This is a photo of me and my youngest sister, Kate.
Tomorrow is her birthday, and you better believe I'm thankful she was born.
If you've ever met her, you know what I mean. She's loud and funny and will not hesitate to tell you what's on her mind. When she sets her mind to something, you really don't want to stand in her way.
I'm thankful for the way she listens. More than once, I've called her in a bit of a panic because I just needed to talk something through with someone.
I'm thankful for the example she sets. She isn't really willing to compromise her beliefs for anything, and I really respect her for it.
I'm thankful for her fashion sense. She's helped me pick out countless outfits, and she's one of my go-to people when I need help making a decision about purchasing a new piece of clothing.
I'm thankful for her friendship. As anyone who has and/or is a sister knows, we have the weirdest ability to affect one another to the core with our words and actions. I'm thankful that Kate cares about me and my well-being and my ultimate good. It's one of the greatest blessings, for sure.
So here's to you, Katherine Ann Loyd. I'm thankful for you and for all the years we've been sisters. I hope you have a fantastic birthday, complete with a pool party and margaritas.
Who are you thankful for today?
