Dear Delanie

At the ripe age of 7, I must say you're one of the most interesting people i know, little or're pretty awesome. I mean how many kids your age would choose ahi tuna over mac & cheese? Not many. I am so lucky to have you as a little sister, you were the baby alive I never had & the birth control I never had to take.. haha I am kidding!

& because i love you beyond words I have some simple sisterly advice: 
 Enjoy being seven.
Embrace your innocence. 
Listen to mom & dad, they're probably right.
Love God with your entire heart and serve him always.
Be kind even when others are not.
Remember you're beautiful.
Find beauty in everyone you meet.

I love our days together, you are forever keeping us on our toes. You truly have a beautiful spirit, you can lighten anyone's mood even on the worst of days, this is special. You're kind and beautiful inside and out..don't ever let anyone tell you any different.  You have made me a better person. Although you are still so small you have taught me so much. I am forever blessed to have you as my little sister.

I love you always Lanie,
