Letter to my sister

Hello everyone! I believe that some people should be recognized for what they do in many people’s lives. A sister is a person who’s been where you’ve been; someone you can call on when things aren’t going right. It is more than just family. A sister is a forever friend. My sister deserves to be recognized because she acts as another mother to me. When I’m around her I feel extremely good. I feel as if I can write a book about me and her relationship. We have the tightest bond no one can break and no matter any argument, we still love each other and nothing changes. I know that I can call on her if I need reassurance. The reason I am writing this tribute to my sister is because she is so special. She pulls through for not just herself but for the people around her. No matter what. These may be words on a screen, but the picture will show a lot of smiles and good times. Before you start reading the rest of this blog, I hope there is someone in your life that you have a good bond with and can always talk to at any time.

My sister and I have created this incredible bond with each other. She’s always smiling, active, and just being herself. She desires doing hair. She wants her own hair salon. She inspires me a lot. She tells me what’s right from wrong. Her mindset and attitude changes your day. You’ll step into her shoes any time you’re around her. She is a very good person to talk to. When you’re having a bad day, she will literally cheer you up with just her smile. Her smile is contagious. Even when she’s stressed or having a bad day, she manages to always have time for anyone. She’s great.

The brilliance and power doesn’t end. It will never end.

Jatavia, you have helped me become more brave. I’ve become a better person because of you. You helped me become successful so far. You told me it was counted steps into becoming who you really want to be. I’ve taken some of those counted steps because of you. I became salutatorian of my 8th grade class because of all the help you have given me. I don’t know what I would do if I ever lost you. You’re a really special person in my life. You play a big part of it. You are amazing. In every way. I know that we’ve had ups and downs but you’re my sister. It comes like that. I just want you to know that I love you and you deserve a happy future and I’m going to give you that.
