So I realize that I am a couple of days late, but better late than never. Today is a really special "Love You" because my amazing little sister, Jenny, is here to share what she is loving about herself today. It is hard to write a brief little intro to Jenny because she is so many things.....sister, best friend, future doctor, comedian, and the list goes on. She has seen me at my best and at my worst, and I am so thankful to have her in my life. Sitting here getting crocodile tears just thinking about how much she means to me, so to avoid having a Monday morning cry fest, I will let Jenny start doing some sharing.
"1. I love how close I am with my family. It's rare for a day to go by that I don't talk to or group text with them. Being with or talking to my mom, dad, brother, sister, or brother-in-law instantly makes me a happier person. I am blessed to have each one of them in my life.
2. I love how I can laugh about anything. I believe there is something funny, wonderful, or beautiful in every moment of life, and I strive to find it. Laughter is a gift and I never intend on wasting it.
3. I love that I believe in making mistakes and learning from each one of them. The best way to live life is by trying things and praying that they will work out. And if they don't...I believe there is a reason. How else do you learn?
4. I love the decision I have made to become a Pediatrician when I "grow up". Working with children is one of the most enlightening experiences, and I feel blessed that I will have the opportunity to impact their lives every day."
Could not have shared better loves than these right here. I might have added that she loves to sing in the car at the top of her lungs regardless of how it sounds, she loves that she is the best friend around, and she loves that she tells it how it is. Having been a part of each of her last 25 years, I can tell you that we do have a close family, and Jenny is often the source of much laughter with her quick wit and infectious laugh. My mom called me the other day, just to tell me to call Jenny because she was being especially hilarious that day, and I can always count on her to lift my spirits. This fun humor comes in handy with the mistakes she likes to make, though they seem far and few between, because she really has seemed to embrace how my parents have taught us to learn from our mistakes and move on. And the thing that makes me smile the most about her loves is that they all fit together to support her life dream of being a Pediatrician. With her love of family, fun humor, understanding that we all make mistakes, compassion, and incredible intelligence, I cannot imagine the joy her patients and families will experience as they put their lives in her care. Glad you are showing yourself some love today Jenny, and I hope you know how much love your family and friends have for you. Happy Monday...lotsa love...J
P.S. If the Pediatrician thing does not work out, Jenny has hopes to consult bloggers on unique poses they can strike to make those outfit pictures extra special. She has given you a sample above of some of her signature moves.
