A Sister is a Forever Friend

Happy 21st Birthday Elizabeth

"Sibling relationships - and 80% of Americans have at least one - outlast marriages, survive the death of parents, resurface after quarrels that would sink any friendship. They flourish in a thousand incarnations of closeness and distance, warmth, loyalty and distrust."

Sister, I hope that as time prevails so does your wise judgement. That you never misinterpret a lesson as a mistake. I wish you many more years to come filled with love, happiness, and plenty of courage to pull through these challanges we call life. As usual, I read several quotes on the meaning and the type of bond two sisters can form and I found them all incorrect. Of course I can relate to many of them but when it comes to my sister it's better if I quote myself.
"A sister is someone that is placed in your path without your approval, as time passes you don't realize how close you actually are to this person. Sure there's the fights and the arguments but no matter how critical an argument can be you know you can count on her for ever. Even if they have their own set of close friends, they can never have the same bond as two sisters. She's like that extra bag of chips in a vending machine that tags along with the first bag, you pay for one and end up with two. That's how we roll, you mess with one and deal with two. And nothing in the world can ever change that." Peace.
