Happy Birthday

Today is my dear sister Kristen's birthday! Here are some things that I love about this wonderful woman!

K - Kind! You will never meet a kinder more giving person then Kristen. She is generous and sincerely considerate of others needs and well being!
R - Responsible! If you give Kristen a task, absolutley anything, you know that you can count on her to get it done and get it done right! I wish I was that steadfast in my responsibilites
I - Involved! I love that whenever I need to know what's going on with any member of my family, I can call Kristen! She knows whats happening with everyone and everything!
S - Selfless! This one makes me tear up because when I think of one word that describes Kristen to a "T", it is selfless. She serves people more then anyone I know and she does it because she loves us, not for the recognition or the praise - purely because she loves us. If only we could all be so Christ-like!
T - Twilight Addict! This is one thing that makes me smile and laugh about Kristen! She is so passionate about these books and I love that she has something in her life that gives her this much enjoyment and that can allow her to escape! We all know that we need something to help us escape!
E - Energetic! Kristen, is a very passionate person and is always full of a lot of energy! That energy oozes from her and I can't help getting up beat and happy when I am around her, or even just talking to her on the phone! I wish that I could bottle that energy and have it with me all the time!
N - Nurse Carol! Kristen got this nick name while we were growing up because when any of us were sick or hurt, Kristen was right there to take care of us and nurse us back to health. I guess that goes back to her selflessness and generosity! She will forever hold this title - she may not nurse my illnesses anymore, but she nurses my soul!
I don't know what I would do without this woman in my life! She is one of my truest and closest friends and I love her more then anything on this planet! Happy Birthday Kristen! I sure do love you!
