We met as freshmen in college. In high school we never would have been friends.
But the circumstances--mutual dependence for success, needing someone to lean on when things seemed hopeless, knowing no one else, a general distrust of people--it all brought us together.
You were the person I wasn't looking for until I found you and realized just what I was missing out on. I hated you sometimes. We disagreed on a lot. But you've always kept me grounded.
Kept me sane. Kept me focused on the big picture. The next step. You saw potential in me that I didn't see in myself. And I saw that in you.
And I thank you every day for the unconditional love and support that I imagine a sister would give. Because I choose you as my sister everyday. No matter what.
