Offical Ellie Week: Day 3

Once again, thank you for following me through Ellie week. Today is Ellie's official birthday. She's 12 now. So I thought I would post a special letter dedicated to her. I thought I would do this at the end of Ellie week, but since it's Ellie birthday, I think I'll do it today.

Dear Ellie,
Wow! I can't believe you're 12! One more year and you'll be a teenager! (Yikes!) Well, I'm not going to think about that right now. I'll focus on today and take one day at  a time:)

First of all, I just want to say how awesome you are. Yes, I know I make you out to be this crazy person, but truthfully, I admire you. Because you're never afraid to be yourself, no matter where you are. You love your personality. You're unique in your own way. You're not afraid to make funny faces and then put them on Instagram.

This might sound weird to you, but you're one of the nicest people I know. Never do you fail to do something nice for me everyday, whether it be making soup or singing the Olaf song when I'm upset. Every time you know I'm sad. So you hug me and whisper, "Put me in summer and I'll be a.." And you won't let go until I say, "Happy snowman."

Thank you for putting up with my annoying way of bursting into random songs for no reason. And my adoration for Rudo. Thank you for reminding me that I'm my own person too. You're not weird. You're unique. And guess what? I wouldn't want it any other way.

I'm sure through your life, you're going to get some negative comments from people. (Already have in fact) Don't ever believe them. You're not a wimp. Sure, you might not be good at everything you try, but I wouldn't want you to change. I wouldn't like you shorter or taller or with a slightly different personality. You're awesome just the way you are.

Yes, I know I'm your sister and I'm supposed to say all this. So I'm going to change the subject. Remember, whenever you're down, that God created you. You're not perfect, but you have a purpose. He loves you just the way you are and he wouldn't change you. He could if he wanted to, but he wouldn't. Jesus died for you. I'm so glad you have a relationship with Him and you're continuing to grow in it.

Above all, thank you for always being there for me. We have our arguments, but I can never stay mad at you for long. You've given me confidence in myself and showed me that it's good to be you in front of people. I know you'll always been there and I'm so excited to see what God has in store for us. I know a can be a jerk sometimes. Thank you for forgiving me. I wouldn't want anyone in the world to be my sister.


P.S THANK YOU for asking for the Percy Jackson books and FROZEN for your birthday. It's awesome.

Ellie, you never fail to live out this song.


  1. Sorry I'm a couple days late! Eek! Happy Birthday, Ellie! You sound like a beautiful person, inside and out. I hope you had an amazing birthday. Have fun being 12! It goes by quick, trust me. =)

    Keep your focus on God in all that you do,

    ~Jessica Joy <3
