18 Years Already

Today is my sister’s birthday! I can’t believe it’s been 18 years already, but that’s how time works.

It seems like yesterday that we were all begging mom not to name you Darrylle. I begged her and begged her to give you a girl name. Haha. I can’t imagine you with any other name, now. I remember anxiously awaiting the one who would make me a big sister. I was so excited that I colored a full size portrait of what I thought you would look like in art class. It was mostly just your head because babies are always wrapped in blankets, obviously.

Now you’ve graduated and become an adult! There’s a great, big world out there. I hope you always remember that God is bigger still.

It’s been an honor to watch you grow up into the woman you are today. I love you, sis.
