I know God loves me because...


He gave me...a best friend...a shopping buddy...a playmate...a soundboard...someone who loves me unconditionally... A sister!! My sister(most affectionately called "De" in our house) and I are super close. We were born only a year and 13 days apart. We have almost always been the best of friends. As we got older and she moved away, I vividly remember being devastated thinking how do I function without my other hand. We have both since found our better halves, our hubbies...but to me she is still my female bestest friend. She continually amazes me at all she has accomplished and by the girth of her hidden strength.
She came to visit us here in TX on a surprise birthday present from her cute hubby. We had a GReat time. We shopped our little hearts out and loved just hanging out. I love that she got to see what we're all about here in Corpus. And even got to relax a bit from her usual hectic schedule.
Anyhow...Happy Birthday De...we love you soooo much!!

How fun for sisters:) You make me wish that I were closer in age to my sisters, although I think your mom was CRAZY for having kids a year apart. Being pregnant and watching Sierra has made me definitely want to have all my children at least two years apart:) But yay for awesome sisters!
