With just a year between us, it was an inevitability to be mistaken for twins and it didn’t help that my mom dressed us identically!! I honestly did not see the resemblance, but it did make our high school years quite amusing! We were mistaken for each other so frequently that people eventually started searching for things to tell us apart and in that, though we look so similar…we discovered so many things that were different!
One had long hair; the others hair was short. One was always smiling; the other was a little stern. One was shy and reserved; the other was quite outspoken…an extrovert. One was quiet; while the other was loud…the list goes on!
So, you see…We’re the same, but different, you and I…The same blood runs through our veins, same beginnings, same heritage…Same brother, same sisters…same yesterdays….and even though the tomorrows that greet us may be different; it’s the same in us both that helps us embrace the different! For in this world, each individual holds in them a key the other doesn’t have…and it is in that difference that we start to rely…and that is the difference we come to celebrate!!
