“Of two sisters one is always the watcher, one the dancer.”
― Louise Glück
I found this quote perfectly fitting for my sister and I. Cheyenne has always been the watcher. While I was too busy gabbing away and vying for the spotlight Cheyenne was watching. She was the observer. The quiet one around strangers (and probably because I did the talking for her!) Her creativity was apparent at a very young age through her piano playing, art projects, and dancin’ skills.
When Cheyenne was little gal she hid bread around the house to snack on it later! She would get hair cuts JUST for the lollipop the barber gave her after. She has loved animals for as long as I can remember. She has always been the “sweet” little girl, and personally the one who I would have wanted to be friends with as a kid. She always talked about God and faith. I distinctly remember her reciting “The lord is my shepherd I shall lack nothing” through out the days, and she often said prayers for our family.As the adorable kid turned into a young lady she became the “nice” girl that was friends with everyone. She was a slow poke at getting ready for school in the mornings. I would often leave her behind at home as I drove off to high school and left her in the dust! ( Like I said…she was the nice one)
So today. On the 13th of July. I want this incredible 22 year old beautiful young free spirited woman to know that her big sister loves her. That I am SO proud of the young lady she has become…and that there is no one in this world who will ever understand my childhood exactly like she will. I know that whatever God has in store for you in the years to come will be great. You are incredible!…and I am so proud to call you my sister.
Oh yeah and the Korean kids I teach also wanted to wish you a very happy birthday (and I must admit they are pretty darn cute) :
