People let me tell ya 'bout my best friend

This would be her. My sister Emma.

I am so grateful to have a little sister like Emma. She is selfless, funny, beautiful, helpful, smart, and loving. Wow, that's a lot of adjectives.

She has been there for me in the hardest of hard. She has helped with Cash more than I could ever dream of. She has given me someone to talk to, someone to laugh with, laugh at, and someone to just be my friend.

She just recently turned sixteen. Which is so exciting, but so sad all in the same breath.
I am so excited for her to be growing up and getting to do all the fun things teenagers do. She will be starting school tomorrow, getting her licence, going on dates, all fun things. But I can't help but be sad. Will she get so wrapped up in the whirlwind that is high school, and forget about me? Will she get tired of hanging out with her lame, older sister and nephew at home? Will she get a boyfriend and devote all her time to him?

These things scare me, but I know they are a part of life. I now know how heartbroken my parents must have felt through my teenage years. I just hope she will be smart and learn from my mistakes, and go on to do something that she can take pride in.

Sister, I love you, and I thank you for all you do for me. You are the best sister and Auntie anyone could ask for.

This night Cash would not sleep and not calm down for anyone. Auntie Em held him, and he fell asleep on her shoulder. Cash adores Auntie Em.

  1. What a nice tribute to your sister. My little sister is starting high school this year...I can't believe it! She's 11 years younger than me, so we aren't quite "friends" just yet (someday!) but I still love spending time with her. :)
