You Know You Missed Her, Because She's Your Sister.

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist on ‎08-05-2018 06:00 AM

It’s a cold day in December almost 13 years ago, and as I’m on the latchkey bus from school, I glance at the clock and it reads 3:25 p.m. By this point in time, I know that my new baby sister had arrived and that later that night our grandparents would be taking us down to the hospital to see her. Even though I had already experienced the thrill and excitement of the arrival of my other two younger sisters, I couldn’t help but be excited to meet the newest member of our family. Throughout my mother’s pregnancy I had wished and hoped for a brother, I already had two sisters, who needs a third!? I asked my mom to please, please, please, make the baby a boy, but she politely told me it didn’t work that way. And, although I wasn’t particularly thrilled to learn the new baby was going to be a girl, again, I wouldn’t change it for anything.

 

Although they all look alike with their signature bright blonde hair, my sisters are all very different and their personalities clash and complement each other perfectly. The oldest of my younger sisters is very sporty and is too smart for her own good. Too smart…really. She’s the one that over analyzes the blonde joke…she is that blonde. She used to want to drive a truck and be a police officer, and although she now drives a sedan and is studying to be an anesthesiologist, she still enjoys the occasional afternoon softball or volleyball game. My middle sister, bless her heart, is so funny and creative it hurts. She’s a goofball in nature with a kind heart and is also way too smart for her own good. She’s the one that made up the witty blonde joke and told it to the oldest sister who didn’t get it. Finally, my youngest sister is the perfect conglomerate of them both while also being uniquely herself. She combines their sportiness, humor, and acuteness into one of the most gentle, loving, and caring humans I know. She watched us all grow and up, just as we watched her grow up, and learned from the mistakes we’ve made and perfected the art of “getting away with it.”

 

I like to think that as a big brother I taught them all they would need to know about how to sneak a cookie before dinner or hide a mess under their bed or in the closet, all the things I had to learn by experience as the firstborn. But the truth of the matter is that they have taught me a great deal, well more than I could have imagined. Among the many things they've taught me over the years are how to care for someone other than myself, responsibility, and how to respect women, and better yet, people in general.

 

That’s what siblings are, people who grow up alongside you, experiencing many of the one of a kind moments you wouldn’t be able to share with anyone else. At the same time, a sister is more than that. A sister is the one you help fall asleep for her nap while at the babysitter, the one you play Call of Duty with (or in my case watch them play COD as you try to understand what’s happening), or the one you help brush and braid their hair after a bath.

 

So, this National Sister’s Day, share some love with your sister, if you have one. And, if you don’t, how about sharing some love with your sister from another mister! Today is all about appreciating that special woman in your life you call “sis.” Make some popcorn, sit down, and enjoy the great and hilarious comedy Sisters - it's only fitting. 

 

Everyone deserves a sister. Luckily, I was fortunate enough to have three.
