One afternoon, we had a power outage and I found myself with nothing to do without electricity. My phone battery had just died so I was just sitting on the sofa, watching the rain pitter patter on the glass. It was peaceful, but I also wanted something to do. 

It was then that I noticed a book on our coffee table, it was the book by Alex and Toni Gonzaga, Sissums. I thought it was a very random book to see but I decided it would be interesting to peruse the book.

Rule # 10: My sister is my travel companion

It wasn’t long before I found myself smiling and holding back laughter thanks to the book. Knowing how funny Alex and Toni Gonzaga are together, their book did not disappoint. what struck me much more than the humor, however, was the close relationship the two definitely had with each other. I actually have two sisters myself, so I could really relate to the book.

Their book featured a lot of stories but I especially liked their entry on traveling together. In their book, they talked about how traveling can be such an enjoyable experience! They wrote about the laughter and the goofing around the two of them would do and I couldn’t help but remember my own siblings.

I think it was quite a blessing that we had that power outage that one day because it reminded me to love and appreciate my sisters. They are, as Alex and Toni put it, my playmates/bullies/lawyers/travel companion/partner in crime and so on! :) 

My sissums!
