Because She Does, Thursday




Kelsi (don’t you love that name?) is my little sister- she is a piece of childhood that cannot be lost, she is always there to remind me and reminisce of good times during that precious time. Kelsi has a knack for bringing about pure and innocent things but yet has                                                                                                                                                                                             a very high sense of maturity. She surrounds herself with people and in the mist of them can pick out how people are feeling and can respond to their needs properly and with good timing.

Kelsi makes her education critical, and makes it a point everyday to improve her mind. She uses her intelligence to help others and bring light or laughter to every situation. Along with her education, Kelsi loves her country and is aware of what is happening in the world. She is a good reminder of the importance of being patriotic and being aware of our surroundings. 
Most of all Kelsi is my sister who I love; we have spent many nights/days talking sharing things close to our hearts or sharing something fun and silly. And I know that whatever comes out of my mouth will not be judged by Kelsi because she loves me for who I am. 
But to not make this too long winded I will say that sisters (and Kelsi in particular) function as a safety net in a chaotic world simply by being there for each other. 




*I've received a couple of submissions for 'Because she does' from women from your own life(i'm really excited to start incorporating them)... so don't you forget to send in yours if you think of anyone!
