…words we all should learn to live by:
I loved sleep away camp.
Our church would take our youth group to Summer’s Best Two Weeks (SB2W) in Boswell, PA.
We would bike, hike, rock climb…
I loved the Blob…
I loved boys!
In our house, we weren’t allowed to date until we were sixteen, which made me want them more.
My big sister wasn’t as “boy crazy” as me.
This is my first tag, and I would like to thank Sheetal Bhardwaj who has been an active supporter of my blog and an uplifting writer and fellow blogger. I am truly inspired by her voice, words, tone, and willingness to share her insight, praise, and admiration with others. Please take the time to visit her blog The Glitters of Life and be inspired as well.
When our little sister was born, my big sister and I were so happy!
I was six and she was ten.
I don’t remember much about my mom being pregnant, but I remember when we brought our baby sister home.
She was so small and sweet.
We loved her.
It had been five years since my big sister completed our family and a new addition just brought us closer.
My sister was going to a new school.
That made me sad.
She graduated 5th grade.
That made me happy.
Even though she was changing schools, we still had to walk to our bus stops together.
Hers was a little further down the street, but she would drop me off with the crossing guard, and then go to her stop.
I am overwhelmed with the idea that someone thinks I deserve to receive this award. This is the 2nd award that I have received in my blogging career, and I feel so honored! I cannot believe “a girl named Kirti” has nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Please check out her blog. She is such a strong writer; she’s real, open-minded, creative, and of course inspiring. Thank you so much Kirti for considering me for this award.
My big sister was so quiet.
I always felt like I was so loud compared to her.
I would talk and talk, but she would listen. She didn’t say much, but she always listened.
She was a rider.
If anyone said anything to me or tried to hurt me, she would always stick up for me.
I remember being bullied in school.
She threatened to hurt this guy if he ever said anything else to me.
And he never did.
Sometimes, I forget that I have a older sister…
I can’t remember what she looks like, sometimes…
I surpress my childhood, for fear of remembering what a huge part of my life she was…
…and now that part of me is missing.
The five things that I am grateful for today are:
I am so blessed, and it is all because of God! I take no responsibility for the good in my life outside of him!
