When Your Sister Is Your Best Friend

When Your Sister Is Your Best Friend

Lucky to be able to not only call you my sister, but also my best friend.

We have had a rocky road growing up, there is no question about that, but we have never turned our backs on each other when times were tough. I would not wish the difficult times we have struggled with in life on my worst enemy. But having you by my side made the really bad times a little easier. I can never thank you enough for not leaving me at my worst.

"Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of. You know whatever you do they will still be there"

Siblings fight, it's a force of nature. Even though sometimes we may just be "discussing" something and auntie will tell us to stop fighting and we argue with her that we are not. Sometimes we bicker and say things we wish we did not but we always apologize and get over the stupid little fights we do have, I feel like we can never stay mad at each other for long. It does not mean that we care less or do not like each other, I personally think many of our fights have brought us closer in many ways, like begging you not to tell on me when I "accidentally" hit you when were messing around. Just think about all the funny stories we have to tell now. For example vacation at Hampton Beach and hitting you when we woke up and I got grounded. I was so mad, but now we look back at it and laugh because like why did I even do that. I guess we will never know. Haha.

You always listen to me when I tell you to do things... well most of the time. I love how you come to me for advice and confide in me when you need someone to talk to. I may not know it all but I am always happy to share the best advice I can with you.

There have been endless times when you have been there for me and have been my shoulder to cry on. We can relate to many different things, although we have not been through all the same situations together, I still fell like we can understand each other, especially in difficult situations. You always know how to pick me up when I am down and need help. I'm so happy to be able to share so many experiences and memories with you. You have made so many bad times easier, and good times even better.

Honestly, I really do love you and consider you my best friend. We have never left each other and I never plan to leave you. I will always be here waiting for you when you are mad at me and waiting for you to forgive me, and I know you will do the same for me.

Kalei, Never change for anyone and continue to bring smiles and happiness to everyone you meet. I will always be here for you no matter what. I will always listen to you even if you are just rambling on about the cats, we all know they are your favorite. Haha, Sorry there is no way I could leave them out of this. Thank you for being my true best friend. Thank you for the late night talks about important things and pointless things too. Thank you for making me laugh when I am upset, and always knowing the right things to say. Thank you for not letting me forget to be silly sometimes. Thank you for dealing with me even when you are annoyed with me. Thank you for being you, and not changing for anyone, you are your own unique person and I honestly love that about you. Thank you for always reminding me that no one's opinion should matter, and reminding me to always love myself no matter how hard it may be sometimes. I can not thank you enough for all that you have done for me, and I am honestly the luckiest person to be able to not only call you my "little" sister, but also my Best Friend. I love you more than you will ever know, even if I do not always say it, I really do mean it.

A Letter To My Go-To Aunt

Happiness is having the best aunt in the world.

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.

A Poem: My Mother

In honor of Mother's Day, that was on the 12th, here is a poem dedicated to my mother.


To the only person who can be my mentor, friend, and leader at the same time

To someone who would make me read my own books before bedtime

And puts everything down to make sure there is a smile on my face

To the person that I find impossible to ever replace.

Somehow you are always right even when it seems wrong

And when the worst does happen, how do you still manage to stay so strong?

I'm not only impressed but inspired by you

Knowing that somehow you'll always know me better than I do.

When I'm frustrated and annoy you, you simply try to understand me

Because you have always told me that even when you can't understand, plain acceptance is the key

You have listened to all my laughs, heard me cry, and felt my emotions like they were your own

You are the only reason I am joyous and the security I need to know that I am never alone.

To the only person who has truly taught me how to live

And watched me grow and make mistakes yet still knows how to forgive

Because that's who she is, certainly not like any other

There are many women but none like my own mother.

Happy Mother's Day!
