It has been so long since I have seen you.
Although my last vision of you was holding a Diet Dr. Pepper FOR ME - and what a vision it was!
I don't like that you are a working man, I miss you. Can you come back to working for me??? We never get to hang out, or talk, you never spend the night anymore, or go on dates with me.
Of course I understand you work, go to school, are in the top percentile of your class, are in school plays, have church callings, perform random acts of kindness and beauty. I just wanna be part of your schedule again. We've been working together since you were 12, and now next month you will be 18 (crap here come the tears again). I didn't realize how big the niche in my life is, that you fill.
Are these pangs of withdraws?? Am I mentally trying to prepare for next year?? Although we have lived in separate households for most of your life, I have always had a strong bond with you. I loved taking you places when I was in high school because people always assumed you were mine. And in a way, I think you are. It is true of all your siblings, AND we don't like to share you!!! Especially not with each other!!!
You are my weakness (and you know it) when it comes to spoiling you. I love shopping for you, giving and doing for you. I always have. It amazes me that you can handle to be the youngest and be spoiled by most around you, yet have such a STRONG work ethic and be respectful of those you interact with, and prioritize all your responsibilities (which are many). I'm so proud of you for earning your Eagle this year, I know it wasn't easy but you took the jobs and stress in stride.
We have also been hard on you, 3 sisters first of all isn't easy for anybody. You have not rebelled against us, you have embraced us and learned and taken notes. You know more about women than any man under 50 probably should, and it has made you a more sympathetic and patient man. There is no doubt in my mind that you will be the most amazing husband and father someday. I also know that you have the ability to go very far in life and be extremely successful. You ask questions that I have just started asking myself.
I love you more than you know, and want the best for you always.
your adoring sister,
