My sister and I are more than just sisters, we are best friends. My husband jokes that it took him a while to get used to it, but after 10 years he has it figured out. She is here so much that my kids tell her she should just move in. On an average day we talk either on the phone or in person at least 5 times a day. She calls me everymorning while she walks her dog before work and every afternoon after work while she drives home. We usually talk from the time she leaves work until she gets home until she walks over here with her dog and then a few times during the evening one of us will call the other for something. It is terrible when one of us is away. It is like therapy.

Me too! I'm quite close to my sis and we're like bestfriends too. I think it really helps when you have that kind of relationship with your sister.

My sister and I are just like you. My husband calls us his two wives. Right now she is actually living with us while we fix up her trailer or get her a new one. Her trailer is about 15 feet away from mine on the property that my husband and I own. We tend to go crazy when we don't talk multiple times a day. We joke about how when she finds a man he had just better accept that we have to live on the same property or atleast right next door to each other. It is really weird because we really weren't that close growing up but once we became adults we just got closer and closer. Now we get along so well. We turn to each other for advice, laughter, help, laughter, enjoyment, and of course laughter. I can't imagine not talking to her multiple times a day. I can't imagine not seeing her every day. When one of us goes out of town or something we just kind of go nuts and then take all day to recover when we are together again.

I can relate to the relationship / situation you have with your sister. Actually, I am the eldest and I have 1 younger brother & 2 younger sisters. However, I feel closer to my sister who is 6 years younger than me. She understands me even if I don't utter any words to her. Body language maybe. But way back then, about more than a decade ago, I really had a hard time relating with them. I guess it was due to our distance. I had my schooling in the Metropolitan Area, while my 3 siblings only studied here when they were in the collegiate level. Anyway, I really appreciate the closeness we have now. The best part of having a sister (whether older or younger than you), I guess, is the part that you share secrets and your everyday lives and there's a very special bond which ties you both.

My sister and I are twins. We spent so much of our childhood trying to make sure everyone knew we were different. We were worlds apart. I think part of our closeness now is us finally being comfortable with who we are individually and knowing that we are diferent just because of who we are.

My sister was away for 4 days and it was terrible. When you are used to started your day with a lengthy conversations with each other the days drag when one of us is away. The minute she got home we talked on the phone for 2 hours and as soon as she could she came over so that the kids could see her and her and I could chat. We didn't always get along either, but we became really close during my first pregnancy and ever since we have been attached.
