Sisters


I just want to brag about my sister for a minute. She's awesome! When we were younger we didn't always get along the best. We are nearly 4 years apart, which can make a big difference when the "middle school" years roll around. But now...we're as close as two women can be. She can always find a way to uplift me, compliment me, encourage me, correct me, laugh with me, and, cry with me.

She is a new mom this year to a gorgeous baby girl, Abigail Elizabeth. I remember being a new mom for the first time and struggling to know which way was up. I'm so glad that I can be here to support her and be with her for this exciting time. And the best part of Rach having a baby within the same year I did is that our girls will have the opportunity to have a relationship like I do with my sister.




She is also an amazing Aunt. Dare I even say , the best Aunt. My kids love her! She is always more than willing to play with them, wake up early with them, and keep them entertained. She has come to rescue my sanity more times than I can begin to count. I can't even begin to imagine my life without her.




I love that I have another person to be raw with. I can share all my crazy with her and know she's going no where. I pray that one day Ella will get a sister she can totally rely on. Because of the relationship I have with my sister, it has become so important to me that James and I adopt one day. I believe that each girl needs a sister!


I sure am blessed to have mine!



Today I'm linking up with Emily for my "Embrace the Moment"
