Today was my sister’s 19th birthday. It’s crazy to think this is her last year as a teenager. She always seemed so far apart in age from me, but soon she will be in her 20’s. Being the oldest, I never knew how much I could learn from her. The moment I became her big sister I learned what it felt like to care about someone more than myself. She taught me selflessness, or to laugh more at life and not take things so seriously. She made me realize that no matter how different we are, it’s not a bad thing. It’s what made us grow closer, by understanding each other in a new way. Who knew the person I’ve tried to be for her growing up, she would be the same for me.
Happy Birthday, to my sister, Sadie.
