If you have a sister, you should consider yourself the luckiest person in the world. They are those friends who dont just drift into your life for a few years they're around for a lifetime. Sisters are the best type of friends. (I should know. I have four.)

Here are some telltale signs that you just happen to have the best sister ever:

You can FaceTime and do nothing

Day-to-day activities are better if you are doing them with her. You know you have the best sister when you can enjoy each other's company just by being on Skype together.

Shes down for your quirky adventures

When you want to take a quick weekend trip to go hiking, she doesnt think youre crazy she goes with you!

She likes your Instagram photos

You can count on her to like your posts, even if nobody else does.

She hangs your ugly gift on her wall

That weird hobby youve decided to try learning? She supports you. Not because its cute, but because its from you.

She forgives your stupid fights

Sometimes you say hurtful things when youre hungry. She gets that.

She knows how to deal with your feeling-fat days

On bad days shes your go-to girl. She knows exactly what to say to cheer you up.

She lets you borrow her favorite shirt

but only on very special occasions.

She lets you mess up

She doesnt guilt-trip you when you know you made a mistake; and while shell offer her advice, she knows its your choice.

but also calls you out on your crap

If youve gone too far, or when shes especially worried about you, she lets you know. Its the deepest sign of love, because she wants to save you (and others) from pain.

You can call her whenever

Just to say hello.

You get excited about just seeing her

Big plans or no plans, being together is always great!

You share a bed - even when there are other options

Because falling asleep while talking and cuddling is the best way.

She cuts your hair

Cutting your hair, giving you fashion or love advice, taking you camping, making you food whatever talent she has, she is willing to help you in whatever way she can.

Shes your cheerleader

She believes in you, and helps you fulfill your dreams. From helping you pack up your stuff to move to a new city to sending you an encouraging text when things dont go as planned, shes always on the sidelines cheering you on.

Its the greatest compliment when people tell you youre like each other

Because she is your role model!

She lets you borrow her makeup

Some days your eyeliner goes missing, and even though everyone says sharing eye makeup is a really bad idea, shes not too worried about it.

You cant wait to tell her about your newest find

That awesome cooking app you found? You cant wait to tell her about it, because you know shell love it too!

She inspires you to be better

She shows you how to be a better human, and you dont want to disappoint her.

Youll definitely be crazy cat ladies together

Theres no question if youll still be friends when youre old. Youll love each other forever!
