There’s almost 9 years between my sister and I. For so long I thought I’d be stuck with smelly brothers for life, until my mother’s last baby came out a tiny (well, if you can call 4kg/9lbs tiny…) dark haired little girl! Born just a week before my 9th birthday, I couldn’t have asked for a better present.
We haven’t always been super duper close – when you’re 18 and your sister’s only 9 there’s only so many heart-to-heart chats you can have, and for most of my later teens years having a little sister was pesky. However, peskiness and all, we’ve always loved each others company.
Now that I’m 26 with two small children, I can’t imagine getting along without my sister. My go to babysitter, housemaid and general helper-outer, she has a heart that wants only to serve and please. Don’t get me wrong, my own mum and my mother-in-law are also such a help and support to me! But there’s something special about a sister’s help…maybe its the fact that I can just boss her around as I please 😂 #oldersibling
Her faith, her humour and her loving, serving personality make me so proud to call her my sister. There are still plenty of times when we want to punch each other in the face and our chats on messenger can get a little colourful, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m so thankful that my own daughters will have her as a role model to look up to as they grow older.
So, if you’re blessed enough to have a sister that you’re close to, or if you have a friend or cousin that is just like a sister to you, drop them a line and wish them a happy Sisters Day 😉
