I have way too many comments on this one:
1. You are way cooler than I am and have done more even though I have 7 years on you.
2. Tithing counts, but again that windows of heaven opening and blessings and blessings kind of evens things up.
3. You have had food poisoning? Poor thing.
4.Where was I when you and Mom were sliding down the banister of the Statue of Liberty?
5.You have hitchhiked? You are your father's daughter.
6.Did I know that you had gone to Venice? Oh yeah, that study abroad in Italy. You are so cool.
7. I think that we went to a Nazi Concentration Camp. I am a little hazy myself.
8.You are awesome.
