a built-in best friend with each other and had an unspoken language while I was always the odd one out.

It especially became challenging when I went through my puberty phase and didn't have someone to look up to. My mom was always there, but it's not always the same experience.

I wanted a sister. Someone that I could go shopping with, have deep heart to hearts with, and someone that I knew would always be by my side 24/7.

But, as I got older, I started to appreciate being the only girl and having two brothers to always make me laugh until I cry, beat all the hard video game levels for me, and protect me no matter what.

My brothers are my best friends.

Now that we're all a bit older, we can relate on more levels and we always enjoy the time we spend together, which isn't as frequent anymore as two of us are in college and the other is going through high school. Every holiday and vacation is the time of our lives and feels like we're kids again, play fighting and actually fighting over the stupidest things.

They always want the best for me and will pick me up when I'm down... and will literally pick me up when I'm stranded at the train station after school. They'll text me if I want anything while they're making a quick stop at Wawa. They'll get me the most thoughtful Christmas presents (with help from mom of course).

But most importantly, they'll always make sure I'm taken care of.

So, yeah, sometimes it's rough not having a sister, but it will always be amazing having brothers.
