My sister was surprised to discover that the recently deceased Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland were sisters. I happened to know they were related, but I didn't realize how strained their relationship was from childhood. How sad! Apparently it was a rivalry that extended from their personal into their professional life.
I can't even imagine going through life with bitter, angry feelings towards someone so close to me. My sister is my best friend. No one understands me quite like she does. We communicate in many ways. Sometimes without speaking.
We are so much alike. And so different. Our love and dedication to each other and our family have pulled us through the roughest times. We laugh until we cry. More often than not. We almost always get along, and that says a lot since we live together. (Having our own bathrooms helps!) Everyone should have an amazing sister like mine. 
If you have a sister, let her know how much you love her. If your relationship is poor, repair the damage. Family is everything. I have the greatest sister in the world. (My brother isn't too shabby either!)

I love you D.D.!!!
