The Happiest of Birthdays

Today is Banan's 21st birthday. A day that we have all been waiting for and a day that seemed to come much quicker than it should have.

Banan, I'm so proud to be your sister. You are such a caring person and it has been so much fun to get to know you as an adult and not just as the children we were. It seems like just yesterday that I came down the stairs to find our grandpa there because Mom & Dad were at the hospital having you. I was, and still am, so happy to be an older sister and I could not have asked for a better younger sister.

I know that we have had more than our fair share of fights but I am glad we have made it past that to be friends.

You are such a determined, beautiful girl and have grown into a wonderful person. The little girl that used to suck her thumb still shines through in your stubbornness but the beautiful woman you are turning into shines through in everything you do.

I know you will always be there for me and I will always be there for you. We have grown to be the type of sisters that I always hoped we would be.

I am so lucky to be able to see you grow into the beautiful young woman you are and can't wait to see you continue to grow into a wonderful adult.

You are a great friend & sister. I love you, Banan.
