Design Thursday – Featured Design: You Make Me Proud

The day my sister told us she was taking the test to quality for a branch of US Government navy we were caught by surprised. The day she took the day and received high scores was expected. The day the naval officer came and took her away – which gave us only 2 weeks after she took the test – was devastating. The day she broke my heart.

Her leaving filled me with mixed emotions. I was happy for her to do something she seemed excited about, I was mad to lose a sister than others considered my twin, I was sad – it felt like my best friend was gone. I was lost without my companion.

Fast forward to today I am still filled with mixed emotions, but the emotions have changed. I look at her and I am elated she is happy, she has a beautiful family, and she’s acquired a strong sense of independence and freedom. She’s traveled the world, graduated college, and built a successful career. I am proud of her and her many successes.She inspires me to try harder.

We’ve come a long way from the worry filled months of not hearing from her.  A long way from the days of having to call the Red Cross to find her – my mom God bless her is the biggest worry wart ever. We’ve grown stronger as a family over the years. I don’t say it often enough but she’s makes me proud. I love you sister and everything about you. You took a risk, and received in return a generous payday.
