Birthdays and Blessings

My big sister is my absolute favorite, I adore her. Today is her birthday and there is truly nobody else I can think of that deserves a fun, relaxing day more than her. I doubt she will get that, because, well two beautiful, bubbly children and a busy full time job and a booming side business don't exactly lend themselves to a relaxing day. 

The last few years for my sister have not exactly been easy, she will be the first one to tell you that. But she is such a testament to how hardships build your character and build your faith.  She recognizes that these times, where she is tired and worn out and working every waking hour of the day and stressed, these times where she is being pushed to her limit are shaping who she is. It is hard to watch somebody you love so much be stretched thin and hurting, but it is equally such a blessing to watch somebody you so love rise above all circumstances and be the most inspiring, kind, loving person.

I love you so much, sweet sister. Thanks for letting me ruin all of your surprise parties, and open all of your birthday presents and do all of the bratty younger sister things and loving me anyways. Thank you for teaching me about life. Thank you for being you. I love you more than I can ever tell you!!
