A Little Encouragement

Theses are photos of a clover flower that my sis Emily took the other day.

She said I could take the credit for them because she doesn't blog.

I told her that they were so good that taking credit for them was unthinkable.

She turned around.

Shy for a moment.

"Thank you."

That was all she said.

And then she want to her room to read.

I have a mean, selfish habit of not encouraging my siblings.

I'm the older sister and I use that for evil.

All it takes is for me to tell her that her photos are pretty and suddenly

she feels taller,


more ready to conqueror the world.

That's all it takes.

A "Good job"

And you are a hero.

She is a hero.

Emily you are a very sweet sister.
