I am growing also as I watch you face difficult situations and overcome challenges. I've always told you that you can do hard things, and the older you get, I see that you can. What's more, you are doing hard things much more gracefully than I ever did. You teach me every day.
You are such a help to Dad and I. With almost four little siblings, you are dependable (becoming more so all the time) and smart. So, so smart and capable. We count on you for so many things and don't know what we'd do without your help.
