An Open Letter to My Siblings

From a big sister that can't always be around anymore

An Open Letter to My Siblings

To my three beautiful younger siblings,

I’m a freshman in college now, and I can’t see you guys everyday anymore. And quite frankly, that was one of the hardest adjustments when I initially went to school. And now that I’ve been home from winter break, I’ve come to realize exactly how much I’ve been missing.

This past month I’ve had the chance to be there when you guys get home from school everyday. I’ve had a vote in family movie night. I’ve had you guys burst into my room unannounced, which secretly I’ve always enjoyed anyway. And watching you guys seek my company when I’m home has been really special.

But it’s time for me to go back to school. And that means I have to leave you guys all over and again, and once again adjust to not seeing your faces everyday. And it stinks, because I won’t be around when you get that test back, or when you’re deciding what movie to watch that night. I won’t be there all the time to witness every step of you guys growing up.

But know that I am so proud of what you achieve while I’m gone. And know that I talk about you guys all the time at school (and in a mostly positive light, believe it or not). Know I’m always thinking about you.

But most importantly, know that I consider being your big sister the most important role in my life. I put you guys above all else. Even if we fight, my love for you guys will never stop. And every decision I make, I make knowing that I will be setting an example for you all. And being a good role model for you three is a job I do not take lightly. I know I’m setting a foundation for you all. Know that I love you, even if I don’t like you all the time.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
