Her and I relationship is nothing like the one I share with my brother but what we have is special in its own way. 7 long years separate us so when we were growing up we were in two different stages in life. When I was playing with barbies she was listening to New edition and talking on the phone. I hated her when I was younger and wanted nothing to do with her and tried to keep my distance from her...I thought of her as the devil. It wasn't until she went off to college in 1994 that I realized how much I loved and would miss my sister. I remember leaving her behind at Morgan State University and crying in the car as my mother pulled off I thought I was going to lose it without her. Years have passed she got married , had my niece and now our relationship is so much more and stronger...my sister is one of my best friends. I talk to her almost everyday and about everything...well maybe not everything, me and her are like day and night so we talk about things that I know she can handle some of me would just be to overwhelming for her. I spend every other weekend with her doing what sister do...gossip, fight, laugh, eat, and just enjoying each others company. If you asked me 10 or 15 years ago if I thought my and sister and i would be so close...I would have said HELL NAW!! I see now that all the bickering and fighting was because she loved me more than words can express...She once told me that I screamed at you and fought with you so much because I wanted you to be a better women I wanted you to be strong I wanted you to be able to handle the world at its worse and I figured if you could make it through life with me you could make it through anything.......I guess that was her way of making me stronger....and for all of that I thank and love her.
