marli







her name means "living fragrance," but she is so much more. her whole life is a sweet scent, not just as an example to those around her, but living for Christ as well. you can always tell when marli is in the room by her constant smile, laughter, kind words of encouragement to everyone around her and wherever a group of people are gathered marli will be right there with them. she is a friend to anyone {except for strangers in walmart}. the little babies at church all love marli and she loves them. all the parents trust her with their kids. if anyone needs a babysitter, marli is one of the first ones to be asked.
she is my best friend. there is no one else i'd rather be around than marli. whenever i'm feeling down she knows just what to say and do to cheer me up. one time when i had a big something that needed to be told, i told her {she's the one i'm most comfortable with}, she then went with me to tell mom that late night. i will never forget that.
i am myself the most around marli. we know how to cut up and have a good time. we know how to make each other laugh. our trips to town make my world go round. she's my santa buddy, my walking wallet and the sprinkles to my cupcake of life.
everyone may not have a sister, but i do and i believe she's the best one at that. everyone has a best friend and i do too. her name is marli.

{happy 20th birthday today. i love you to pluto and back and i always will}

p.s. marli has a blog. go here and leave her some follow\comment love for her special day please. <3

She's a sunshine in our home! Also, "say to wisdom, you are my sister." (Proverbs) God has given her wise counsel for her siblings. Listen and hear! We have tried to think of special happenings to celebrate her day but nothing measures up to the "SPECIAL" she is to us!Happy, happy day to our princess.
Much love, Mom

What a beautiful tribute to a loving sister. You couldn't have said it any better. She feels the same about you as well. I know of sisters who never speak anymore because of a silly instance, and that is sad. I love my sister, Linda, just the same. I just don't tell her enough.

Love you both,

Nana
