26 years ago today my baby sister was born. She was my little miracle because I wished and prayed for a sister even though the doctor told my parents it was going to be a boy. Even before they were headed to the hospital I told my parents at the front door “don’t bring it home unless it’s a girl”. I laugh still to this day over my comment even though I was only 7 years old at the time.

To everyone’s amazement, except for mine, a beautiful baby girl was born 3 hours later. To this day I thank god for bringing my sister into my life and still do as I promised god and take care of her as much as I can even though she is married. I still love her with all of my heart and soul, she is one of my best friends who I can go to when I need a shoulder to lean on and I am here for her when she needs to vent.
Our paths may have gone in two very different directions but where ever we are we are always in each others minds and hearts. I would not change anything in my life because to do so would mean I might change the course of not having my baby sister. Not having my little miracle in my life is not an option.
So, to my sister whom I love more than myself Happy Birthday. I am sorry that I cannot get you a present but I can give you my love.


My best friend

Growing up, you don’t see your parents as being your friends. They’re your parents. Well, going through all of the milestones in my life taught me that your parents can be your friends and sometimes your best friend. For me, my mom is my best friend. I can tell her anything, I know she will not judge me for any mistakes I make just guide me, and she is awesome to hang out with in everything we do. So yesterday that’s what I did, I hung out with my best friend. She has been overloaded with work lately and has been working 6 out of 7 days of the week and most of the time she is exhausted, so when she asked me if I wanted to catch up on our shows that we missed I jumped at the chance. That meant no computers, no books, no phones and no homework just me and my mom, and yesterday was a great day.
