This post is a little late, but I still want to put it up because this is a post that is really close to my heart.
Both my sister and brothers birthdays are in the month of November so this post is not only to celebrate their birthdays, but also to share just how much love I have for my siblings. I must say that I feel very lucky to have the family I have. I know that some people don’t have siblings or maybe aren’t close to them, but I am SO thankful that God gave me these two wonderful humans : ) We are all SO DIFFERENT (I’m not even kidding) yet we have a bond and understanding that will forever keep us close. Like all siblings, we have our not-so-pretty-moments where we fight and argue, cry and yell…not so much anymore, but I’m still thankful for all those fights as weird as that sounds. Another thing I find fascinating is how each of us have a completely different relationship with our parents, it’s really special. And God bless my poor parents who have to deal with all our crazy different personalities haha!
First up is my brother, Nathen. He is my buddy and my partner in crime. Even though I annoyed the crap out of him when we were little (and probably still do) I know deep down he loves me haha! My brother and I have a special relationship…sometimes I feel like we understand each other on another level that not everyone in my family can relate to. I have so many awesome (and some not-so-awesome) memories of my brother and I growing up, since we are so close in age. I was such a little tomboy growing up…when I was a lot younger I use to tell my mom that it wasn’t fair that my dad and brother got to be outside with their shirts off…so what did I do? Yep…I ran around with no shirt like my dad and brother haha. Don’t worry…I’m over that. : ) Well Nathen, I know you will hate that I put you on the blog, but tough love dude. Happy Birthday and I love you so much!
Next up is my oh-so-beautiful sister, Jonna Jae. Oh where to even start with this lady? My sister and I weren’t always close growing up since we were 5 years apart and I was the annoying little sister who wanted to hang out with her friends all the time. But I can honestly say that my sister is now my best friend. We have grown so close and we have worked on understanding each other better than we use to. My sister and I are quite opposite! I could go on and on about how different we are…yet we are also very similar. Hard to explain really. I have always looked up to my sister, I have always pushed myself to accomplish the things she has and learn from her in every way. My sister is one of the strongest women I know, whether she believes it or not…she has been through things I couldn’t imagine going through. And through it all, she is still always there for me and always looks for the positive in every situation. Jonna, my beautiful sister inside and out, I love you so much and I’m so excited I get to see you tomorrow! I know it may seem that you have a long road ahead of you, but just know that God will always take care of you. Thank you for all that you do for me, words could never express how thankful I am for you. : )
