~Sister to sister we will always be, A couple of nuts off the family tree~

She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child.~ Barbra Alpert

I just wanted to take the time to publicly thank my little sister Amanda for being the wonderful woman that she is! Amanda truly is (other than my husband) my very best friend in the entire world! I look up to and admire her so much, she truly is wise beyond her years. In reality I feel that she is MY big sister, not only because she is taller than me and I literally look up to her, but becuase she seems to be the one that always levels me out by putting life back into perspective. She gets me, deeper than almost anyone I know, I truly feel that when I feel deep happiness she can literally feel it too, and when I hurt she feels my pain. I feel so connected to her and really hope that she knows how much I love and appreciate her and all that she does for me.

I admire my sister for the woman she has become! She has been through so much in her life and has overcome her obsticles. She is the mother I dream to one day be, she is the wife that I strive to become, she is the sister to me that I hope I will always be able to be to her.

It was nice growing up with someone like you~someone to lean on, someone to count on...someone to tell on!!~Author Unknown

Thankyou Amanda for all of the wonderful memories we have made and for the many many to come, thanyou for always being honest with me even when it hurts, thankyou for being a pillar of strength to lean on, a sholder to cry on, a friend to count on, a listening ear, thankyou for patting me on the back when I have done something good and for kicking me in the butt when I need to go do something good. Thankyou for being my sister and for the fact that I know without a doubt in my mind that we will have this amazing relationship FOREVER and into Eternity. The lord has truly blessed me with you!

We know one another's faults, virtues, catastrophes, mortifications, triumphs, rivalries, desires, and how long we can each hang by our hands to a bar. We have been banded together under pack codes and tribal laws.~ Rose Macaulay

So you had me sobbing by the end of this, and for the first time in 3 months my crying has nothing to do with being prego.
Sissy, I love you so much! I am the luckiest girl alive to have a sister like you! You mean so much to me...more than you will ever no.
I pray that I have at least one more daughter so that Makenna can be blessed to have a sister the way I was.
Love you!
