I am so lucky to have my sister..she is my only sibling and though we are almost 3 years apart in age (she is older) we are pretty close to one another...We really don't have that much in common except growing up as sisters..We do like some of the same things but mostly we are different..There was a time in our young adulthood that we didn't really see eye to eye on many issues but we worked through these and today we are the best of friends..
These are the things that make us alike..We both have blonde hair and blue eyes..We both like hiking though I don't do as much anymore due to the back and now she is facing worse back issues than I do..We both have RA... We both have a good work ethic and are hyper to an extent..We have some of the same tics...and our voices sound similar. And we both love adventure and are up beat and happy most of the time. We both have sons and now mainly have granddaughters.
The differences we have are that I love creating thing and making things...and arts and crafts in general...The only thing she has ever done in arts and crafts is traditional rug hook (which is one of the things we have in common). My sister is a perfectionist when it comes to anything..I'm very much the opposite..Another difference is that she is tiny (except she has gained in her old age) and I'm fat and when growing up as a child..she was fat and I was skinny..(funny how we switched that around)..She loves exercise and I hate it..She is obsessed with aging and not wanting to and is not comfortable unless her hair, makeup and clothing look perfect no matter where she is..me I'm comfortable in my skin and if my hair and make up is a mess it doesn't bother me..I even go without make up alot where she would never be seen in public without it..
But all and all, I love my sister and consider her my very best friend. I confide in her and cry and mostly laugh with her..and now we are growing old together..
