Day 10:

Today I am thankful for:

  • Kristen.  I am thankful for her big sister wisdom and for teaching me how to listen openly to both sides of an issue.  I am thankful for how she taught me to fight for what I believe in.  I am thankful for the times we get to spend together, since we are not in the same state very often.  I am thankful that she married a great guy who brings out the best in her, and that the two of them make super cute kids.  I am thankful for the memories we have from our childhood.  I could go on about those memories for days.
  • Andy.  I am thankful that even though he always gives me a hard time, I am still always able to get to the core of his softy side. I am thankful that he models the importance of going after his dreams.  I am thankful that he lets me hug him (often) and that he also lets me give him every nickname in the book.  I am thankful that he is serving our country because he is everything a soldier should be; honorable, loyal, humble, and a leader.
  • Allie.  I am thankful that she showed me what it means to return to life after life happens.  I am thankful that even though she says she hates it when I kiss her and bug her, I know that she loves it deep down.  I am thankful that we had the opportunity to share the sport of gymnastics growing up.  I am thankful that we can fight one minute and be laughing our heads off the next.  I am thankful that she calls me her Biffle Siffle.

I am thankful for the bond that the four of us share.  The best thing in the world is when we all get to be together in the same place.  The laughter when that happens is unlike anything else.  I thank my lucky stars everyday that I share healthy, happy, close relationships with my siblings.  Those three people mean the world to me and I would do anything for any one of them.
