Dear Alli

I've been wanting to write this blog post for a while now, so today's Blogtember prompt to write a love letter seemed like the perfect opportunity.

Remember when we were little kids and shared a room? We had those matching pink blankets on our bunked beds. Those things were so scratchy on the underside! I remember when I first realized that I owed it to you to be a good example. I think I was five or six when I stole some chewing gum off mom's dresser and hid it in our room. Your two-year-old self found it and chewed it. Mom found you chewing gum in your room. I'll never forget the spanking I got. Being a mom now, I realize what a choking hazard that could have been for you!

We didn't always get along very well, but that has changed! I'm so proud of you and the woman you have become. You are the best auntie. It blesses me how much you love my little guys. I'm impressed with your work ethic and your drive to make yourself better. I'm glad you're pursuing your MBA. I'm happy that you waited for Mr. Right, and I love seeing you and Josh together. You're doing a good job with your housekeeping and cooking!

Most of all, I'm proud of the fact that you love God with your whole heart, and you seek to glorify Him with your life. It's an encouragement to me to watch you live your life for Him. I am so glad that I get to walk the journey with you. I'm excited to see all that He has for you.

Love you, sweetie.
Your Big Sister,


  1. I always wanted a sister to share clothes with! It's so lovely to read how much you care about your sister. She is going to love this so much! :-)

    1. Rachel, I've always been bigger than Alli, so we haven't really ever been able to share clothes! Haha!


Hey! I'd love to hear your thoughts on this topic!
