Tell It On Tuesday, Week 3

So… guess what??

I have sisters… 4 of them… and they are the same age. Yes, you are reading that right. I was lucky enough to grow up with quadruplet sisters.

Who am I kidding? I hated it for a good while. I got lost a lot within the crowd of Sunday girls. BUT it is a favorite thing about my life and I love the fact it is part of my identity. I mean, I have four amazingly talented and beautiful best friends! I really could not have been blessed any more (except to have a brother. ha!). They are four of probably  about ten people I can trust with the most of me. We have been through sooooo much together and, sadly, we have dealt with things while we were apart from each other. I have only been back home for a little under two years and have watched them take on so much. I couldn’t be more proud of their strength and wonderful sense of humor through everything. I admire each of them for many, many reasons and am grateful for them for so many more! They turn 23 on Thanksgiving day. How fitting? ;) Here are a few photos I have gathered today. There aren’t any old ones because I don’t have any with me… but they will probably come later.

Here’s to you, gorgeous, wonderful girls. I pray that your 24th year will be the most revealing, challenging, and beautiful year yet. I hope you learn tons about who you are and even more about where you want to be. Always know, I am here to talk things out with you or just to listen. I love you more than I could describe to you. You know this, but I never want to stop telling you that. Besides, you know I always have to remind you… “I’m the BIG STISTER!” ;)

love, erin
