"Sisters are probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship."
Lauren the middle sister and is 18 years old. She is a troubled teenager who thinks the world is out to get her. Lauren and I have probably the toughest relationship because we are so different but yet so alike. We fought constantly as children but are starting to develop an adult relationship that starts with a friendship. She is incredibly creative and smart even though she doubts herself when doing a task. She has a commanding presence and always tries to be a leader in the kitchen or on the softball field. She is absolutely beautiful and has grown up to be such a strong young woman. I know she will do great things in her life and I am so proud to call her my sister.
Emily is the youngest and is 14 years old. Emily is the artistic and sensitive sister. She loves photography - its a tie for her favorite thing to take pictures of - nature and herself. She is so compassionate and sweet. Emily is always trying to fix problems and wants the world to be a happy place. I love watching her grow up to be a stunningly beautiful young woman. I cannot wait to see how much she grows.
"Sisters annoy, interfere, criticize. Indulge in monumental sulks, in huffs, in snide remarks. Borrow. Break. Monopolize the bathroom. Are always underfoot. But if catastrophe should strike, sisters are there. Defending you against all comers."
"A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost."
"She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child."
