This entry is dedicated to an extraordinary person – my sister, MONIQUE, who also happens to be Steve’s Mom. I want everyone to know how special she is and always will be to me. She is not only my sister but my very best friend.
Monique is a warm, loving and giving lady who touched so many people’s lives. She unselfishly created a wonderful life for her two sons and provided a home filled with love and safety. She still devotes her time to her boys and always puts herself last. She is extremely kind and considerate and is always there for her family. My sister is an amazing woman who has overcome so much and still has a touch of a child in her heart.
I remember when she was once just my older sister. It is really amazing how a little baby boy can change someone’s life. The reality of this transformation occured to me when I first saw her and Steve in the hospital. It was then that I knew deep down inside that Monique was not just my sister anymore. At that very moment, she also became a “Mom”. And what a great Mother she is. My sister is such a role model although I don’t think I could every live up to who she is.
Steve always said that his Mom is his biggest hero. Many regard a hero as someone who is idealized or admired for superior qualities or deeds of any kind. My sister is also my hero because she has all those characteristics. Throughout the years, Monique has demonstrated all the qualities of a hero. Her ‘super powers’ include making huge sacrifices, displays wisdom and she still influences the lives of many. My sister has shown me that not all heroes live in comic books or cartoons. They can be ordinary people in everyday life.
In many ways, my sister is like our mother. She has an ear to listen, a pal to laugh with and a shoulder to cry on. They both taught me how precious life is. Our mother passed away several years ago and the greatest gift she instilled in the both of us was the value of hard work and helping others. I had to grow up and become a mother myself before I could realize what she had gone through and done for us.
I would like to wish a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Sister! She is among the best mom in the world. Her example of unconditional love encourages me to believe the world isn’t such a bad place.
Writing this entry has given me the opportunity to reflect on how SPECIAL my sister has been to me. She has always been my best friend in life. Thanks Monique for being just who you are. You are in my heart always…. I love you!
A sister is someone who loves you from the heart,
No matter how much you argue you cannot be drawn apart.
She is a joy that cannot be taken away,
Once she enters your life, she is there to stay.
A friend who helps you through difficult times,
Her comforting words are worth much more than dimes.
A partner who fills your life with laughs and smile,
These memories last for miles and miles.
When she is by your side, the world is filled with life,
When she is not around, your days are full of strife.
A sister is a blessing, who fills your heart with love,
She flies with you in life with the beauty of a dove.
A companion to whom you can express your feelings,
She doesn’t let you get bored at family dealings.
Whether you are having your ups or downs,
She always helps you with a smile and never frowns.
With a sister you cannot have a grudge,
She is as sweet as chocolate and as smooth as fudge.
Having a sister is not just a trend,
It is knowing you can always turn to her, your best friend.
