My sister

My little sister is 7 years younger than me.  The first 15 years or so of her life we were not exactly the closest.  She’s very sweet natured, but more emotional than I am, and often was a bit more “high maintenance” and needed more attention growing up.  Due to the age difference, I saw her as an annoyance often.

(Don’t worry- this isn’t a sister-bashing session!)

Once she began to enter later teen years, our relationship started to grow.  In fact, I now consider her one of my closest friends.  I truly hope the boys grow up to be as close as she and I are.

She has grown into such a beautiful, intelligent, compassionate, and strong young woman.  I’m very proud of her.  She is amazing with the boys and they absolutely adore her!  Now, keep in mind that she is a 21 year old college student and she chose to drive 3 hours this weekend to spend time with us.  What college student does that!?  And she comes as often as she can.  Thankfully we see her once a month usually.

I can’t wait to see the kind of mother she will be one day.  She is certainly the best Auntie I’ve ever known!
