Dear Sister Girl,
There’s so much to say. There’s so much I could say. So much I want to say. There’s so much I want to thank you for, so much I want to yell at you for, so much so that I am so grateful to have you.
Nobody knows what it’s like to be us…The stories that we talk about that only we know about, the struggles that we faced that no one knows about. Only we know how we remained strong after SO MUCH FUCK SHIT that we had to go through growing up.
Everyone always looked at us and hated on what we had and what we got to experience – they envied us for what their eyes could see, but never knew and still don’t know what it was like to be us. To have to go without to have to make a way out of no way sometimes.
We shared a life — and nobody can understand parts of me that only you can. No one can understand parts of me that only you know.
We weren’t always the best of friends…not even the best of sisters LOL we could not stand each other — or you didn’t like me because I would bother you and get away with it & you would get in trouble (MY BAD lol!!) But once we did get close, you became my bestfriend ❤ We would come home from school, nap, wake up do homework, then talk into the hours of the night. I remember it like it was yesterday (shoot, we just did it the other day lol).
We got so close and have remained that way over the years (except that rough patch in 2012-2013 where I was going through)…nonetheless, we were and still are inseparable. You are the only person that can say that they really know what it’s like to be me. You understand why I am the way I am at my core — because of mommy, my dad, the family, school, and life, in general.
Each day, I watch as you parent Shannell and Amani, and even me LMAO (you really are my mother – don’t care what anyone says.) and I pray to God that I can be half the mother that you are, half the person that you are. Half the big sister that you are to my little sister.
You push me. And inspire me when I need it the most. When I’m at my breaking point most days, you are the voice of reason that pushes me to keep going + moving forward, even when you don’t know what’s going on.
I have been blessed with the greatest big sister on Earth! ❤
When the parents are getting on my last nerve, or when I’m in need, I know I can always count on you — because what’s yours is mine, what’s mine is yours, and what’s ours is ours.
So this is to say THANK YOU!
Thank you for sticking by me, even when I suck.
Thank you for never leaving me, even when I’m a (b^&*$).
Thank you for having our children. lol
Thank you for being you — because without you, there’d be no me
(and you remind me of that ALL THE TIME 🤦🏾♀️)
I love you sister girl — more than you will ever even begin to know. & when we get to the top, JUST KNOW IT’S LIT 😈🔥
