Happy Birthday Sariah...



Isn't she beautiful!


Arms bundled...there Sariah was...even at three years old...now seventeen. My sister Sariah is one amazing person! From the day she was born ...she has broken the mold in our family! Such maturity and independents from such a young age...I remember her giving me valuable advice even at the stark age of five years old! But I was saying...from age three and for many many years...if ever I would get sick...even it was the slightest discomfort...there Sariah was...right by my side...arms bundled with blankets, pillows, snacks, movies...and even one of her stuffed animals from her treasured collection in her bedroom. She just pampered me! I've always felt pampered by Sariah...she now has gone on to make pampering her future career...in cosmetology...and we've all been pampered with her new skills! I had the privilege to be one of her first haircuts...and pedicures! She's a natural! But we already knew that!


Right after Mike had his accident...it had been a few nights since Mike had been in the hospital...and I was kind of having a hard time! That night I was staying at my family's house...in walked Sariah...arms bundled with things to pamper me! Pajamas...perfume....smiles...and hugs!


I don't know how to explain it...except...she is one amazing person...and meant to do big things in this world! Happy Seventeenth Birthday Sariah...Love you!
