The Importance Of Being The Maid Of Honor In My Life

Improved Essays
Generally in the past my life has gone by fairly slow in years, this year however just happened to be an exception. I would say that this year was one of the most important and entertaining years of my life, and I still to this day don’t know if that is a good thing or a bad thing. I have gotten to experience a lot more this year than in the past, and I am very grateful yet worried that I have had to experience some of these things so young in life. This past year I was able to experience a lot of new places and even new faces. I was challenged with several serious health problems, along with school work, and personal family issues. Thinking back on this year I have realized that I have come a long way, and I feel like a more accomplished and …show more content…
February 28, 2016. This is the day that my best friend asked me to be her maid of honor in her wedding. When I tell you that my best friend asked me, you are probably thinking a close friend that I spend a lot of time with. Although that is true, my best friend is also my sister. Being asked to be the maid of honor is amazing, and so many great people get to experience that, but to be asked by my sister was one of the best things I heard this entire year. In the past my sister and I have not always gotten along as good as we do now. So to come this far in a year, is the best thing for our relationship. Being six years apart in age we always had that rivalry between us. I wanted to be just like her, and basically just wanted me to leave her alone. We experienced your typical big sister little sister relationship. That however changed when she started to date a guy named Alex in high school. Alex was a great guy. He always seemed to treat my sister well, kept her happy, and never …show more content…
Death is something that I wish would not exists. However that’s impossible. My grandmother was one of my best friends, and losing her this year changed a lot for not only myself, but my entire family. I hate to say that it did change my life in some negative ways, but I have found that it has changed it in a lot of good ways as well. I spent almost every weekend with my grandma as a young child, and even with my busy high school schedule, I enjoyed taking time off just to go visit her. The day that we lost her was tragic, as it is when you lose anyone. We mourned for several days, wishing that we could have one more chance to talk to her again. As we still wish and pray for that day we get to reunite, my entire family has also realized what death can do for people. My grandmother loved everyone she came in contact with, and ever since that last day with her, my entire family has began to live life like she did. We have all grown closer because of her, we call each other just to check and make sure everyone is doing okay. Because of the lost of such a great women, I have also grown closer with many relatives who each loved her just like I

    Although I always bothered her and was probably the most annoying little sister ever, whenever I needed anything I went to her and she helped me without any objection. She was basically like my third parent. I didn’t realize how much she actually did for me until she moved out. Since my sister was born first, my parents were a lot more strict with her than they were with me. She wasn’t allowed to do much and was raised to be way more responsible than I was.…

    remote. In my sister’s eyes I am her hero and am extremely thankful for her. Although in the beginning I did not realize how much she meant to me until a few years ago, I finally came to the realization that she is growing up and I will not be seeing much of her next year and the years after that. Even getting a goodnight kiss from her makes me know that I am doing my job as a big sister right. She has taught me many life lessons and has definitely shaped me into the person I have become…

    They are all always willing to help, to make friends with the outcasts, and to be there when people are in need.
