Don't count the miles, count the I love you's...
Gabby showed me this song. It is wonderful:
I have been missing my sister Gabby today. A lot.
This is Gabby, I haven't talked about her a whole ton on here yet which is a cryin shame cause she is one of the best people I've ever known.
Here are the wonderful things about Gabriella Bonita Heroux:
1. She is so funny. Like one time in the car she told the story of the movie Forever Strong. And don't worry, the story was about...45 minutes long. hahahhahahahahhahahah It was so funny.
Also I remember one time in the bathtub when we were little where she had a runny nose and she stood up and just blew her nose and a string of snot about 3 feet long came out. And it was so funny I almost died laughing and I will never forget it. EVER. SO funny.
2. Gabby is kind to everyone. It doesn't matter if they are cool or nerdy or hot or ugly or tall or short or lame or awesome--Gabby will be kind to them and call them her friend.
3. Gabby is her own person. It took her a long time of copying and being awkward, but she finally found her style and it is ADORABLE. Her hair. Her clothes. Her style in music, hobbies, men, etc. etc. Impeccable taste.
4. I know that no matter what happens or how I treat her, she will always, ALWAYS be there for me and be on my side. (Dag nab it my eyes are all stingy and watery. DARN YOU GABBY!) She is the person I know that will always listen to me and think I am wonderful even if I am a solid jerk. Which is probably not wise on her part sometimes, but it means the world to me. She is my best friend in the entire world, and I am grateful every single day that I get to spend eternity with her as my sister.
I love you so much Gabby! Be brave, be strong, be smart, and be sweet. You are amazing and don't let anyone ever tell you different. You mean the world to me, and my heart hurts so much that I can't be there this year to help you get through your first year of high school. But you don't need me. You're a superstar, and babe, you got this. You will do a beautiful job. I can't wait until you come out here over MEA. I just want to show you off to all my friends. I love you more than you will ever know, and I am so so so proud of the person you are becoming. You are the best sister and role model anyone could ever ask for.
Be good! I love you :)
