Here's to the Sisters of the World

By Olivia Gardner, Regular ContributorDecember 7, 2015

“Sister. She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child.”  - Barbara Alpert

Dear Sisters,

I will forever cherish the moments we have with each other when we’re just talking and being ourselves; the moments when we begin to share thoughts and feelings we didn’t know we had. I’ll cherish the times when Mom and Dad are fast asleep, but we’re downstairs until three in the morning discussing life. I will hold dear all the times we have shared laughs and jokes that only we understand.

Sisters are listeners.

Sisters are best friends for life that you don’t have to look for.

Sisters are always there. Sisters are there when you want to say something so badly, but they’re the only ones that will truly understand it fully. Sisters are for family memories. Sisters are for boy talk. Sisters are for making fun of, but knowing we love each other at the end of the day. Sisters are for life.

To anyone that has a sister:

  • Laugh lots

  • Listen to one another

  • Be there for each other in times of need

  • Cry together

  • Stay up late and watch movies

  • Stay up late and talk about anything

  • Cook together

  • Workout together (I need to work on this one)

  • Sing at the top of your lungs

  • Create the weirdest dances possible

  • Record music videos and watch them later (these are interesting)

  • Play video games

  • Stay in the house and eat a ton

  • Love each other

Sisters are truly a blessing and share so many of your memories and laughs. Love and be grateful for having one. If you haven’t realized the importance of having one, the day will come when she’s all you got. Sisters this is for you.

Let's chat!

    Love everything about this! I have 2 younger sister, and I don’t think I would be who I am today if it wasn’t for them. I think we must cherish every moment even if we don’t always get along with our siblings. Family is everything. Thanks for sharing that. Kat xx
