This post is long overdue.
A year overdue, in fact.
As I was going through the archives (also known as my ancient emails) I found something.
Something that made me feel special. Written to me by someone special.

Jan 18, 2008 I received (along with my other sisters) an e-mail from Rachel. It said;

hey my sisters
you guys are super cool
i want you all to know i love you
krystle you are so in style
nicole you are so cool to go to school
natalie you are always nice
( even if you push me off tramps/ treehouses/ dishwashers/ rugs/ windows)
but i love you so much
i love all of you
with love
please write back
kiss kiss
love life
peace out.

How horrible I felt when I saw this. Did I ever write back? I can't remember.

Does my little sister know just how special I think she is? Does she know she is loved by her oldest sister? Does she know that this e-mail she sent me meant something? Does she know how good it makes me feel? Does she know that since I came across it I've read it every day?

So to redeem myself I asked all of our siblings to tell me the top 3 things they LOVE about our little Ray Ray. We'll start with the youngest;

Annabelle says-

" I like how she plays with me sometimes."

" I like that she is pretty."

" I like how she sings pretty except that it hurts my ears sometimes when she sings in the morning blow drying her hair."

Gordon says-

" She's Hilarious."

"Friendly as heck."

"She is always fun to be around."

Natalie says-

"She cracks me up."

"She's so photogenic, I'm jealous."

"She is actually very considerate of others' feelings."

Nicole says-

"She's friendly and cares about family, friends, and animals!"

"She's fun to hang out with, she can be so funny and goofy at times!"

"She's beautiful and has a funky sense of style!"

Chris says-

"She has killer snow boots."

"She's fun to play Mariokart with."

"She's easy to get along with."

I say-

"She isn't afraid to stand up for what she believes in."

"She has an amazing sense of humor. Literally she always has a smile on her face."

"She's beautiful. I use the word beautiful to describe someone who is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She has a beautiful soul."

Rachel, I hope you know how much our family adores you. I hope every minute of your life you realize that our family is not complete without you. I hope you know that your sisters love you, we respect you. I am so thankful for your example, and a huge part of me longs to be more like you. You are so kind and I can honestly say I am privileged to be your older sister. It is an honor and a blessing and I am thankful for you. I love you.

kiss kiss

love life

peace out.
