To my little sister (because you’ll always be my little sister),
Happy 21st Birthday Rou! Wow, how are you already 21?
I can’t wait to celebrate your birthday with you this weekend, but in the meantime there are a few things I want you to know.
I want you to know that there is no one I would have rather grown up with.
I will always remember our childhood, making mud pies in the garden, swimming like ‘dolphins’ in the sea and watching Arthur after school. Fun times, right? I wouldn’t swap them for the world.
I want you to know that you still have your whole life ahead of you and I know that you can do anything you put your mind to. So please never give up on your dreams, I believe in you.
I know that you are braver and stronger and smarter than you think. You really are.
You stand up for what you believe in and you stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. But please never forget to stand up for yourself.
Whatever life throws at you, you are never alone (besides you are not Kevin McCallister).
You love with your whole heart and are one of the kindest people I know. And you know what? I admire you for it.
You are amazing and beautiful, I hope you know that. You deserve nothing but the best, and I truly mean that.
We might not always see eye to eye, but I want you to know just how much I love you. I really love you little sis, more than you will ever know.
I pinky promise that I’ll always be there for you, no matter what.
With all my love,
P.S. My name is Jeff!
