Growing up in the middle of two sisters, one 5 years older, and one 2 years younger, I know first-hand how annoying, frustrating and irritating sisters can be. I also know that while my sisters and I drove each other crazy when we were kids, we’ve formed a bond and share a love and friendship that I wouldn’t trade for the world. We went from arguments and fights in our teen years to being best friends in adulthood. There is something to be said for the bond that sisters share because there are so many things that only your sister can bring to your life.

Only your sister can understand the craziness of your family- because she’s part of it.

Your sister comprehends the weirdness because she’s a part of it! Every family has their own level of crazy. I can’t tell you how many times my sisters and I have laughed about the craziness of our family.

Only your sister knows all of your weird quirks- and makes you laugh about them.

Your sister has grown up with you and knows all of your secrets! My sisters know all of the random, weird quirks about me, and I about them. We laugh about them until the secret is broken to an outsider- then the laughter part is over!

Only your sister can finish your sentences and grocery shop just like you.

You and your sister often think alike because of the ways you were raised and the years of time you’ve spent together. I’ve found that my sisters and I are often thinking the same things and can finish each other’s sentences. Sometimes we laugh at the same, and even say the same things at the exact same time. Not only that, we have the uncanny ability to grocery shop the exact same way. Who knew grocery shopping patterns were hereditary?

Only sisters can brawl all day, but end on a happy note.

You grew up arguing and fighting, it would just be weird to completely stop that as adults! My younger sister and I are known for our daily banter and senseless arguing over the most trivial things like whose dog is smarter. It’s always a humorous encounter and just represents a way for us to challenge each other and laugh. I can always count on a laugh when we spend time together.

Only your sister knows exactly what you need and when you need it.

If there’s anyone that gets you, it’s your sister. She has seen your ups and your downs and she’s been there through each and every one. When I’m experiencing a down, my sisters have the uncanny ability to help turn it into an up with a funny picture of my niece, a basket full of candy, and an hour of their time. It’s surprising how someone else knows exactly what you need and when you need it.

I’m not saying that my sisters don’t drive me crazy.

They sure do drive me crazy sometimes and I’m grateful every day that we don’t live together (that would be a repeat of our adolescent fights all over again). Even though we can get on each other’s nerves, I would not trade the relationship and bond that I share with my sisters for anything. They simply get me, where I come from and where I’m going. Tell your sister how much you love her today. There’s no relationship like the one you share with her.
