My sister, Marnie, and I are just a year and six days apart.
My Birthday? August 27. Hers? September 2.
To be honest, I was a really mean older sister to her.
I wouldn't let her be friends with my friends.
I wouldn't let her borrow my clothes.
I often said mean things to her.
I turned her away when she was nice to me... thinking she was annoying.
I thought she was trying to bother me, but little did I know.
If I could do it all over, I would.
We didn't actually become real friends until I moved away to attend college.
We've now been "friends" for 7 years, and I'm so thankful.
Last year, Marnie cried while she toasted me at an event.
The things she said were so sweet.
She said she always wanted to be like me.
She always looked up to me.
She always thought I was the perfect older sister.
It made me so proud to be her older sister.
I'm so blessed to have a sister like mine.
In just 49 days, my little sister is going to be married to the man of her dreams.
I can't wait to toast her, as her sister and maid of honor, on that special day.
In fact... she says I have to write out my toast...
Hey sister, are you sure I can't just use this?
