My sister's life parallels that of Job. As the middle child in a family of 3 girls, she had a tough time competing with a type A older sister and a rambunctious younger sister. Little did she know how much I've admired her since we were children. Starting with her outward appearance and ending with her kind and giving inner self. No matter what chaos was going on in our lives, she has always been there for me and my sister. She married a wonderful man and had 2 beautiful boys. When the boys were age 4 and 2 her husband was shot by a former drug addicted employee. He has been a quadriplegic on ventilation for the last 20 years. From the beginning when her husband begged her to let him go, she fought for him and her boys. I guess being that middle child rebel is a good thing! She fought to ensure her husband received excellent nursing care round the clock, often though it meant she stayed up for 24 hours at a time. She fought for her boys to succeed in life despite sacrificing herself for their needs. There is nothing she won't do for them or her sisters. She enrolled in school and opened her own business to support the family. Now she is embroiled in a crisis of her own. Using her strength as my guide, I will now fight for her with every fiber of my being. She will always be my little sister and my best friend. I love you MORE!
