A Thank You To My Sister.

"Having A Sister Is Like Having A Best Friend You Can't Get Rid Of. You Know Whatever You Do, They'll Still Be There."

Having a sister is the greatest thing in the world. It’s a built-in best friend, someone to laugh with, to cry with, to stay up all night with, and someone who just completely and totally gets you. Carol Saline said, “Sisters function as safety nets in a chaotic world simply by being there for each other.” I couldn’t agree with this quote more. I honestly don’t know where I would be without my sister -- she is my anchor in this crazy ocean of a life. So, I want to say thank you.

Thank you for always helping me pick out an outfit, for reassuring me that it does look good even when I disagree, and for giving me clothes to borrow when I hate all of mine.

Thank you for always curling my hair and doing my makeup. I really should learn, but I love the time we spend together doing it (even if I don’t always show it), so I probably won’t.

Thank you for always cheering me up. You have seen me on my absolute, worst days, (I’m sorry for that), but you have helped me to get through each and every single one of them.

Thank you for always making me laugh. Our stupid jokes are what I live for, and I always appreciate the funny links you send at midnight for me to wake up to in the morning.

Thank you for dealing with my insanity. I know that I’m a lot to handle sometimes, and I truly appreciate your patience and understanding.

Thank you for your advice. You always seem to know what to say, whether I want to hear it or not, and you are definitely wise beyond your years.

Thank you for always being ready to watch Disney movies or go for a drive where we sing at the top of our lungs, and for correcting me on the song lyrics I improv.

To my sister, thank you so much. There are countless things about you that I am thankful for, this is just a start. You’re the best.

Love you always,

Your sister

The Mystery Of The Gospel

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
