Happy Birthday Special Girl!

When I was little, I often asked my mom for a baby sister. I wanted someone to play Barbie with =) My wishes did come true. However, it was a little bit too late. When I finally got a baby sister, I was already 9 years old. Hence, when she was at "playing Barbie" stage, I was already a teenager. We never really played together =P 

Still, I was very happy to get a little sister. Moreover, she was a pretty baby. When she was 2 or 3 months old, she got really sick. She had to stay in the hospital for a month! I was scared and sad. I remember how I used to cry every time I saw any baby-related TV commercial. I was afraid to lose this pretty little sister. Miraculously, she was healed and healthy again. This pretty little baby soon grew into a witty, strong-willed, loyal, and caring girl. And I love her ...

Even though we never really played Barbie together, we are really close. Well... of course there were also times when we fight. Who doesn't? =P We were never able to stay mad to each other for long though =) 

When she was almost 15

Anyway, when I got married and moved to the US, I was sad because I knew I couldn't see her turned into a young woman. I wouldn't be there on her sweet 17th birthday. I wouldn't be there on her first day of college... Now that we live so far away from each other, all I can do is to pray for her.

Along with her age, I pray that God will give her maturity and wisdom. I also pray that she will continuously grow in her faith in God. May God use her to be a blessing for others around her. Of course I also pray for her health, success, and happiness.    

Happy birthday special girl! I love you!
