Today I am thankful for the bond my siblings and I share. I am thankful for Allie’s sense of humor, our goofiness together, and everything she teaches me about courage and perseverance. I am thankful for Andy’s passion and intensity for everything he puts his mind to. I am thankful that he always gives me a hard time and makes me laugh, and that he shows me (once in a while) that he really is a teddy bear under that tough exterior. I am thankful for Kristen’s big sister wisdom and I look up to how she is able to take everything in stride. I am thankful for everything she teaches me about compassion, thinking about others first, and listening to both sides before making judgements. Most of all I am thankful for the times we are all in the same place because there really is nothing else like it.
