The Bonds of Sisterhood

My older sister, Julie, celebrated her 31st birthday on Nov. 15. Today, I was reminiscencing about “the good ole days” and thought I would make a list of all the things that I think are great about having an older sister.
1. your wardrobe is twice as large
2. you get to learn the do’s and don’ts of dating and why boys are horrible, nasty creatures.
3. you later learn about the joys of marriage and motherhood
4. you have someone who plays with you – literally you are the “babydoll”
5. you have someone to talk to who has gone before you and can share how things are or are not done
6. you get great exercise because you are always “it” when playing games
7. phone calls about anything and everything, and she understands and won’t think bad of you
8. a person who always forgives you, even when you don’t deserve it
9. an encourager
10. an example of a good mom
11. a friend
This list could go on and on and on. I wish I had a picture so you could know just how beautiful Julie is on the outside and if you know her, you know that she is incredibly beautiful on the inside. I am so glad to have her as my sister – how different life would be without her.
