Here we go...in birth order.
Me, John, Shelly, and Brian
John - a jack of all trades. He has a natural talent for finding the beauty in nature, whether it's building furniture or taking pictures of his family. What I most admire about John is his ability to somehow make everyone in the room feel important. He is great about being able to talk to anyone, anywhere, anytime without making it feel like idle chit chat. It takes a smart, confident, kind person to be able to relate to so many people with such ease.
Shelly - the only thing bigger than her eyes is her heart. She wants to help everyone and almost seems drawn to the people who need a little more "Shelly" in their lives. When people compliment me on my kindness, friendliness, or like-ability I always respond with "you should meet my sister." She wants to help everyone and has touched more lives than she will ever realize. I think God gave her big eyes because she is constantly taking in her surroundings and looking for opportunities to offer assistance.
Levi - melts my heart. He is so smart and has a depth of knowledge that just amazes me. He has discovered that he enjoys learning about science and history (my worst two subjects) and he soaks up every little bit of knowledge he can. He is constantly teaching me things. This boy has a big brain, a big heart, and a big smile that I just can't tear myself away from.
As I was writing about each of my siblings I realized that I wanted to say the same things about each of them. They are all great with children, so patient, and not afraid to make a fool out of themselves if it keeps the child entertained! Striking up a conversation with a stranger is not a big deal to them and they do it with ease. They are all kind, funny, inspiring people to be looked up to and they push me to constantly be a better version of myself. I am lucky to have been placed in the same group as them.
