Not only would my life have been really boring (and lonely) without her, Jean has taught me more about getting along with another (imperfect) human being than any other person on the planet. We’ve even managed to apply some of those lessons to our relationship! More than a sibling, she’s become a friend. I’m thankful that I have someone I can talk to (read “complain to”) when things aren’t going my way. Sometimes, she even kicks me in the rear and says, “Grow up!” I don’t appreciate it at the time, but down the road, I come to see what she did and I am grateful.
