I’m Lucky : I wouldn’t be 💩 without my Big Sister. And I’ll never forget it. Every time life gets hard I have the best example in the world on how easily it can be overcome. I’m so lucky to have such an amazing sister like that. The power and focus that orbits around her is contagious. You want to do your best just being near her. Who else could’ve gotten a 4.0 her whole life, in and out of foster care, with an abusive mother who almost killed her, drug addicted parents, a missing father, still got into all the collages, still collected all the scholarships and still made sure her free spirited artsy little sister with a learning disability ALSO got into collage too. She never let me fall, no matter how hard it got or what odds were stacked against us she had her hand out ready to lift me up every step higher she got on the ladder. I’m the type to help you out no matter where my position in life is, if you need me I’m there. I still remember all the whispers and bullying in church because we were so poor. She just ignored it, let your progress prove them wrong. I’m so lucky. Not only to have a sister like that but to have a strong drive in life, no matter how many times I fall I know we can always get up! It’s those who stay down that fail. Been down so many time it’s a natural reflex to stand back up. I hope y’all find that drive that keeps you moving forward. It may not come from something as devastating and difficult as our story but it’s out there, and it’s special. My family. Flaws and all I love them more than myself, I will keep getting up. Can’t help them stand if I’m sitting too.
