Today is Siblings Day. It was created to honor the special relationships that we have with our siblings. Often our oldest friends, siblings share our ties to our past, and special bonds that last forever.
I grew up as one of four sisters, each two years apart. My sisters are my best friends and my greatest confidantes. I’m number two, so number three and I used to joke that we were the double filling inside an Oreo.
Growing up, we were always a group. We were the four sisters, dressed in matching outfits, and standing in descending order. We did everything together, and always found ways to have fun.
All my favorite childhood memories include my siblings. We laughed, played and cried together. My sisters are the people that know me best, and share my hopes and dreams for the future.
As adults, we have all gone our separate ways. We have different professions, with husbands and families of our own. And although we don’t live in the same country or city, we are just as close as ever. I couldn’t imagine going through life without them.
