The Special Bond of Sisterhood

Theme: Healthy Relationships

Friendship.

a friend is a person who you always trust
a person who knows the people you love
a person who slows you down when you rush
a person who you will have the back of

a sister’s a friend who’s always around
who you cherish and love, even through fights
a heart to which yours will always be bound
Who’ll hold your hand, through the darkest of nights.

a neighbor’s a girl you’ve known since your youth
who’s bedroom you can see out your window
a person to whom you will tell the truth
Who used to play games with you in the snow

A woman is all of these things and more
And all of us are these things in our core

Sisters have a special bond. Especially when you’re similar people who are close in age and get along well. My only sibling is my older sister Olivia, who is moving to Argentina to study abroad, on her eighteenth birthday, in three weeks. I’m going to miss her. We finish each other’s sentences and accidentally speak in unison and have the same favorite ice cream order: Honey-Lavender and Cinnamon Cookie Dough, in a waffle cone. When I complain about sexist boys at school, she knows exactly who I’m talking about. We know the same people so we always know when drama is going down. When she sneaks out, I cover for her, and when I have dumb questions, I know who to ask. I’m losing my best friend, maybe forever.

One Direction said it best!

“I live for you, I long for you, Olivia
I’ve been idolizing the light in your eyes, Olivia
I live for you, I long for you, Olivia
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go”
