Words can not convey how much I love you, even though I may not express it as much as I possibly could, I hope that you know that I do with all of my heart. I was the only child for nearly a decade, and I remember begging mom and dad to have another child because I felt lonely. When you were born I saw perfection; you had the most beautiful eyes. I remember holding you as a baby and singing to you in the mirror and watching you smile; this was our way of connecting and forming a sisterhood. I couldn’t imagine my life without you, and I’m so happy that God chose you to be my little sister.
I want to apologize for not always being the cool sister growing up, but I felt I had to be responsible for you, this world can be very cruel. I always felt that I had to be perfect in your eyes and I also didn’t want you to make some of the mistakes that I’ve made in my life. You were always in the back of my mind when I made a decision because I always wanted to impress you. I strived to be the best woman that I could be because I knew you were watching me. You made me a better me, and I thank you.
I want you to know you are beautiful, intelligent, ambitious, resilient and host of other amazing qualities. Most importantly you are YOU. I can’t wait to see everything that you accomplish in your life because you are just getting started. I LOVE YOU!
