Happy Siblings Day to my three beautiful sisters. I’m not gonna lie, I think the whole idea of “siblings day” is a bit lame, but you know what’s not lame? Having you three as siblings.
You have enriched my life beyond belief and I pray that someday my children are blessed with siblings as wonderful as you. In you three, I have found teachers, confidants, and friends. You are the ones I laugh with, cry with, and laugh so hard I cry with.
You rub my back, write me letters, and leave me rambling voice mails. You get my jokes, but aren’t afraid to tell me when they suck. You make up hundreds of ridiculous nicknames for me, each one weirder than the last.
To Charlotte I am “Carney”, to Christina I am “Wartaford”, and to Katy I am simply “Co.” I am many things to each of you, but I hope I will always be someone you can trust and lean on. I hope to be the one you call on the best day of your life when you want someone to rejoice with or the worst day of your life when you want to kill your husband, sell your children, and move to Tahiti. If I can be a fraction of the sister you three have been to me, then I will be happy.
Thank you for helping me understand what unconditional love feels like. Thank you for finishing every conversation we have with “I love you.” Thank you for not only saying it, but showing it.
Thank you for allowing me to change, grow, and make a lot of mistakes, and never leaving my side. I love you three with all of my heart!
A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.
