2 super special gals in my life have birthdays a day apart from each other. i've been writing, deleting, writing some more on this post; having a hard time finding the right words. i love you both & hope you had wonderful birthdays & a great 2010!
you welcomed me as your sister with open arms, even though i could be a less than stellar roomie sometimes (sorry about that). thank you.
i loved our late night talks when justin wasn't home about anything & everything. i do treasure those times when we really got to know each other. i love you.
sometimes, when ben & gracie are playing i often wonder if that is how you & justin were growing up. he loves her so & wants to protect her just like your big brother always has & still does.
christmas was a wonderful time for us all together. the kiddos really had fun playing with their auntie jen. there's some miles between us now, but we'll be planning trips to visit you & mike in florida(when it gets a bit warmer down there :) )
today at papaw's i was looking through pictures of all of us through the years.
what memories we have! thank you for being there by my side through them all. you are someone whom i could spend a bazillon days with and always have fun. we both have that odd sense of humor that many don't get (what's wrong with people?).
i miss you little lady & i'm here for you for whenever & for whatever, always remember that. i love ya.
to you both:
i've watched you both grow into such amazing, successful young women that i really do admire. there are no challenges that i've seen either of you back down from (you go girlies!). you both stand up for what you believe in & speak your mind. i'm glad my kiddos have such awesome aunties to look up to!
lots of love,
