I've been thinking about you a lot lately. It is probably because of the time of year- your birthday was last week. I wanted to take a minute to tell you exactly what I think of you.
You are Wonderful.
That's right. You heard me. With a capital W, too. Be complimented-- I dare you.
There are many reasons why I love you- among them are that you are smart, kind, gracious, and sweet. But most of all I love your heart. I love the fact that you are one of the most accepting and least critical people I have ever known. I love your heart, and that you celebrate with people. I love that I can talk to you about things and you get me.
I love that I got to grow up with you leading the way. I have admired and looked up to you since I was a couple weeks old (yeah, you know the pictures, where my little eyes were bugging out of my head with you peering down at me-- how come you got to be a cute infant, and I resembled an insect???).
I appreciate your creative spirit and desire to be a Godly woman. I think you are brilliant and original- you inspire me to think outside the box. I feel so blessed to be your little sister, and I am a better person for the time we have spent together. I look forward to future times together, and to being mommies together one day :)
Thank you for sticking with me through thick and thin (literally, ha). And thank you for being you.
