18 years ago my baby sister Sidney was born..
I have to say the past 18 years of MY life have been the best since SHE'S been in it!
Let me tell you a little about Sidney..she is the sweetest, most kindest and talented young woman (weird to say!) around. I love being around her because she is so positive and happy. She almost always has a smile on her face.
I have really enjoyed watching my sister grow up through the years. There are times when her maturity shines through, and there are also times where I remember she is still on the stepping stones on her life and getting where she needs to be. I remember when she decided to go away for college. I was scared for her..I wanted to put her under my wing and protect her from this big, bad world.
I know these next six weeks before she leaves for college is going to be bittersweet. I want to make the most of our time together, but I don't want to see her off. I know we will only be 2 hours away from eachother, but I've always felt like Sidney and I had a very close knit bond. I've always wanted to take care of her..and I feel like I am going to have to let that go a bit. I have faith in her though. I hope I've been a good enough role model for her.
My sisters are awesome.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Pookie! I love you and I'm sooo proud of you!!
