Today is my little sister’s birthday.
and as such, today’s post is dedicated to her
and to that beautiful thing called sisterhood.
Happy birthday! Lemme say this, You’re growing too fast!, Now, I know that I never actually admit my love to you, and have a bad habit of teasing you and putting you down at times, but I’m just not the mushy, sweet kind of person.Which is why it’s easier to say such things in writing than show in actions. So, this letter’s gonna be full of advice and well wishes.
First of all, I’m sorry – I’m sorry if at times I hurt your feelings and make you feel bad, whether it’s intentional or on accident. I’m sorry that I don’t tell you often enough that I love you and I’m so blessed to have you as my sister. I’m sorry for not being there at times when you needed me most. I’m sorry for a lot of things I may have done or said, so I hope you forgive me. Because as we grow up into adults, our relationship will change, and I hope it becomes stronger with time!
You’re such an amazing person, that sometimes, it humbles me so deeply. You’re so sweet and kind and beautiful , from both the outside and inside. You’re so talented and caring. Your passion for Christ is amazing. You have a way with kids that many people can only wish for. In your simple ways, you gently make changes in the world and lives around you. One day, I know you will make an amazing wife and mother. In the end though, to be quite honest, there are not enough words in the world to describe how amazing I think you really are. I don’t want to inflate your pride by going on and on, but I do want to let you know that I do appreciate you, even though at times I may not be so good at showing it.
Thank you for being there for me, when I’m hungry sometimes late into the night :-). For doing little things for me to make my day a little easier. For standing up for me when people try to put me down. For all the times you made me laugh, or prayed for me when I closed up and battled my problems on my own, usually pushing you away. Thank you for everything.
I wish you so many blessings, not only for this year, but for the rest of your life. You deserve only the very best!
As you mature into a young woman, do your best to stay with the Lord. Don’t let your friends, or the media, or anyone tell you who to be, how to dress, what to do. God has a plan for you, one that is beyond anything we can imagine or plan. Be your own person, even if you’re the only one standing in a room full of people sitting, stand proud and speak up, because God is with you and he will give you the strength to do the right thing and reward you in the end. I know that sometimes it’s hard, staying pure and humble in today’s society, but it’s so worth it in the end. If you look straight ahead and go on with a prayer in mind and Jesus by your side, you can’t go wrong. People will try to break you, sometimes through hidden motives, sometimes point blank, but I pray that God helps you stand strong. Remember, the only person worth impressing or living for is God. One of my life mottos is “Living for the audience of One.” He’s the only one who matters. He’s the one who you should impress, befriend and love. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks of you, they’re just people.
Lastly, don’t let any of those fake expectations get in the way of your true beauty. Yes, there are beautiful people out there, but are they happy? Because I know that the prettiest girls are the happiest. 🙂
So, go out there and make a change. Become who you want to become. I know that you have a bright future ahead of you, you’ll touch many lives and help countless hearts. You’re so beautiful and amazing. You’re constantly in my prayers and in my heart. May God bless you abundantely. Happy 14years birthday.
Dedicating this to my two lovely sisters(and brother)
A sister is someone who loves you from the heart,
No matter how much you argue you cannot be drawn apart.
She is a joy that cannot be taken away,
Once she enters your life, she is there to stay.
A friend who helps you through difficult times,
Her comforting words are worth much more thandimes.
A partner who fills your life with laughs and smile,
These memories last for miles and miles.
When she is by your side, the world is filled with life,
When she is not around, your days are full of strife.
A sister is a blessing, who fills your heart with love,
She flies with you in life with the beauty of a dove.
A companion to whom you can express your feelings,
She doesn’t let you get bored at family dealings.
Whether you are having your ups or downs,
She always helps you with a smile and never frowns.
With a sister you cannot have a grudge,
She is as sweet as chocolate and as smooth as fudge.
Having a sister is not just a trend,
It is knowing you can always turn to her, your best friend.
