Dear Sissy,

Whenever I am asked who my biggest role model is, my answer is always you. Even though you are just six years and one day older than I am, you are so wise beyond your years. You always give the best advice, even if it not what I want to hear. Your advice and guidance have truly made such an impact on who I am today and I could not be more thankful. You are so careful and well spoken and truly have a way to talking to me. Thank you for your words of wisdom.

Many of my favorite childhood memories are the ones that we have shared. I love how we can get together and look back and laugh about all the crazy things we did growing up. I will forever cherish all the memories that we made and will continue to make. Even though we are in different seasons and places of our lives right now, I know that we will continue to keep making memories that will last a life time. Thank you for making life fun.

Ever since I could walk, I would follow you around and look to you to see what I should be doing. I am so glad that I did that. You have taught me so many things about life, whether it be how to clean (you did a lot of teaching about this), or how to handle difficult situations that I have encountered. You have also taught me the importance of a college education, and I am so thankful I have you to turn to when college gets tough. I am so proud to go to the same college you did. The most important thing you have taught me is to not settle and the importance of finding true happiness. I have watched you bloom into this happy, successful adult (whether you want to admit it or not, you are now officially an adult). Thank you for all the life lessons.

I have said this to you a number of times, but I am so proud of you. Thank you for being the best role model I could ask for. Thank you for setting such a great example and supporting me and all of my crazy en devours. Thank you for being my best friend through everything. I would not be where I am today if it was not for you and your guidance. We are so different, but at the same time we understand each other, and I can not even put into words how thankful I am for that.

Love,

Your Little Sister
