Big Shoes!

So I have been thinking I have some big shoes to fill! My older sisters are amazing and set a wonderful example for their little sister (yes Amy I am still your LITTLE sister, she hates when I say that:)) But here I sit wallowing because I have a headache!

I just read Amy's blog and she is babysitting and had a poop filled morning, and all I have done is whine about my head hurting and feed my little baby! It truly amazes me that Amy never (well seemingly never) gets overwhelmed, she has centered her life around her family and the church and never seems to fail one bit at being there for whoever needs it. I know for a fact she is an over achiever. She takes meals to everyone and checks up on people and well she never ceases to amaze me! I suppose that by living so close to such a wonderful example I should hope that some rubs off on me!

Then there is Annie, who is a great example of patients and lots of love. She has her share of totally frustrating experiences see one of her blogs ( and she still shows us all a love that has no end! Her patients and trust in the Lord will surely pan out and she is an excellent example of enduring to the end! How grateful I am to her for that wonderful example!

Then Emily of course! Also a fabulous example! She works so hard to provide extra money for her little family and in the process she brings smiles to everyones faces. She like Amy and Annie has total faith in Heavenly Father and a undying love of her family. She has the ability to lift peoples spirits and make them feel a worth they may have forgotten they had! She also has a fantastic wit!

With all these wonderful sisters I am blessed beyond belief and yet I have wonderful examples to me all over the best of the best though reside in my family. My sisters have learned from my wonderful mother and grandmother. They installed values in us at a young age, and I am sure someday I will be the great example that my sisters are to me! I love them and I hope they know it!
