Today my sister was not feeling well. After I came home from school, I did my best to help her feel better. I played Simon Says with her to help her cooperate with what my mom needed to do to take care of her, I tried to do funny things to make her laugh, and I snuggled beside her on the couch and read her stories. I love my sister as much as I love myself and I don't like seeing her not feeling well, so I wanted to do everything I could to help her feel better. I hear that a lot of siblings fight a lot with one another. I argue with my sister sometimes too. I am trying to learn to take the higher road when we're having a disagreement and let the things that don't matter go, and always remember how special my sister is to me.
