“For there is no friend like a sister
In calm or stormy weather;
To cheer one on the tedious way,
To fetch one if one goes astray,
To lift one if one totters down,
To strengthen whilst one stands”
― Christina Rossetti
Christina Rossetti is soo exact in her words. Your sister is selfless, caring, lovable and are best of buddies. There is a mutual admiration in this pristine relationship. She is non-judgemental. She also knows exactly where to drive the knife to hurt you the most. And then you wish you were the only child. You can always count on her, she is your lifeline.
She is the backbone of every family. She rescues you when your parents want to scold you. She wears your dresses as her own. She convinces parents to let you go out with friends. She comes up with most relevant suggestions she is an inborn counsellor. She is your partner in crime against quarrels with parents. She is blatant to tell you which dress suits you the most and which don’t. You can always approach her when you are unable to solve a mathematical equation or giving up on Shakespearean verse. She is too happy to celebrate your success and also keeps your both feet on the ground to prevent you from losing everything. She knows all your secrets and can read you like an open book. No matter who begins to fight first, it’s you who will always have to apologise. She is nurturing just like your mother. She wants to bring out the best in you. Life without a sister is uneventful as she brings colours in your life. You will not understand what it is like to be blessed with a sister. If the sky comes falling down for you, there’s nothing in this world that your sister wouldn’t do to save you. Thank God that you are gifted with sister.
