My older sister (I call her sis - she was sissy when I was younger and it just feels strange to call her by her name, still) is my best friend, my confidant, my adventure buddy and the person I turn to first. She has been there for me through so many life changes. We have a bond that is so tight, it's actually painful when we argue. Thankfully our relationship takes a front seat to any disagreement and we always move forward. Thank you sis for being who you are.
My little brother (although not so little - well over 6 feet tall) Mike is a blessing. He is so smart he's the one we all turn to for answers to technical questions or science inquiries. He is a generous, compassionate man that cares about all the people around him and sometimes gives too much - there have been those that take advantage. But to him, that doesn't matter. That he was able to help someone, even in a small way, is what is important. He is the kind of man that makes the world a better place. Thank you Mike for the joy you give me.
So today, tell your siblings why they matter. If you are on the outs, consider extending a bridge. There is no friend like a brother or sister.
I love you sis and Mike.
