Growing up with an older sister means there’s always someone playing with your toys, arguing with you, debunking the hearsay you consider facts, and telling you straight out when you’re being stupid. Growing up with an older sister means new clothes are just hand-me-downs, and your actual new ones can be stretched out from the borrowing.
But having an older sister also means you’ll never have to play alone, and there’s always someone to sleep next to you on scary childhood nights. Having an older sister means having someone save you from going hungry because your college allowance ran out and having someone stop you from being too stupid for society. It means having someone to depend and having someone always look out for you.
Though I always say I dream of an older brother, I always feel like I’m blessed to have a sister like you. We’ve grown out of quarreling 24/7 over petty things and moved on to arguing like two adults (really). Though you keep saying that I look older, I’ll always look up to you and not just because you’re taller. Don’t feel too pressured even though you may feel like we’re pinning all our hopes on you. But really, we’re just always praying that all your dreams will come true and all your efforts will pay off. But with the amount of passion you put into your doctor duties, I’m sure that things will turn out pretty well.
Happy birthday to the first person I fangirled with and the first person I told my crush to. Happy birthday to my family’s future doctor. Happy birthday, ate! 🙂
