When I was growing up my family consisted of three brothers and two sisters. My two sisters are much younger than I am. As I grew older I always wished I had an older sister (while I have an older brother it's not the same thing).
To my way of thinking an older sister is someone who can inspire you to do things you never thought possible. She also listens and can give you advice like know one else can. Well Susan is that person to me. When I first met her almost four years ago I knew she was the older sister I had always dreamed of having.
Susan just by her wonderful example has taught me to belief in myself again. I have never known anyone who always has to be doing something to help others like Susan. In other words she matters and every day of her life she makes a positive difference in the world.
The most important thing Susan taught me was this: don't do anything to embarrass yourself, your family, your faith or your team. Once you lose your honor and integrity you have lost everything.
My older sister, Susan, helped me to turn my life around. The encouragement she has given me to go out and do what I once thought was impossible. She has helped me to get my life back again. Because she believes in me and sees me not for who I am but for who I will become. That's why she will always be my big sister and more importantly my hero.
