My sister and I are gaga for each other.
Being 9 years apart, we missed significant chunks of each other’s childhoods, but we have a strong bond. We have our spats, but there’s no one else in the world whose face I can read over the phone with such accuracy, who gasps for breath while laughing at the exact same time as me, and whose thoughts are like a fun-house mirror reflection of my own.
Being the greatest big sister in the land to the greatest younger sister in the land, I suggested we create Sister Day, wherein we would exchange treats and cards and generally smother each other with sentiments of admiration and appreciation.
Really, is one day enough? Naw. But we enjoy having a special day to dote on each other.
Really, is one day necessary? Absolutely not. Just like Valentine’s Day is not the only day for sweethearts so show their love.
But something about it does feel necessary. How had the world not thought to acknowledge our Sisterdom before? It wants acknowledgement, and it wants celebration.
What about you? Is there a relationship or accomplishment in your life that wants acknowledgement?
What’s begging to be celebrated? How will you honor it? As the inventor of this holiday, you can choose to celebrate however you like. Let us in on your plans in the comments.
