Mommy Monday: SisterlyJanuary 19, 2015
Today is my sister's 21st birthday. Did I just type that? I mean, she's still my baby sister right? As bitter as she will be once she sees these throwback photos of the good ole days, I think she'll understand my need to reflect.
I've never been that sibling that was embarrassed by my sister. I was a Senior when she was a Freshman. I'd always say hi to her at school. Hugs were frequently exchanged, and she even hung out with my friends and I on occasion.
Perhaps our close knit relationship sprouted because we shared a room? A situation we forced ourselves into after begging my parents to have another baby. Love you Bill.Of course we fought, of course there where days we "hated" each other. That's the funny thing about unconditional love. Even if you smack your sister in the face with a magazine and scar her eyebrow for life, (that happened) she'll love you the next day.
We couldn't be more different. Even as we grew, even as we developed our own personal styles, we remained polar opposites.
My relationship with my sister is one I take very seriously. We talk every single day. Sometimes "talking" consists of Snapchats, but hey, that's life right? Even with our busy lives we find time for each other.
I couldn't be more proud of the woman she's become. These past two years have been rough for her. I've watched her suffer many heart breaks, a career change, and even endure some cruel people she thought were her friends. No matter what I'll always have her back, she will always be one of the most important people in my life. She is the best sister I could as for, and an even better Aunt to Penelope.
Do you have a sibling that you share a close bond with?
How to you keep family a priority?
Mommy Monday isn't reserved for mommy-only posts. I take this day of the week to express myself. Whether it be my feelings, what we did over the weekend, or just to share some photos with you guys. I have the most wonderful people reach out to me on a daily basis. Your kind words, stories and encouragement mean more than I can express.
