My sister and I have never been closer. Now that we’re in our 30s, all the insecurities and rivalries of childhood and adolescence are gone — and good riddance to them!
Although we live almost a thousand miles apart and we don’t get to talk that much, she’s one of my closest friends. When we are able to chat, we pick up exactly where we left off, never mind that it might have been weeks or months since our last phone call.
What amazes me the most is how similar we are, despite varying experiences, physical distance, and personal choices. We laugh at the same things, cry at the same things, say the same things about politics, love, and life without having to put our heads together first.
I hope that my nieces experience the same love and bond that my sister and I shared (though perhaps without some of our teenage spite).
