I love my Sister!


My older sister and I haven't always gotten along fantastically, but for the most part we've always been pretty good friends. Now that we're adults and are married with families, we have more in common than ever, and I like her more and more as time goes on!

Kristie and her family were going on vacation this week, so Friday they decided to drive to our house, stop and sleep and drive the rest of the way to Washington for their trip. (side note: I'm so jealous all my family are together right now except us.... how crappy!) So anyway, she got off work late Friday and they ended up driving all night and getting here at *get this* six o'clock in the morning! So instead of just sleeping for a couple hours and driving the 14 or 15 hours to my parents', I talked them in to staying Saturday and leaving early Sunday. I'm so glad they did! We had such a great time!

Here are a few things that I love about my sister:

1. I can be as stupid, dorky, silly or retarded as I want to be and she still thinks I'm hillarious!

2. We can talk about anything, and she gets me. She totally understands what I'm trying to say, thats so refreshing!

3. She's super complimentary, if she likes what I'm wearing--she says so! If she likes my paper towels, she says so! I love that!

4. We laugh really hard, I mean REALLY really hard! I can laugh with her more than any other person, its awesome!

5. She likes my kids and tells me so. I know I'm shallow and insecure but it's nice to be reassured that you have good kids and you're doing a good job.

6. I don't have to put on a show for her. I don't have to worry if I say something wrong or dumb, I don't have to "act" the part, I can be completely me and at ease and she will never make fun of me or treat me badly.

7. She makes me want to be better, little does she know, but I pay attention to the things she does; and she's constantly teaching me a better way to be, I love her for that!

Well, I could go on and on, but sufficeth to say, I LOVE HER!
Kristie, you're so amazing, thank you for being such a great sister! I can't wait to see you next weekend! Yippee!

4 awesomeness!...and attractiveness!:

What wonderful things sisters are! All those nice things you said, I could easily say about my sisters. I always think it's God's gift to help us get through this existence.

Very sweet. Sisters can be the greatest blessings, can't they?

Okay, are you trying to make me cry!! Haha, you are too sweet, it really made me feel so good, now if you could post something like that once a week for me, I could be less self conscious, and not so hard on myself! Can't wait to see you, miss you! love you!
