Today is my little sisters 14th birthday….

“Sisters don’t need words. They have perfected a language of snarls and smiles and frowns and winks, sniffs and snorts, gasps and sighs – that can undermine any tale you’re telling. ”

“If you don’t understand how a woman could both love her sister dearly and want to wring her neck at the same time…you were probably an only child.”

“In the cookies of life, sisters are the chocolate chips.”

“My sister taught me everything I really need to know, and she was only in sixth grade at the time” (truth!!)

“I smile because shes my sister, I laugh because there is nothing she can do about it!”

“Having a sister is like having a best friend you can’t get rid of. You know whatever you do, they’ll still be there.” – Amy Li

“A younger sister is someone to use as a guinea-pig in experimental go-carts. Someone to send on messages to Mom. Someone who needs you, who comes to you with bumped heads and grazed knees. Someone who trusts you to defend her. Someone who thinks you know the answers to almost everything.”

“You can kid the world. But not your sister.”

“She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she’s the reason you wish you were an only child.” ~ Barbara Alpert
