Dear Charnae: A Letter To My Little Sister.

Dear Charnae,

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!

LOVE,

-B

  1. I can see this post was beautifully thought out and from the heart. Which just so happens to be the most beautiful part of the human body. Wish my siblings would do this for me. 💖
