Here's to the older one


We were never the one to be mushy with one another. So I'll make this as short and as painless as possible. Most days when we were younger, we wanted to tear each other's head off, and even sometimes now, the same can be true. However, I'm glad that we have evolved to being able to spend prolonged amounts of time hanging out with each other without starting off Word War III. I'm grateful to have you as an older brother even if I don't always show it. Thanks for feeding me, for driving me around, and for sending me links to lame things on the Internet. I will always have your back, no matter what you choose to do in this life — Kimberly

Happy 23rd Birthday! Even with the large age gap between us you have taken it upon yourself to not just be a good older brother, by being responsible and watching over me, but to befriend your youngest sister as well. You've found an abundance of ways to bridge that age gap with things we have in common and activities we both enjoy. You have taught me plenty in my 14 years and even though I'm growing up faster than you or anyone in our family would like, I'll always be your little sister. I constantly find myself looking to you for help even in my desire for independence and you have not failed to be a great older brother. So now all I have to say is thank you for everything!—Anne
