If I could apologize to someone for anything it would be to my sister for not always being courteous of her time. My sister and I are 5 years apart. I am a spirited teenage girl and she is an ambitious and loving sister who lives away from home. She visits home often, so we get to spend hours of amusement together. However, there are times when I have plans with friends and she wants to hang out with her friends. So we spend quality time together, but our schedules don’t always accommodate each other.

I tried to be positive in telling her I would not be able to carry out our plans, yet she was disappointed. My generous sister understood even though she was looking forward to our day together. Looking back on that time, I’ve realized to cherish the special moments I have with her. I should always value our time together, for as we grow older our time together may become farther and fewer between.
