For my sister ~ Sharla Anne~

So I know that this is late birthday post to my sister. And I am so sorry but of course I wouldn't forget to do it even if it is late!


I have so many wonderful things to say about my sister Sharla. She is such a kind hearted, genuine person. She has a wonderful sense of calmness that surrounds her and I truly admire that about her! She has strength and is very kind hearted towards others. She really is such a good person and I love her so much!

Shar and I have so many wonderful memories together. We have always been close and she has ALWAYS been one of my Best friends! My very favorite memory of Sharla is something that I treasure so much. I got really sick one year at girls camp and caused everyone quit a scare. I was about 14 years old and Sharla was about 10-11 ish. When I got home there was a cute letter sealed and tucked under my bedroom door. I opened it and it had a square cutout of her lips she had imprinted on the paper with lipstick. The letter read "Put this where you hurt the most and know that I will always love you and I hope it makes you feel better" It was so sweet and tender. I remember crying and I still have it to this day!

Shequarla ~(this is what I call her)
You have always been somebody I have looked up to. You have courage and strength that I wish I could have too! You are such a good mother and example of patience with your children. You and I have shared so much and always had so much fun together. I am so thankful for such a wonderful sister and friend! I love reminiscing about "Huck Finn" (remember?) Our late nights giggling, staying up in the van, our long talks, our honesty with each other, teasing "Jeremy's twin" (get it?) , shooting ground squirrels at the cabin, pretending we were twins, sleeping on the tramp, sharing clothes, tubing in the snow, sledding, "sweet nougat and caramel"(remember?), laughing, crying together, Sharing mothering experiences, you cooking for me while I was prego, ("French Toast sounds kind of good, but I don't know?") and much much more!! Not a day goes by that I am not grateful for wonderful sisters, for you as my sister! I love you so much Shar and hope you had the best birthday ever!! I miss you sooooo much! Happy Birthday!!
