I think everyone in my family secretly (or openly) envies my littlest sister Erica. Aside from being model-esque, she is generous and super bubbly. I don’t want to list all her other lovely qualities, because I think that would just bore everyone, so I will just focus on the quality I am most envious of!
Erica knows what she wants and goes for it. This might sound like something lots of people do, even I would consider myself someone to go after what they want. I think the difference with my little sister is she is so absolutely sure of what she wants. So often I have heard her say “I know” and we are all frustrated saying “No you don’t.” or “How can you just know?” But I think I often said that because I just wished I could be so certain of things.
When she really wants to buy something, she saves up for it and buys it. She doesn’t have to think about whether it is a good investment because she wants it bad enough that it just makes it a good investment. She will treat it well enough that it will last. She isn’t frivolous- and she doesn’t have to think forever (like me) about whether she wants one thing or another.
“Erica, why do you have to have your make-up done before we go out?” - I hassle her only because I do not have the energy to do mine whenever I go out… or the pride I should have in my appearance.
“Erica, how do you know you are going to stay with him forever?” –Because – she just does.
“Erica, why don’t you wear any bright colours?” – “Because I don’t want to,” she says. We tell her she needs colour to spice up her wardrobe- but she always looks good…
Erica is a force to be reckoned with… if you want the same job or the same b/f as her Watch Out!
Erica is an amazing sister to have- she is there for Jess and I always and has the biggest heart for her family. She can be crazy and silly and fun- and serious, determined and kind.
I miss her and love her! xo
Oh and Today is her Birthday!
So Happy Birthday little (you are still younger even if you aren’t shorter) sis!
