"Sisters is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown it becomes the strongest relationship."
The quote about sisters describes us PERFECTLY. We've always gotten along, but I won't deny the countless fights over who left the bathroom dirty, who used my shampoo, who broke the chi flat iron, us stealing each other's clothes- which finally resulted in my parents putting a lock WITH a key on my bedroom door. (We both learned early on in life how to pick a lock from our older brother..) There was a period of time I would find my clothes worn and usually dirty balled up and jammed into various hiding places she never though I'd find: under beds, couch cushions, backs of closets, in between mattresses etc. We've yelled, called names, pulled hair, hit, spit, tackled, spanked, pinched and bruised each other. She's vicious.
I have never wanted to pinch someone so much, and I also couldn't love her more than I already do. The memories we have together are priceless. For every one fight we've had, there are two hilarious stories to match. As we've grown up together we have learned that not only are we sisters, but we are true best friends.
My sister forever, Always my friend.
Fatalie has proven to be a real star. Every challenge she has ever had she goes above and beyond to complete. She's the lead as Rizzo in her school play Grease, a student body officer, a straight A student, a fashionista, an amazing singer, a complete tender heart, and the most beautiful girl on the inside and out. Her red hair is her trademark. She wears a sombrero or combat boots and pulls it off like you've never seen!
Fatalie got accepted to BYU-Hawaii on Sunday and I want her to know how proud I am of her. This last week has been an emotional one for me without her knowing. The day she told me she was sending her acceptance letter I laid in bed that night and cried. I cried because I'm so happy for her and I'm so happy she's my sister. BUT. I also realized the little 4 year old red-afro head that has the dino band-aids on her knees is all grown up. I can't imagine life without my sister down the hall, in the other room or down the street at school. Hopefully my sibling living in Hawaii will result in many tropical vacations for me and Spencer in the future..
