Today is my sister’s 24th birthday and I’d like to dedicate this post to her.
Growing up with three younger siblings is not easy. The silent expectation that you’re supposed to leave good marks so your siblings could follow your footsteps can be pretty tough. Up until now, I’m not sure if I have been a good role model to them but who cares, I know in my bones that I have been a good sister and I will always be — even if I can be a pain in the ass sometimes. But that’s normal I guess.
My sister, Kimmy and I grew up together, considering our one and a half year age gap. We sometimes clash because of our differences but I’m glad that we have managed to keep our bond intact. We view things in different perspectives, this often leads to arguments and petty fights but at the end of the day, we’re still sisters.
We have one thing in common though, we both love to read, although we lean towards different genres. She’s more into YA novels while I prefer the good old classics and I would take a Plath or Neruda book any minute while she would rather read Harry Potter and Twilight but we both love Summer Sisters and White Oleander, and any Nora Roberts or Jude Deveraux books.
My sister is amazing and she’s fun to be with. I think her profession suits her character. She’s compassionate and caring. She’s very generous and thoughtful too. She can be stubborn though but all in all, she’s a strong woman with a kind heart. She makes a pretty damn good nurse.
My wish for her birthday is good health, happiness and success. I pray to God to keep her safe always, and give her the job she wants for her to be happy. (and rich! lol)
Happy Birthday Bebe Lurve! I love you to bits and pieces.
