Sorry Susan you can't escape it now that it's on the internet, everyone knows!
For you see that little girl was my sister, my shorter than me but older than me sister. The sister who stayed behind the scenes in order to help me. The sister who made costumes, costumes and more costumes and then was content with letting me take the spotlight. The sister who showed me what your imagination could do. The sister who always liked my ideas even though I didn't always like hers.
You see God looked down that day and knew that this world would need someone brave enough to walk into Walmart and declare that even America needed missionaries.
God knew this world needed someone who would show them how modesty should look. Someone who would help others be modest when the world wouldn't.
Someone who could show others how smart they are. Someone who would truly laugh at anyone's joke even if she didn't get it.
God looked down and knew that I would need an older sister. God knew the world needed a gentle Lily and that the day she came needed to be just as gentle and loving as she would be.
I love you Susan.
