It was my birthday today and after a bit of a quiet day my sister just took me out to dinner and made sure I had a lovely time. She's a really special person and we've been through lots together and can talk to eachother about anything. I think that your sister is your own special friend, and I feel very very lucky to have mine. How about your sister?

Oh, we definitely had our moments when we were growing up too. I think that's pretty normal! But as we've got older we can recognise what's important and what's not worth fighting about. I'm glad you're so close now. Thanks for your answer.

How do I feel about my sister? She is the sharer of my memories good and bad, which makes the bad bearable and the good golden. She is the one person who has been with me through all of my life and knows EXACTLY how I got to here. (Without me having to explain it, which would be impossible to do even if I had a whole 'nother lifetime.) She has been there always and nobody on this planet will EVER know me like my sister knows me. She is the half that makes me whole.

That's a really nice description, and I can relate to it well! We have also been through some really good and bad things together and nobody knows me like she does. I feel very lucky to have her. Thank you for your response.

I have one sister and while we were growing up I didn't really like her. I think mainly it was because we were so close in age and so very different. (anyone remember quinn and daria?) But now that we are older and both Mothers I think we have a lot more in common than before. We get along very well and speak a lot more than when we used to live in the same house. I think its funny how growing up DOES change things.

Yes, I remember that programme, lol! And I understand what you're saying. I agree about how growing up changes things. Although I'm very different to my sister now in lots of ways, I think just from us both being more mature (although some people might disagree about that!!) we can see which things just aren't important and not worth arguing about. It's really nice that your relationship has changed and that you like eachother better now.

I miss my sister - we live far apart, but a call from her will always cheer me up !!!

It must be hard not seeing her much, but it's lovely that speaking to her cheers you up so much.

I also have a sister and a brother. I feel closer to my sister though we had a ten years seperate age. Maybe ause most of the time we had the same kind of thinking and principle. We laso had the similar hobbies an talking the same fav discussions. And though sometimes we fought about something real stupid, we both know that if one of us in a tight spot, we will help each other the best way we can.

It's nice that the age gap doesn't make a difference to you. Isn't it great when you have someone who is so similar to you? I think most siblings fight at sometime, usually when they're young, but it's good when you grow up and you realise you've got so much in common. Even if you have different lives, different hobbies and different views, you have a shared history and you can sometimes still have the same kind of personality, like me and my sister.

I had 4 sisters and lost the one I was closest to to cancer in 2000. She wasn't the easiest person to get along with, but we spent a lot of time together and talked about a lot of different things. It's amazing how much you realize how much you miss someone, even 8 years later, they are gone. My other 3 sisters and I used to be much closer than we are now. I am closer to one of them than to the others. She and I do things together...we occasionally go to dinner and we both like to go to garage/yard/second hand shop sales and shop for our grandchildren. We are very different people but we get along and we did bowl together in a league this last season and had a very good time together. My oldest sister I used to think was very special, but over the years my opinion has changed a lot. She IS the one who convinced me to go the university I decided on and to pick the career I did, but over the years it became more difficult to talk to her as she got to have a sense of superiority to me and I didn't appreciate it. I also didn't get along well with her husband, which was a problem for many years. The other sister and I were close for a while when we were both newly married, but we went our own ways and when she moved to the outskirts of town and spent more time with my oldest sister, we didn't see much of each other anymore. I will say that my daughters are closer to me than my sisters are and I'm not sure that that's the way it should be, although they are grown, but my sisters are closer in age and should know more about me and what goes on with my life since we have lived more of it together. I'm not sure if that makes any sense.
