There are so many things I admire about you that I have to thank you for.
Let me start by saying thank you for being who you are. You’re all that I aspire to.
You’re self-confident, strong, determined, loving, kind and generous. You have no bad bone in your body, and you never do anything to compromise your good heart and gentle soul.
You were always the best role model, and you bravely paved the way for me and made sure that I wouldn’t make the same mistake twice.
I’m really happy to have you as a sister and a friend, and I can honestly say that I learned so much from you. I’m blessed to have you, and I hope you never change.
Thank you for always having time for me. I really appreciate that you never make me feel like a burden.
Whenever I need to talk, you’re there for me. Through every broken heart, every tear and every fear of not being good enough, you were there wiping my tears and making sure I knew what I was worth.
Thank you for putting up with my stubborn head. I know it’s not always easy for me to be around and that I can talk you out of it, but you never resent me for it.
You know how deep down I am, so you know I never want anything to get rough or mean, and you never hold a grudge.
Thank you for always making me feel included. When we were growing up, I know it wasn’t the coolest thing to bring your little sister around, and you probably weren’t happy about it at the time, but I really appreciate you finding time for me, even when you prefer to be with your friends.
I will never forget all the times when you let me go to the mall with you, go on long trips with you and your friends, or let me join you on coffee dates. It really made my day.
Thank you for always being my best friend. I know it sounds like a cliché, but there’s no friend like a sister. I can tell you literally anything.
I can share with you my deepest, darkest doubts I’d ever dream of telling anyone else.
And I won’t even feel weird. It’s perfectly normal to share the craziest parts of yourself with you. Thank you for that.
Thank you for being my shoulder to cry too many times to count. Thank you for giving up everything when I need it and coming to my rescue.
It makes me feel so much better. Thank you for never making me feel like I’m burdening you with something.
I know it can be too much sometimes, but you can never tell because you do everything with the best intentions, and I really admire you for that.
I think I’m really lucky to be able to share everything in my life with you.
We were there for absolutely everything in life, and I couldn’t imagine it any differently.
Thank you for being my partner in every adventure I’ve had.
Thank you for never doubting it, but for just joining me on the trip and hoping for the best.
I’m so glad that we can be so honest with each other that no one is offended.
There’s nothing I can’t tell you, and vice versa. I could never imagine being able to share something else with someone else that I can share with you.
People will probably think I’m a freak sometimes, but you will always understand, and that’s important to me.
Thank you for always telling me how it is, and you never embellish anything.
If my hair is a mess, you’ll be the first to tell me. If my face looks swollen and I look like a zombie, you’ll tell me without hesitation.
No one else would dare, but you always will, and thank God for that. If it wasn’t for your cruel honesty, God knows where I’d be.
Thank you for being on the same page with me! I feel like we can communicate without words, and we would understand each other better than anyone else.
You can read my mind and know exactly when something is bothering me, no matter how hard I try to hide it.
You can always feel when I’m downstairs and you come to talk to me about it. I feel so much better, not even knowing I need it.
I don’t even have to use words with you, we know exactly what the other person is thinking just by looking at each other. It really comes in handy when we’re with a bunch of people.
Just one look, and we know exactly how the other feels and what she wants to say. That’s pretty damn great.
Thank you for knowing me better than I do. Thank you for always knowing what I need, and I don’t have to say it.
You know what makes me happy, and you know what makes me sad, and I never have to say it out loud.
When I’m mad at someone, you’re the first person to find out, and you never tell anyone. I think it’s so great. I swear, we’re like twins!
Thank you for being my biggest supporter. You always believed in me, more than I ever believed in myself, and you helped me see my value and my potential when I couldn’t.
You always encouraged me to follow my dreams, comforting me if I ever had any doubts and God knows I did it!
Thank you for pushing me to get better. I always try to do what I think you would do in any situation, and if I get the feeling that you don’t approve, I probably will never do that thing.
You’re my moral compass, and you’re one of the rare people whose opinion is very important to me.
I never want to let you down, so I make sure you’re always proud of my choices.
I really appreciate you always letting me be myself. You never make me change, and you encourage me to stay who I am. If people can’t accept that, they’re not meant to be in my life.
I can see that now. And I promise that I will never change for anyone. I will always not apologize to myself, and who doesn’t like it is their problem. I don’t feel the need to apologize to anyone that I’ve learned from you.
And finally, thank you for making me laugh like that. I’m not there for anyone with a sense of humor like you.
We could literally die laughing at things just you and I find funny!
I’ve cried so many times laughing with you and people probably think we’re crazy, but I think it’s so great to be able to laugh at the same things and know for sure that another person will find something more than just funny!
This is very important to me. Laughter is my favorite pastime, and there is no one who can make me cry with laughter like you.
You’re one of the funniest people I’ve ever known, and the amount of laughter that happens when we’re in the same room is beyond any measure, and I absolutely love it.
I really appreciate you as a person, sister, friend, daughter, and any other function that you perform in your life!
You are a special lady, and I am so grateful for you! I hope for another hundred years we will laugh at the stupidest things. Nothing will make me happier.
All the love,
Your little one.
