These two. They make me giggle. The are best friends one minute then bickering the next. They love each other fiercely but then they are quick to blame each other when I am cross about something.
I guess when you are young it’s hard to appreciate the gift of siblings. To understand that these people you are growing up with, playing with each day – these are the people that will be next to you forever, holding your hand and supporting you.
You take them for granted. You don’t actually remember a time without them. Harri has never known a life without Meme. I always say to my girls you don’t know how lucky you are having each other and, to be fair, I didn’t growing up with my sisters. You take for granted those lazy mornings together watching television chatting about nonsense, you take for granted that there will always be someone in the house for you to play with and that you always have a buddy.
But one day, when they are much older and they are upset or have had a bad day, they will cry and pick up their phone to call a friend. Then they will realise the person they need to talk to is their sister.
The best thing about having a sister was that I always had a friend.
