My sister and I are not two of the same.
I’m pretty hyper and she’s rather tame.
I like to be active and frequently on the go.
She would rather relax and lay somewhat low.
I tend to take things personal, hold my ground and won’t budge.
She’s much less emotional and doesn’t hold a grudge.
I wear my emotions on my sleeve for all to see.
She is very private, not at all like me.
I am a math person, very much black and white.
Her career is in writing, where there is no wrong or right.
I am very practical, always looking for the best sale.
She buys what she likes, no matter how much or what it entails.
I am the brown crayon, not very much fun.
She is bright yellow, like the color of the sun.
I always try to please and go out of my way.
She does what she sees fit, no matter the day.
Regardless of our differences we now play different roles.
We have grown up a lot, have different priorities and goals.
We are both aunts now, and couldn’t ask for more.
We both have girls who we each love and adore.
When my girls are with Auntie Lisa, they are guaranteed a good time.
There are no rules, no spared expenses, not a dime.
They do what they please, when they are with their aunt.
She gives them anything, it’s not a matter of can or can’t.
My girls love her to death and for that I am glad.
She is more like a friend than like a mom or dad.
Hopefully as they get older to her they will go.
For advice on life, and tell her things I don’t want to know.
I know I can trust her, she won’t guide them astray.
I hope I can provide the same, I’ll try my best every day.
Regardless of the differences that we each bear.
We love each other a lot and there is so much we share.
There’s still so much to come as the girls grow and we age.
I am grateful to have my sister to go through each stage.
