I’m blogging cozied up in my bed after an amazing weekend, but keep reminiscing on hilarious, ridiculous, beautiful memories with my sisters. I decided to dedicate this post to Kerry, Katie and Hope; the three people I care about more than absolutely anything. It’s been such a privilege to be their oldest sister and watch them grow into the amazing women they are. My girls are the first to correct me when I’m out of line and the last to judge me when I make a mistake. I wish we could live together at home all the time, but being at school has deepened our relationship and made us closer. The pictures I posted remind me of great days we had as a family. Love you babes!
Sibling relationships – and 80 percent of Americans have at least one – outlast marriages, survive the death of parents, resurface after quarrels that would sink any friendship. They flourish in a thousand incarnations of closeness and distance, warmth, loyalty and distrust. ~Erica E. Goode, “The Secret World of Siblings,” U.S. News & World Report, 10 January 1994
Sisters annoy, interfere, criticize. Indulge in monumental sulks, in huffs, in snide remarks. Borrow. Break. Monopolize the bathroom. Are always underfoot. But if catastrophe should strike, sisters are there. Defending you against all comers. ~Pam Brown
